Anthony Martial‘s contract with Manchester United has reportedly been leaked and spread across both the English and British press.
It reveals full details of his move to Man United from AS Monaco and discusses the separate clauses which are attached to him, including a €10m pay-out were he to be nominated for the Ballon d’Or.
As detailed in the contract, United will initially pay €50m for Martial spread across two instalments which will finish in June 2016.
There are separate clauses inside the deal which will see Monaco get €10m if he scored 25 goals in one season for United in competitive matches and a further €10m if he competes in 25 matches for France.
The final clause relates to another €10m which would be paid to Monaco if Martial was nominated for the Ballon d’Or. If he were to meet all three of those clause, Martial would end up costing United a total of €80m, which would make him our most expensive signing ever were it to happen (and us not sign a player in excess of that).
Here is the part of the contract which relates to how much United will initially pay for Martial: “As for the permanent transfer of the player, MUFC shall pay to AS MONACO the whole amount of €50,000,000.00 (fifty million euros) as follows:
“a) €20,000,000 (twenty million euros) within three business days following the Player being registered with, and granted eligibility to play for, MUFC under the MUFC Contract by the PL and FA;
“b) €30,000,000 (thirty million euros) on 1 July 2016.”
