Manchester City agree big money for Shaun Wright-Phillips to move to Chelsea FC
Sunday, July 17, 2005
Chelsea FC had a bid of £20,000,000 for the England winger rejected on Friday after they finally made their interest in the player official.
Both sides have now thrashed out a fee for Wright-Phillips and the flying winger has now been given permission to open talks with Chelsea.
"As a result of Shaun's request to speak to Chelsea we have conducted a series of complex negotiations with Chelsea," City's communications chief, Paul Tyrrell.
"A fee for Shaun's transfer of £21,000,000 has been agreed and consequently we have granted his wish to talk to the other club."
Chelsea are hoping to tie up a deal with Wright-Phillips as soon as possible so that he can join them on their tour of the U.S.A next week.
