    Hasselbaink told Sky Sports: "They need a goalscorer. Sterling’s a great player, a very good player but he’s not an out-and-out No.9.

    Good morning Chelsea fans

    Manchester City ace Raheem Sterling has reportedly agreed personal terms with Chelsea.

    According to Sky Sports, a fee for Sterling is expected to soon be confirmed with City.

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims the final fee will be around £45million.

    Romano added that the forward will be among the Blues’ best paid players in the upcoming season.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea have made a transfer bid for Sporting Lisbon ace Matheus Nunes.

    The Blues' boss Thomas Tuchel has focused on repairing his decimated defence after losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

    The West Londoners are haggling over the price of Juventus' Matthijs De Ligt and Sevilla's Jules Kounde.

    But it seems like Tuchel also wants to add reinforcement in midfield and that is why the club has turned its focus on £42.8m-rated Nunes.

    That's according to A Bola, who report Chelsea hope an initial bid of £38.6m, plus £4.2m in add-ons, will be enough to entice the Lisbon giants into letting him leave.

    And Chelsea transfer target De Ligt has his heart set on joining Bayern Munich but Juventus’ asking price could scupper the move.

    The centre-back has been heavily linked with a summer exit from Juve after admitting he may reject a new contract offer.

    That is according to Bild’s Christian Falk, who reports that the Netherlands international wants to sign for Bayern but the club may not be able to afford him.

    Falk tweeted: “Matthijs de Ligt told @juventusfc that he wants a transfer to @FCBayern. Juve and Bayern are now in contact. But: Bayern won‘t pay the requested amount of €70m.”

    He added: “@FCBayern know that @ChelseaFC is also interested in Matthijs de Ligt and Chelsea can offer a higher transfer-fee.

    “But Bayern know that the player would prefer to move to Munich if the clubs can agree on a deal.”

    Finally, Manchester United star and Chelsea target Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t show up for a third time after announcing his desire to leave.

    Ronaldo has been allowed extra time off by United due to family reasons.

    The star forward was initially due back on Monday along with the rest of the players who were given additional time off after international duty.

    The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is nowhere to be seen for the third day in a row.

    The Portugal captain has since been practicing at his country’s national training ground in Lisbon

    "He's a fantastic player, he's also a consistent performer and someone who has done it over the years in the Premier League.

    "So, for Man City to be wanting to or happy to get rid of him, that shocks me.

    "But as we know, they've got an abundance of depth in them areas of the pitch. If he goes, then they've got someone of great quality to come in and take his place"
