According to a report by HITC, Chelsea’s new project revolved around young players who have huge potential, and they are looking to build a team for the future.

Raheem Sterling: Boehly’s statement signing post-takeover

Sterling was one of the initial big signings made by Chelsea’s new owner Todd Boehly. It was a statement signing as they acquired him from Manchester City for a fee of £47.5 million in the summer of 2022.

Since joining the club, Sterling has been a very important part of their first team. The club might have struggled because of all the changes that have happened over the last few seasons, but the former Liverpool star has surely done his bit.

He has featured in a total of 68 matches for the Blues and has contributed towards 28 goals. In the ongoing season, the 29-year-old has featured in 30 matches and has contributed towards 15 goals. Mauricio Pochettino has used him in six different roles and he has delivered each time.

No place for Raheem Sterling in the new Blues project

While he remains an integral part of their first team and still has over three years left on his deal, he might not be in their long-term plans. Despite being a marquee signing in the Boehly early, the Blues seem to be ready to negotiate his departure.

Over the past few transfer windows, Chelsea have focused on signing young players who have huge potential. Their project under is now focused on signing young prospects thanks to co-owner Behdad Eghbali’s hands-on approach in the past 12 to 18 months.

Their plan is to go ahead with youth, and they are ready to sanction to departure of their senior players. As a result, there is no place for the former Manchester City winger in their ranks beyond this season. They will look to move the versatile forward in the summer. But it remains to be seen how keen he is on leaving given how settled he is in London.
