It is believed that City formally discussed Sterling’s desire to bring an end to a stellar seven-year stay at the Etihad Stadium at the beginning of June during a conversation. He still has 12-months to run in his City's  £300,000-a-week contract.

He will earn in the region of £315,000-per-week at Chelsea, where he will sign a long term contract.

Sterling, 27, have also played at Liverpool and has been a key member of Manchester City’s squad in their Premier League dominance in recent years.

The City star saw his playing time reduced last campaign and he'd expect things to change. 

He wants assurances that he will be a major part of Tuchel's plans at Stamford Bridge, as he looks forward to make the England squad under Gareth Southgate ahead of the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.
