Manchester United head list of money spent on agents fees


 Football News 24/7
As Manchester United prepare to meet Everton in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final it was revealed the club has spent more than £10m on agents' fees between 1 October 2015 and 1 February 2016 to lead the latest Premier League list.

Ironically Everton who face United at Wembley are bottom of the list on £471,400.

United boss Louis van Gaal did not make any signings in January yet the club's fees are more than £3m Liverpool's amount, who are second on the list.

Premier League leaders Leicester City, who need three more wins to secure the title, spent just £936,004.

A Manchester United spokesman said the £10m figure reflected a high number of contact renego­ti­ations during the period, including with goalkeeper David de Gea, and staged payments on previous transfers.

In the Champi­onship, QPR are the only team to pay more than £1m in the four-month period.

Top six intermediary and agents' fees paid by Premier League clubs between 1 October 2015 to 1 February 2016

Manchester United  £10,023,318
Liverpool £6,672,713
Manchester City  £5,880,098
