‘Unreal If True’ ‘Very Good Fee For A Baller’ ‘Please Make This Happen’ Fans Keen For Chelsea To Secure ‘Bargain’ 40M Transfer

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling remains Chelsea’s number one target and could be signed for a fee between £40m and £45m, according to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs.

Speaking on the Si and Dan Talk Chelsea podcast, Jacobs claimed that Sterling is the Blues’ leading candidate to strengthen up front, with Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele seen as the backup option:

Supporters on Twitter are pretty happy with Sterling’s asking price, and many are now hoping that Chelsea press ahead and get a move over the line for the England international:

The £40m figure is certainly a lot more appealing than Sterling’s original valuation, which was reported to be as much as £60m. While it is still a sizeable fee, considering the 27-year-old has a year remaining on his contract, it does correlate with the amount Bayern Munich paid Liverpool for Sadio Mane, who was in a similar position.

Considering Sterling is a few years younger than Mane, whilst also about to hit his prime years, it looks as if Chelsea would be getting a pretty decent deal.
