Revealed: Chelsea’s stance on summer Raheem Sterling sale


An insight into the stance of the powers that be at Premier League giants Chelsea on the potential sale of attacker Raheem Sterling has been provided on Thursday.

The subject of outgoings has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines at Stamford Bridge over the course of the last couple of weeks.

This comes amid ongoing efforts on the part of Todd Boehly and co. to clear out the host of deadwood to have accumulated in incoming boss Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.

And, to their credit, the Blues have thus far done a superb job of precisely that.

Despite the transfer window having technically been open for less than a week now, all of Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kalidou Koulibaly and Mateo Kovacic have already secured permanent Chelsea exits.

Could the aforementioned Sterling, though, be next?

Wide-man Sterling is of course fresh off something of an underwhelming debut campaign in west London, which saw him notch just six Premier League goals in the colours of his new club.

In turn, murmurs have long spread in the media that, in the face of a satisfactory offer, Chelsea could simply cut their losses and move the England international on.

This, however, will in fact not be the case.

That’s according to transfer expert Ben Jacobs, who has confirmed late on Thursday that ‘Chelsea are not considering selling Raheem Sterling’.

Not only that, but Sterling himself is understood to be ‘fully committed’ to the cause at Stamford Bridge, excited with the prospect of lining out under the watch of Mauricio Pochettino.
