Raheem Sterling has opened up and admitted that a move to Chelsea ‘made alot of sense to him’

Sterling won four Premier League titles with City, the League Cup five times and the FA Cup once – and is easily regarded as one of the finest attackers in the Premier League

But after he made the decision to leave Man City earlier in the transfer window – the club quickly moved in to make sure that they were the club that secured the services of the Englishman

Sterling was the clubs first major signing since the Todd Boehly-led takeover, which followed the club reaching the final in four of the six cup competitions they played in over the past two seasons.

“This was the option that was tailor-made to my personal goals, and with my family as well, and the direction the club is going in,” Sterling added.

“It’s a team that’s competing and only going to get better. With the new ownership as well, it made a lot of sense.

“It was tough, of course, with the time I spent at City and there’s lots of memories and top moments.

“But the year and a bit that I was in and out of the team taught me a lot about myself, made me value a lot of things and I tried to get things in order.

“You have to make the decision that’s best for yourself.”

Since his Premier League debut – Sterling has made 469 first-team appearances and earned 77 England caps – and aims to be more of a leader at Chelsea than he was at City.

“Inside the changing room and at the football club, there’s a developing side of me which I’d like to see a lot more,” he said.

“That’s to be more involved in decisions in the dressing room, to be more vocal, and try to drive the team on.”
