A report this afternoon by Matt Law and James Ducker broke the news that Chelsea and Raheem Sterling have reached an agreement over personal terms. The agreement will make him Chelsea's highest-paid player, with a figure of over £300,000-a-week being reported.

The Blues are keen to wrap this transfer within the next 24 hours and this is seen as possible. The squad is set to depart for the U.S. this coming weekend and manager Thomas Tuchel wants Sterling to be a part of the group.
