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
Arsenal  £3,135,483
West Ham United  £2,691,331
Tottenham Hotspur £2,562,853
