It`s being reported that the deal to take Daniel Sturridge to Liverpool is all but concluded.

Apparently Sturridge has had a medical and his salary has been agreed, all that`s left is for the fee to be announced.

However, it appears that whatever fee we receive will be seriously eroded.

For starters, following his arrival at Stamford Bridge from Manchester City, it was decreed that Manchester City would get 15% of any sell-on fee.

Also, because Sturridge never actually asked for a transfer he is entitled, so the tabloid press are saying, to have the remainder of his contract paid up, a cool £1.5 million.

So whatever we get from Liverpool, I reckon we`ll actually bank less than £10 million!
