Manchester City did something they usually don’t do when they sold Cole Palmer to Chelsea.

The Citizens sold Palmer for a reported £42.3m in the summer transfer window after Pep Guardiola failed to convince him to stay.

Palmer has quickly gone on to establish himself as a key player under Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea, starting every match for the Blues since his deadline day move to Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola will however be regretting the decision now, especially after the 21-year-old scored a late penalty to deny them three points during their visit to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, November 12.

Even worse for Man City is the fact that they won’t be getting any money from Chelsea should the Blues decide to sell Palmer to another club in the future.

This is according to The Mail, who are reporting that Man City failed to include a sell-on clause in the Palmer deal when they sold.

It’s not in City’s style to make such a mistake after they did so with the sales of Jadon Sancho, Romeo Lavia and Pedro Porro, but of course, their loss is Chelsea’s gain, and Todd Boehly will be happy he was able to pull the deal off like he did.
