‘Let’s make history together’ – Raheem Sterling ‘can’t wait to get started’ after completing £50m transfer to Chelsea

RAHEEM STERLING “can’t wait to get started” at Chelsea as the £50million newcomer roared: “Let’s make history together.”

The first signing of owner Todd Boehly’s era says “London is my home” as he switched from champions Manchester City on a five-year deal.

It’s smiles better for Raheem Sterling as he eyes more regular starts for new club Chelsea than he got in his last season at Man City

Raheem Sterling is back where it all started for him – London

Sterling completed his medical in the capital before flying to Los Angeles’ for Chelsea’s pre-season tour.

The England attacker, 27, moved on to seek more regular starts after an Etihad bench role for much of last season.

And on Chelsea’s Instagram account he claimed: “So glad to be a Chelsea player right now. 

“Honestly can’t wait to get started and yeah, let’s make history together.”

And in his first public comments he suggested he is keen to play under ex-PSG chief Thomas Tuchel.

Sterling said: “First and foremost, it’s a pleasure to be here.

 I’ve obviously achieved a lot in my career so far, but there is still so much more to achieve.

“I’m really looking forward to doing that in a Chelsea shirt under Thomas’s management.

“London is my home and where it all started for me, and it’s amazing I now have the opportunity to play in front of friends and family week in, week out at Stamford Bridge. 

“I’m really looking forward to meeting the fans there soon.”

Sterling, though, spoke out four years ago after receiving abuse from home supporters at Stamford Bridge.

He said then: “You can see by my reaction I just had to laugh because I don’t expect no better.”

The “deeply ashamed” fan who screamed at Sterling denied he was being racist, saying: “I didn’t call him a black c***, I called him a Manc c***.”
