In the summer of 2022, Raheem Sterling is one of the hottest Chelsea signings. Coach Tuchel highly appreciated the player born in 1994 and asked the Blues BLD to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
The English midfielder has also reached an agreement to join The Blues. He signed a five-year contract with the Blues with an automatic extension of one year, for a transfer fee of up to 55 million pounds. At Stamford Bridge, Sterling receives a salary of £ 300,000 a week, thereby surpassing Kante to become the highest-earning player.
Before moving to Chelsea, Sterling spent 7 seasons with Man City. He scored 131 goals and had 95 assists, and with The Citizens won many big and small titles, including 4 Premier League titles.
And Sterling has received assurances from Tuchel that he will have an important place at The Blues when the club will let wingers Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech leave in the next few days.

The Senegalese midfielder signed a four-year contract with “The Blues”. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said Chelsea spent 40 million euros and extra fees to complete the deal.
His salary at Stamford Bridge will be 10 million euros per year. This is The Blues’ second rookie this summer, after Raheem Sterling. Koulibaly is now in the US to join Chelsea for the 2022 summer tour. The 1991-born player is a timely addition to the Chelsea defense after they parted ways with Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
Koulibaly officially took part in Napoli from Genk in the summer of 2014. After 8 years, he played 314 matches, scored 14 goals, and won 2 trophies (Italian Super Cup 2014 and National Cup 2020).

This is the second Chelsea new signing in 2022. After a period of watching and fierce competition with Real Madrid, the team finally got the signature of Gabriel Slonina from Chicago Fire FC.
Slonina will become Chelsea’s third summer signing, following England striker Raheem Sterling and defender Kalidou Koulibaly. Gabriel Slonina is considered a promising goalkeeper of American football. That is also the reason why this team agreed to spend up to 15 million USD to bring this 18-year-old goalkeeper to Stamford Bridge to replace Kepa.
Accordingly, Slonina signed with The Blues for a 6-year contract. However, the 18-year-old will officially join Stamford Bridge in January 2023. Talking about the deal, Chicago Fire FC athletic director Georg Heitz said: “We are honored and proud to see Slonina take such an important step in her career.”
Slonina, for her part, has made 33 appearances for the Chicago Fire since joining the first team in 2021. This is considered a timely addition for Chelsea to replace goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga leaving Stamford Bridge in the summer of this year.

While being rumored with a series of expensive stars, The Blues suddenly successfully recruited young talent Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa.

The 18-year-old has been allowed to travel to London to finalize his personal terms and undergo a medical before the Chelsea signing.”
This deal happened so quickly that Chelsea fans were also surprised. Before that, there was little information about Chelsea wanting Chukwuemeka, especially when their midfield was in a state of excess.
The agreement details between the two sides were secret. However, reputable sources The Athletic claim Chelsea must spend a total of £ 20 million to win the signature of Chukwuemeka. This is not a small number for a midfielder who is only 18 years old and has only 1 year left on his contract.
