Raheem Sterling has revealed his primary reasons for joining Chelsea from Premier League champions Manchester City.

The 27-year-old joined the Blues in a deal worth £47.5m, penning a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge after a trophy-laden spell in Manchester.

Eyebrows were raised that Sterling would choose to walk away from working with Pep Guardiola, who has led City to four Premier League titles in the last five seasons, but the England international had seen his game time marginalised over the last 12 months.

Sterling did still feature in 30 Premier League games, scoring 13 times, and played a further 17 matches in all competitions. However, he clocked up just 2,128 minutes in the top flight and 23 starts - comfortably the lowest since his first season at City.
