Official: Raheem Sterling Joins Chelsea, Confirms Manchester City Exit

Raheem Sterling has confirmed he will complete his move from Manchester City to Chelsea on Wednesday after penning an emotional farewell letter to the Premier League champions.

“The Blues have reportedly paid £50m for the England international, who has put to paper on a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Sterling, 27, leaves City having scored 131 goals in 337 games during a successful seven-year spell at the Etihad.

Seven seasons, eleven major trophies, a lifetime of memories.

To the coaching staff who have played a massive role in my development over the years, to my teammates who have become more than just those I share a pitch with, to the backroom staff, to the office staff, to the fans who have tirelessly supported the team, and to everyone involved with Manchester City, my respect for you couldn’t be greater.

What a ride it’s been.

I am thankful for the ups and the downs. As it’s the downs that have, at times, tested my strength and resolve, and enabled me to stand here in front of you as the best possible version of myself.

I arrived in Manchester a 20-year-old, today, I leave as a man.

Thank you for your endless support. It’s been an honour to wear the shirt of Manchester City”.
