So he basically cost us £20 million plus 6 months wages by refusing to sign for them in August. True blue my arse.

The unfortunate timing of his injury lost us the £20m more than any machiavellian masterplan.



Stop trying to make excuses for him. He's sold us down the river.

Spurs have been for a long while his destination of choice but they clearly hesitated when his hamstring went ping, Chelsea saw a late alternative to Chamberlain once he’d turned them down and made an offer that took Barkley and his agent by surprise and at which point stalled them for whatever reason (probably given the previous year long speculation about Spurs and the planning of the move) hoping they’d be back for him now. In the interim either Chelsea have become more palatable after consideration or Spurs interest has cooled given they could actually continue to wait out the final 6 months and get him for nothing in the summer.

Without his hamstring going he would have definitely been off last summer.

How about an alternative that he gets £10m out of the £2m0 they have saved as a signing fee? That's just a plausible as the story you have made up above.
