But Burley, who made 112 appearances for the Blues, believes that his former club may as well spend extra to buy Tottenham forward Harry Kane.
"What are they saying the fee's going to be? £80million?" Burley said on ESPN FC.
"If it was me, and I don't think they would get them and they probably wouldn't, but I would go with another £20million or £10million to Tottenham and say 'give me a price for Harry Kane'."
