£50 million man tells club ‘he wants to leave’ ahead of massive Chelsea move

Reports have claimed Chelsea are closer to a deal for Raheem Sterling after he told Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave, according to the Mirror website.

The winger informed the Liverpool manager face to face before the 1-1 draw at Chelsea on May 10 that he wants out of Anfield.

But Sterling, 20, has agreed to further discussions with club officials in the next few days as they try to make a last-ditch attempt to persuade him to stay.

And Chelsea, who are heavily tipped to make a move, will keep a close eye as they are ready to offer him the money and chances of silverware he wants.
