Chelsea have made two big signings already this summer, but with one of them, his club apparently made a late attempt to convince him to stay, according to a report today.
Raheem Sterling scored his first Chelsea goal at the weekend in a friendly against Udinese, and Blues fans have already welcomed him into the Chelsea family with open arms. You get a sense of feeling that he is really going to become a cult hero at Stamford Bridge.
But should City have persuaded him to stay, none of this might not have been happening right now, but it was Sterling’s desire to be an integral part of a starting line up that convinced him to leave City and seemingly his mind was always made up, as reported here below by Ben Jacobs.
City’s loss and Chelsea’s gain for sure. And as the season starts on Saturday, Blues fans will be buzzing to see Sterling make his first appearance for the club in a competitive capacity at least.
