Chelsea was not Raheem Sterling’s priority. He dreamed of going to another club

Raheem Sterling was hoping to return to Liverpool from Manchester City last summer, according to Sam Lee of The Athletic. However, the winger eventually landed at Chelsea.

The England international has been one of the leading figures of The Citizens over the years.

With time, however, he had to lose the competition for a place in the starting lineup or not find recognition in the eyes of Pep Guardiola’s manager, which significantly hindered the player from obtaining attractive terms of the new contract.

In this situation, Raheem Sterling opened up to leaving Manchester City, which eventually ended with his move to Chelsea before the start of this season for €56.2 million.

The 28-year-old player cannot feel completely satisfied with his stay at Stamford Bridge so far, as his new team is not achieving satisfactory results and he himself is struggling with health problems.

That’s why he has recorded just six goals and three assists in 22 appearances this season.

In addition, the England international’s overall well-being may be affected by the fact that “The Blues” were not at the top of his wish list as the attacking player longed to score a return to Liverpool, where a spot in the front line was opening up after Sadio Mané left for Bayern Munich .

The deal was not even close to being completed as Sterling’s early interest in returning to Anfield, where he played from 2010 to 2015, was ruled out by manager Jürgen Klopp, who saw no place for him in his team.
