EPL: Sterling in US to meet new Chelsea team-mates ahead of £50m move

 Raheem Sterling has flown to Los Angeles to link up with his soon-to-be new Chelsea team-mates ahead of official confirmation of his move from Man City.

Sterling is close to joining the Blues in a deal worth £47.5m, rising to £50m and has already undergone a medical.

The England international could make his Chelsea debut in Charlotte next Thursday or against Arsenal in the Florida Cup final the following Saturday.

Blues boss, Thomas Tuchel, made it clear he wanted Sterling to take on a key role in his attacking overhaul.

Sterling will sign a five-year contract worth significantly more than his existing £300,000 a week.

There is also the option for him to extend it for one more year.
