Sterling close to signing for his third Big Six team in England

In order to make an official announcement about the former Manchester City winger joining Chelsea, the club is now working out the last formalities.

Sterling, 27, will join Chelsea as the third "Big Six" squad after Liverpool and Manchester City.

Matthijs de Ligt, one of Chelsea's primary summer transfer targets, has agreed a deal with Bayern Munich, but just the last formalities remain for Raheem Sterling to join the Blues. Sterling has his sights set on the final 'Big Six' spot.

According to the Independent, Chelsea and England international Sterling have reached a deal on Sterling's move and the London club expects him to participate in the United States team's pre-season tour.

It's widely reported that Sterling, 27, is pleased with his new contract at Chelsea and is eager to play for the club until 2027.

The Reds (where Sterling previously played from 2012 to 2015) and Manchester City will be Sterling's first two 'Big Six' opponents this season (he has defended his shirt since 2015 and had a contract until 2023). The Jamaican-born England international will be returning to Queens Park Rangers, where he began his professional career as a junior player, after joining Chelsea.
