Raheem Sterling won't help Chelsea bridge the gap

Chelsea are close to signing Raheem Sterling this summer.

The Blues will be paying a hefty £45m fee for the England international who still has a year left on his contract with Manchester City.

His inclusion is expected to add a new dimension to the squad but he won’t be a game-changing signing for Thomas Tuchel.

This is according to Simon Jordan who claims he never truly excelled with Manchester City.

Jordan said on talkSPORT: “On paper, because of the name and because of where he is coming from and who he is going to and what state Chelsea are at due to the new ownership model and post-Abramovich, it looks like a really big statement signing.

“I personally don’t think it is.

“I don’t think it is going to be the missing piece to bridge the gap between where Chelsea are and where they want to be.

“I don’t think he excelled with Manchester City, I think he did okay with Manchester City.

“No one would say Raheem Sterling is not a good player, but I don’t think he does enough.”
