Raheem Sterling gives condition to join Chelsea in £60m deal
Chelsea want to sign Manchester City's Raheem Sterling this summer and are willing to spend £60 million, according to the UK Sun.
The 27-year-old is set to become a free agent next year, and talks with the Premier League winners over a new contract have stagnated.
Pep Guardiola, City's manager, would want Sterling to stay, but the club does not want to lose one of its key assets on a free transfer next summer.
Chelsea's new owners are willing to back Thomas Tuchel with a £200 million budget and make big squad additions in order to keep up with Manchester City and Liverpool next season.
Sterling is keen on a return to his London roots, but will seek assurances from Tuchel over the role he is likely to play in his plans.
Tuchel already has an abundance of attacking options in his squad, but with doubts over the futures of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, he is likely to be able to offer Sterling the guarantee of first team football he craves.
