Manchester United could still end up paying millions for Anthony Martial if a number of add-ons are met.
The France international was signed from Monaco in 2015 at the age of 19 for a record-breaking amount for a teenager at the time, worth a reported £36m at the time.
But details have been revealed that show that United have further payments to make over the move.
In official papers released by Le Figaro, the full contract drafted up between United and Monaco has been leaked.
It shows that the fee was actually £38m (€50m) for the Frenchman, made over the course of the season.
But they will have to stump up another €10m (£7.6m) if the 25-year-old scores 25 league goals, €10m if he wins 25 caps for France and €10m if he is nominated for the Ballon d’Or award.
That could total upwards of £60m.
The contract details that if United sell Martial for over £45m, Monaco are entitled to half of the profit made above that total.
