Sterling's typical determination and drive
With Premier League title number four added to his collection last season and his overall game constantly improving, Raheem Sterling’s imminent move to Chelsea is one that has raised some eyebrows.
Many would expect a key component of a prolific title-winning team to stay put, but Sterling is built differently. At the age of 27, Raheem is truly living the dream. Ten years into his professional career, we are talking about a player who already deserves to be mentioned in any conversation about the best British players ever. He was the 17-year-old boy wonder at Liverpool, the one who dared to dream at City. Now, at Chelsea, he has an opportunity to be the main man.
While there is reason for excitement over such a massive move, there is an elephant in the room that many believe needs to be discussed.
Mayowa Quadri believes Sterling returning to where he was racially abused is typical of his determination and drive.

Man Utd to miss out on Brobbey
The Manchester Evening News reports that Manchester United expect transfer target Brian Brobbey to sign for Ajax rather than moving to Old Trafford.
Brobbey scored seven goals in 11 league appearances for Ajax last season, having joined the Dutch champions on loan from German club RB Leipzig.
It’s now thought that the 20-year-old Dutchman will make his move to Amsterdam permanent.
Gareth Bale hailed the “incredible reception” he received after being presented to the Los Angeles FC fans for the first time since his move to the MLS leaders.

The Wales international will be hoping for plenty of game time ahead of the World Cup later this year, and what will be the Dragons’ first appearance at the finals since 1958.
Bale arrived in California on Friday and received a rapturous reception at the Banc of California Stadium when he was paraded to the supporters ahead of his new side’s ‘El Trafico’ derby against rivals LA Galaxy.
Cristiano Ronaldo unwanted by Tuchel
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel isn’t on board with the Blues' interest in wantaway Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo, reports the Daily Mail.

Cristiano has told United he wants the club to listen to offers for him this summer, just a year after he returned to Old Trafford. The Portuguese is currently absent from the Red Devils’ preseason tour of Malaysia, albeit the club maintains he has stayed behind for family reasons.

"Synonymous with goalscorers, the No.9 is iconic at City and has previously been worn by hugely popular figures such as Francis Lee, Brian Kidd, Joe Royle, Trevor Francis, Paul Dickov, Niall Quinn and Paulo Wanchope," the club said, in a quote that's a gentle reminder, if you needed one, that the Sky Blues haven't always led the way in England.
