Stubborn Sturridge Cements Chelsea Contract

Stubborn Sturridge Cements Chelsea Contract


Budding blogger, Blue Lad Scragg sent us the following...

Chelsea has confirmed the signing of teenage striker Daniel Sturridge on a four-year contract after turning down a take it or leave it Manchester City £55,000 a week offer.

As the youngster is under the age of 24 City are entitled to compensation with the fee being decided by a tribunal. Reports suggest Chelsea may have to pay up to £10m.

Youth Academy graduate was made a laughing stock by City fans when reports surfaced that he was demanding a ridiculous £75,000 a week. When regular player Elano earns a mere £35,000 I personally say good riddance to the money driven fool. It's such a shame though as he was showing so much promise, but if he wants to leave and sit on a Stamford Bridge bench, then good luck and enjoy.

Sturridge made his full debut for City in 2007 against Reading scoring six times in 32 appearances.

Rank bad advice. "Splinters" Sturridge is going to need some cushions. Meanwhile, there is no way in this world or the next that Ancelotti has ever heard of Sturridge until now. Which begs the question, whose been running Chelsea's transfer policy throughout the past three managers? Has to be Weasel K.

Chelsea will be re-naming their bench, the 'sturridge' by the end of next season.

His agent (and uncle) Dean Sturridge is on Talksport at 2.15 today to "Put the record straight". I wait eagerly.

How much are Chelsea even paying him is the question. It must be around the 60k + a week mark. A fair bit for an injury prone unproven striker who couldn't even get into our team.

When his serious thigh injury had sidelined him for many months there was a lot of talk that City might have to give up on Sturridge, but there was tremendous support from the fans and throughout the club that meant his painstaking treatment would continue without the fear of being jettisoned. Talk about Stand By Me.
