Manchester United will have to pay Real Madrid £4 million if Angel di Maria wins the Ballon d’Or while playing for the club in the Premier League.

The clause was included by Real Madrid and Di Maria’s representatives and is the most remarkable thing in Di Maria’s contract who moved to Old Trafford for a British record £59.7 million last month. United though are thought to happy with the clause because in case he goes on to win the best player in the world award, that would mean that United would be on their way to achieving success again. 

The news comes one day after Di Maria claimed Real Madrid sent him a letter a few hours before the World Cup final asking him not to play against Germany so that he remained fit ahead of a potential move, a match which the South American team went on to lose 1-0 in extra time.

The 26-year-old claims that we was forced out of the club despite President Perez Florentino claiming that the club couldn’t reach an agreement with the player because of his high wage demands.
