Sinclair could have been a Robin
City boss Keith Millen has lifted the lid on how City tried and failed to sign Scott Sinclair from Chelsea in the summer.
The Bath-born winger was a target for former City manager Steve Coppell in the summer but was quoted £2-million by Chelsea, his club at the time.
City baulked at the asking price while former Stamford Bridge youth team manager Brendan Rogers, now in charge at the Liberty Stadium, managed to talk the Blues into parting with Sinclair for a bargain £500,000.
"Had they offered him to us for that kind of price, then he would probably be a Bristol City player now," Millen told the Bristol Evening Post.
"But we spoke to Chelsea on a couple of occasions and they were asking silly money. Their valuation was way beyond what we could afford, so we went out and bought Albert Adomah instead."
