Chelsea have been in talks with Manchester City over a deal for Raheem Sterling for a price tag very similar to what Chelsea are signing Raphinha for, does this mean they will slow their pursuit of Sterling? 

Nick Purewal of PA reports that the Raphinha deal is said to be part of a double deal to strengthen Chelsea's attack, possibly funded by the outgoings of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku's loan move.

Should Chelsea get Raphinha over the line, it will be interesting to see what happens with the Raheem Sterling deal.
