Chelsea to sell TWO stars to fund £50m move for Sterling – report

Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for South American duo Oscar and Juan Cuadrado this summer in order to fund a move for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, according to the Daily Star.

Sterling is being chased by some of the world’s top clubs as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal have been strongly linked with the contract rebel, but Jose Mourinho is also keeping tabs.

Chelsea need to sign English players this summer to meet the quota for homegrown players and the Blues clearly see Sterling as the best available English player.

Sterling is looking likely to leave the Reds as he has yet to agree on a new contract and was booed by the club’s fans when receiving the Young Player of the Year award last night.

Oscar has been linked with a move away from the club because he would allow Mourinho to spend big alongside Financial Fair Play rules, but Cuadrado could also exit after just five months.

The Colombian winger has only made three starts since joining for £26 million from Fiorentina in January and could be offloaded straight away to fund a move for Sterling.

The Liverpool ace is valued at £50 million and Chelsea will have to battle with Arsenal and City if they want to lure him to Stamford Bridge in the coming months.

Would Chelsea be silly to let Oscar and Cuadrado leave to sign Sterling?
