Raheem Sterling Close To Signing For Chelsea
Manchester City are close to completing another deal that will boost their coffers. They have almost completed the sale of Raheem Sterling to Chelsea for 52 million euros.
That is just the figure they plan to pay for Kalvin Phillips to Leeds United and also what Arsenal are likely to pay for Gabriel Jesus.
Something is up with 52, as it is becoming Manchester City’s favourite number in the transfer market. It’s the amount of millions they will pay to sign Kalvin Phillips – with the transfer of one of their gems in between – the amount they have in mind to agree for the sale of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal and, now, it has been leaked that it is also what they will receive for letting Sterling leave for Chelsea.
The "Daily Mail" and "football.london" are the media that have published this information. They understand that the agreement between the Sky Blues and the Blues could be official in a matter of days. It is also assumed that the deal will be completed for the aforementioned 52 million euros, which will have a very positive impact on the Etihad Stadium’s coffers.
To understand this, a simple sum is enough. If the club pays 52 million for Kalvin Phillips and receives 52 for both Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, it will be left with 52 million in profit and the player Pep Guardiola wanted. It’s a great fit to improve the balance sheet after the addition of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
This is just two days after the transfer window opened, so Manchester City have become one of the fastest moving clubs this summer. As a result, they will have plenty of time to make the moves they want to deal with in what looks to be an exciting two months.
