Manchester City have slapped a £10 million price-tag on new Chelsea signing Danny Sturridge.
The News of the World says City go head-to-head with Chelsea at a transfer tribunal later this month over Sturridge's controversial departure.
Sturridge, who was 20 on Tuesday, quit Eastlands at the end of last season after snubbing several lucrative contract offers.
Instead, he signed a four-year deal with Chelsea worth £65,000 a week.
And City base their claim on his enormous salary.
