Raheem Sterling underwent his Chelsea medical on Sunday and will meet his new Chelsea team-mates in the US early next week

If given the all-clear, Sterling, 27 will fly to Los Angeles to meet the rest of his squad.

Thomas Tuchel and Co jetted across the pond on Saturday to begin their pre-season tour - minus N'Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek due to their Covid-19 vaccination status.

Sterling has agreed a £300,000-a-week deal to move back to London after first leaving QPR's Academy as a teenager to join Liverpool.

He will join for an initial fee of £47.5million, with £2.5m in add-ons, on a five-year deal which has a further 12-month option.

The forward arrives at Stamford Bridge with four Premier League winners' medals in his pockets and plenty of experience.

Sterling will be the first signing under new Stamford Bridge owner Todd Boehly and is a major coup for Chelsea.

Sterling and the rest of the squad are set to meet Boehly during their LA training camp.

They will then make a short trip to Las Vegas for the opening summer friendly against Club America in the early hours of Sunday.

Chelsea, meanwhile, hope to agree terms with City for defender Nathan Ake.

Reports suggest the Blues have already agreed personal terms with Ake over a move.

Tuchel is desperate to bolster his backline having seen Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen depart as free agents this summer.
