Sturridge Tribunal Concluded

Sturridge Tribunal Concluded

The compensation fee for Manchester City academy graduate Daniel Sturridge's move to Chelsea has finally been concluded, with the London club paying considerably more than they had hoped.

Chelsea were ordered by a Premier League tribunal to pay Manchester City £3.5m, rising to a possible £6.5m for their role in the strikers development.

City had been looking for a figure around the £9m mark after Roman Abramovich snapped up the ambitious youngster last summer after his contract expired, the club refusing to adhere to his rediculous wage demands.

Abramovich was willing to pay a maximum of £3m for him but the tribunal agreed on a fee closer to City's demands, the recent cases of Theo Walcott and Fraizer Campbell working in their favour.

According to reports, the initial £3.5m payment will be increased based on appearances for both club and country.

At least we have received a fair price along with the possibility of more so this finally draws a line under this long running saga. I wonder what they think about this ruling over on Vital Chelsea?

It's 500k every 10 games (up to 40 max) and a million for 1 england cap. So assuming he sees out his contract gets an England cap and plays 40 times... the total cost including wages is 18.5 million. Bargain bosman that.

ten men - it's £6.5 after 40 games + another £1m if he gets an England cap = £7.5m plus as the media love doing these days, add on salary for his contract years and bingo 'Goat' has the correct answer of £18.5m.

Sorry my bad maths it should read £5.5m + £1m + £12m wages = still £18.5m
