Raheem Sterling announces exit ahead of Chelsea transfer


Raheem Sterling has penned an emotional open letter to Manchester City fans as he prepares to join Chelsea in a £50million move. The English international will sign a five-year contract (with the option of a further 12 months) worth significantly more than his existing £300,000-a-week.

“Seven seasons, 11 major trophies, a lifetime of memories,” wrote Sterling. “To the coaching staff who have played a massive role in my development over the years. To my teammates who have become more than just those I share a pitch with.

“To the backroom staff, to the office staff, to the fans who have tirelessly supported the team. And to everyone involved with Manchester City, my respect for you couldn’t be greater. What a ride it’s been.

“I am thankful for the ups and the downs as it’s the downs that have at times, tested my strength and resolve, and enabled me to stand here in front of you as the best possible version of myself.”
