Raheem Sterling, 27, who join Manchester City in 2015 from Liverpool is currently in the final 12 months of his contract at City and has become a person of interest for the London outfit.
Chelsea under their new owners are keen to make Raheem Sterling their first summer arrival. The Blues have the obvious attraction of being in the Champions League for the London-born player.
Sterling, who is yet to win the Champions League, scored 13 goals in 30 Premier League appearances as he won his fourth title last term.
The English-Jamaican forward future was put into more doubt as City signed Erling Halaand especially after not featuring in both legs of last season’s Champions League semi-final match versus Real Madrid
Sterling did spark that memorable last-day comeback by setting up Ilkay Gundogan’s crucial first goal as Pep Guardiola’s side came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and pip Liverpool to the Premier League.
