Chelsea have been linked with a move for Manchester City star Raheem Sterling, and a transfer is believed to be imminent.

It is believed that Sterling himself is interested in signing for Chelsea, as his place in Pep Guardiola’s squad next season is uncertain, following new additions to Man City’s attack.

Man City paid around £49m to sign Sterling from Liverpool ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, but the 27-year-old is deemed as expendable, with just a year left on his contract.

The Englishman has won the Premier League four times as a City player, scoring 131 goals in 339 appearances across all competitions.

With Chelsea edging closer to signing Sterling, former Man City goalkeeper Shay Given, has claimed that it’s a deal that could come back and bite Pep Guardiola.

Given still rates Sterling as a top player who wouldn’t be happy with his situation at the Etihad over the past few months.

“He’s a top player, but for whatever reason in the last 12 or 18 months him and Pep, have not fallen out, but he’s just not started every game,” Given told talkSPORT.

“Sterling is a player that strikes me that would not be happy coming off the bench and being a bit-part player in the last six or seven months.

“Will he come back and bite Pep, maybe? That’s the thing from a City point of view, do you think he will come back and score a goal towards the end of the season that wins the league for Chelsea.

“He’s a top player, but with 12 months left £50million is still a lot of money. With the Financial Fair Play, City have to balance the books and they are still trying to bring in players as well.

“It might fit well for both clubs.”
