De Gea Madrid contract ‘leaked’

A copy of the Real Madrid contract intended for Manchester United’s David De Gea has been revealed by Football Leaks.

The website, which also shared details of Gareth Bale’s move from Tottenham Hotspur to Madrid, posted the document on Tuesday.

De Gea would have received more than €12m-a-year at Santiago Bernabeu, part  of which would have been paid in bonuses, had his transfer from Old Trafford gone through.

The Spain international was in dispute with United throughout summer 2015 as he wanted to move to Madrid, only for the deal to collapse on transfer deadline day as the window closed before the documents had been filed with FIFA.

AS put the signing fee for the goalkeeper at almost €11m, and when his wages are taken into account, De Gea would have cost Madrid some €86m.

The contract also says De Gea would have been liable for €500m in compensation if he was to terminate his Madrid contract.

Both AS and Sport report the De Gea-Madrid contract, which would have run until 2021 had it been executed.
