Trevor Sinclair warns Raheem Sterling not to join Chelsea

While Chelsea are said to be firm favourites to sign Sterling, Sinclair believes the City ace would be making a fatal mistake to move to Stamford Bridge.

According to Sinclair, Thomas Tuchel's side does not stand a chance to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

"I would say no because I don’t think Chelsea will be competitive with Man City and Liverpool next season," Sinclair told talkSPORT about Sterling's potential move to Stamford Bridge.
"They’ve lost players, the club is in a transitional phase where they’ve lost a lot of players and they’ve got to do a lot of rebuilding," he added.
