(Video) Watch Raheem Sterling Unbelievable ‘deed’ to Former team mates Gabriel Jesus in Florida cup Final in USA

Raheem Sterling completed his move to Chelsea from Manchester City in a deal worth £47.5m and Thomas Tuchel said he was “super happy” to land the forward.

The 27-year-old has signed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge with the option of a further 12 months and has linked up with Thomas Tuchel’s squad on their pre-season tour of the United States.

Sterling becomes the first men’s signing of the Todd Boehly era at Chelsea and could soon be joined by Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, who has agreed a four-year deal and will undergo a medical on Thursday ahead of a potential £32m move.

Anyone of a Chelsea persuasion will hope not to linger too long on the Blues’ 4-0 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday evening. Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Albert Sambi Lokonga ensured Chelsea’s tour of the USA ended on a sour note with Thomas Tuchel’s side unable to build on their opening victory over Club America.

Chelsea were simply not at the same level as Arsenal on Saturday evening. From the moment Raheem Sterling clattered into Gabriel Jesus within the first minute it showed the Blues were not quite reacting quickly enough to assert their presence on the match.

Conor Gallagher gave away numerous fouls in the opening stages while Chelsea could not string together a set of passes to launch a true attack and more frequently put themselves in a vulnerable position. Trevoh Chalobah’s misplaced pass was backed up by another from Edouard Mendy as the Blues became the suppliers for Arsenal’s best attacks as the Gunners went 2-0 up.

Raheem Sterling remains the most impressive player in Chelsea’s attack, Sterling was leading all things good for Tuchel’s side. A lovely bit of play on the right hand-side saw him perform a couple of step-overs before finding Mount, who hit the post.
