Chelsea were going to pay 35M.
He continued to sulk through to Christmas and we let him leave in the Jan window. But then he only had 6 months left on his contract and we only got 15M for him.
So his flouncing about and sulking cost us 20M.
At least that's how I remember it.
He was great around 2014-15 in Martinez's first season, but I think he's past his best now.
A bit of 'thicko' too in Blackadder parlance.
