The international player for the Three Lions signed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge that would keep him with the team through 2027 summer. Sterling has struggled to score goals, much like his Chelsea teammates. In 15 games this season, he has scored just four league goals. Sterling, 28, transferred from Manchester City, a frequent Premier League champion, to the Blues for £50 million.
Additionally, Football Insider claims that Chelsea is open to letting Sterling leave, particularly because they managed to steal Mykhailo Mudryk away from Arsenal. The 22-year-old wonderkid committed to an eight-and-a-half-year contract after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk for £88 million. On Sunday during halftime, Mudryk was introduced to the crowd at Stamford Bridge.
Ukrainian Mudryk may start before Sterling returns from injury, which might hurt Sterling's prospects of reclaiming a starting position. Graham Potter, the team's manager, had this to say about the January signing: "He's lively, one-versus-one, can threaten the goal. I believe he is already popular among our supporters.
