Martial Scores, United Pays Monaco

Manchester United will pay AS Monaco a further £8.4m after Anthony Martial’s goal in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Burnley, according to a report.

Martial, 20 who joined Manchester United from Monaco in 2015 for an initial fee of £36m, scored his 25th goal for the club against the Clarets.

According to Sky Sports News, who cite a reportedly leaked document, Martial’s goal at Turf Moor triggers a clause which requires United to pay the additional instalment.

United will also reportedly be required to pay further instalments of £8.4m (€10m) if he reaches 25 caps for France or if he is ever nominated for the Ballon d’Or award.

It is also said that there is a sell-on clause inserted in the deal, with Monaco due to be paid 50 percent of any transfer fee between £50m (€60m) and £84 (€100m) United receive for the player.

 Martial’s goal against Burnley was his eighth of the season in all competitions.
