True cost of Memphis Depay revealed

Dutch winger hasn't repaid fee with displays

The true cost for Manchester United of signing Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven has been revealed by the Football Leaks website.

The actual cost of last year's Eredivisie Golden Boot winner is several million more than the price originally flagged in the media with the potential for several additional performance-related payments although after a disappointing opening season at Old Trafford, the odds on those extra payments needing to be made are low.

The Football Leaks website has revealed United agreed a fee of £26.7m for the 21-year-old before bonuses with United paying an initial fee of £13.35m, with a further payment of £6.6m in January and the same amount to be paid to the Dutch club in the summer.

However, the fee could rise to as much as £34m if certain targets are reached.

If United were to reach the semi-final stage of the Champions League up to and including the 2019/20 season, they would have to pay PSV a further £255,000.

If the final was reached the figure would rise to £510,000 and £1million if they were to win the trophy in that time.

Winning the Premier League up to 2020 would also follow the same bonus structure.

United will also pay PSV almost £4m, or 10 percent of the profit, should Memphis be sold on before the summer 2020.
