This will further add to the speculation that the City man is on his way out of Manchester, with a move to Chelsea the most likely to happen.
Raheem Sterling has negotiated to sell his house in Cheshire to Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to @sbates_people. 🏴📰— City Xtra (@City_Xtra) July 2, 2022
The Stamford Bridge club is interested in bringing the 27-year-old winger to the club after manager Thomas Tuchel expressed his wish to work with Sterling.
It has been reported that a £45 million deal is ‘well advanced’, with the two clubs hoping for an agreement to be reached as soon as possible.
Chelsea are in the market for an attacker after the departure of Romelu Lukaku, who has returned to Inter Milan on loan. Lukaku leave the Blues for the second time, less than a year after returning to the club for a massive £97.5 million deal.
Sterling is believed to want a fresh challenge after seeing his opportunities limited at the Etihad stadium. Sterling made 44 appearances last season but most of them were as a substitute.
Chelsea have new direct contact scheduled with Man City to close Raheem Sterling deal. Positive talks also on Friday, waiting for final details on both player and club sides in order to complete the agreement. 🚨🔵 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 2, 2022

Since making his controversial move from Liverpool to City back in 2015 in a deal worth £44 million, Sterling has been a huge success at City.
In the seven years that Sterling has spent with City, the winger has won four Premier League titles, four League Cup trophies and an FA Cup. He is one of the most decorated players in the club’s history.
In total, Sterling has made 339 appearances in all competitions, scoring 131 goals.
With just one year left on his current deal and his desire for a fresh challenge, this could be the perfect opportunity for the Etihad club to cash in on Sterling.
Will Sterling leave City in the summer transfer window? Only time will tell.
