Anthony Martial became the world’s most expensive teenager when he signed for Manchester United.

Reports said the young French international cost United around £36m.

Le Figaro have leaked official transfer papers between the Ligue 1 club and the Red Devils and it shows just how much Martial could come to cost them after add-ons.

Over the course of the season the papers show United agreed to pay €50m (£38m) for the star.

But they will have to stump up another €10m (£7.6m) if he 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.
