“To my team-mates who have become more than just those I share a pitch with.

“To the backroom staff, to the office staff, to the fans who have tirelessly supported the team and to everyone involved with Manchester City — my respect for you couldn’t be greater.

“What a ride it’s been. I am thankful for the ups and the downs, as it’s the ups and downs that have at times tested my strength and resolve and enabled me to stand here in front of you as the best possible version of myself.

“I arrived in Manchester a 20-year-old. Today, I leave as a man. It’s been an honour to wear the shirt of Manchester City.”

Sterling is Chelsea’s first signing under their new ownership and will look to provide firepower up front after Thomas Tuchel’s side struggled for goals last term.
