Chelsea star Cole Palmer’s international call-up set to hand £2.5m to Manchester City
Chelsea superstar Cole Palmer’s heroic performances have convinced England manager Gareth Southgate to call the forward for the November matches.
As per the Sun, His call-up is also set to see Manchester City earn a decent profit after the club inserted a clause when the Blues signed last summer. The Blues are set to give City £2.5 million, while the rest of the fee is likely to be performance-related, such as goals and trophy wins.
The 21-year-old has instantly become a favourite at Stamford Bridge and is now a regular starter for the Blues. He has now scored four goals for the West Londoners.
His performance on Sunday against his former team, which saw both teams end in a 4–4 draw, appears to have influenced Southgate to give him an opportunity with the senior national team.
Palmer joined Chelsea after a lack of game time at City, and it might be one of his best decisions as it has paid off and he has immediately become our important player.
Mauricio Pochettino has been delighted with the 21-year-old’s performance and heaped praise on his display against Manchester City. The forward has created 14 chances since joining City with four goals and two assists.
The fact that he adapted to Chelsea so quickly and that his performance speaks for itself merits the call-up to the senior national team. He will undoubtedly play a significant part in the near future. Chelsea have acquired a gem from Manchester City in him due to his adaptability, which only makes him better.

Even so, Southgate already has a wealth of choices in midfield and on the right side of the field for the two games that will occur. However, since they have already qualified for Euro 2024, perhaps Southgate will offer Palmer more playing time. If he keeps up his exceptional play, we might see Palmer selected for the Euro the following year.
