Raheem Sterling said his new club Chelsea feel “tailor-made” for him due to the progress they have made under manager Thomas Tuchel and because going there gives him the chance to reconnect with his London roots.

The England forward, 27, joined from Premier League champions Manchester City last month, becoming Chelsea’s first signing under new ownership led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.

“I had a few options but this was the one that was tailor-made for my personal goals. It made a lot of sense for my family and with the direction of the club,” Sterling told reporters on Thursday.

“They have been in four or five finals in the last few years. It shows they are competing and are only going up so with the new owners in, it all made sense.”

Sterling, who grew up in north west London, moved to Liverpool’s academy from Queens Park Rangers in 2010 as a 15-year-old and started his senior career in Merseyside before switching to City in 2015.
