Market Desk (sports): Given that Sterling is heading into the last year of his contract and is open to a move away. Chelsea has been the most interested side in the winger and it appears a deal to take him to London is now close to being finalized.
Sterling has another year left on his contract at Manchester City. The club wanted to keep him. It was proposed to extend the contract. But Sterling has told the club he wants to play in the new club’s jersey for the new season.
Sterling, who has played 74 international appearances for England, has scored 17 goals in 47 appearances this season, but has never been Pep Guardiola’s first choice. Although the city coach did not say anything on his own, the British media had earlier reported that Sterling was gasping for breath while sitting on the reserve bench. He now wants to leave Manchester City. The main purpose is the same, to ensure regular play.
