Chelsea 'Confident' Of Closing £35 Million Transfer For Manchester City Star

With UEFA Nations League action coming to a conclusion in midweek, players who are looking to move clubs can start negotiating exits without distraction.

After months and months of negotiations, Erling Haaland was finally announced as a Manchester City player on Monday morning, completing his £51 million move from Borussia Dortmund.

The reigning Premier League champions have swiftly move onto other key targets, with Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips and Brighton's Marc Cucurella seemingly top of the agenda.

There is also some departures to consider. Gabriel Jesus looks like he has one foot outside the Etihad Stadium doors, with Mikel Arteta's Arsenal strongly linked with a £50 million move.


Oleksandr Zinchenko has also been considering his future after a recent renaissance in form. Operating as a central midfielder for Ukraine, the 25-year-old has earned a lot of plaudits from around Europe and particular interest from the Premier League.

However, one player who still has a very uncertain future is star forward, Raheem Sterling. The England international is in the final year of his Manchester City contract and is reportedly weighing up his options before committing to a long-term deal.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have both been credited with interest, but a report by Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed Chelsea are now confident of closing a deal for Raheem Sterling.


The former Champions League holders are on the lookout for forward's to bolster their frontline, and for this particular deal, the transfer fee could be around £35 million.

Earlier in the day, Nathan Gissing reported that the current feeling is that Chelsea are more interested in Raheem Sterling than Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, however, their interest in the latter is still active.

Since swapping Merseyside for Manchester in 2015, Raheem Sterling has scored a staggering 131 goals for the Blues and played a part in some of the club's most memorable achievements.

On a personal note, Raheem Sterling was awarded the FWA Footballer of the Year in 2018/19 for his incredible campaign which saw him help Manchester City win a domestic treble.


The Etihad club will surely be desperate to see Raheem Sterling sign a new deal, so will be doing everything to convince him to remain at the club this summer.
