RAHEEM STERLING is awaiting the full results of his medical exam before connecting with his new teammates in the United States.
The England international was tested in London today before sealing a £50m move from Manchester City.
If he gives the green light, Sterling, 27, will fly to Los Angeles to meet the rest of his team.
Thomas Tuchel and co flew across the pond on Saturday to start their pre-season tour – minus N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek due to their Covid-19 vaccination status.
Sterling has agreed a £300,000-a-week deal to return to London after leaving QPR academy as a teenager to join Liverpool.
He will be offered for an initial fee of $47.5 million.
The forward arrives at Stamford Bridge with four Premier League winners’ medals under his belt and plenty of experience.
Sterling will be the first signing under new Stamford Bridge owner Todd Boehly and is a major coup for Chelsea.
Sterling and the rest of the squad will meet Boehly during their training camp in LA.
They will then take a short trip to Las Vegas for the opening summer friendly against Club America in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The Blues have reportedly already agreed personal terms with Ake over a move.
