€10m (£7.7m) if the player scores 25 first-team goals for Manchester United, €10m (£7.7m) if Martial makes 25 appearances for the French national team

these 2 are pretty likely desu
ballon d'or nomination a bit unlikely

the weirdest one imo is the sell-on clause. 50% of a sale go to monaco if the transfer fee is between 60-100mil euros. it forces united to sell for under 60mil if they ever do need to sell him, while if he actually turns out to be GOAT 60mil euros isn't that much so they'll suffer a lot

The term "gitano" comes from "egipcio", a Spanish term for "Egyptian"[5] as the English word "Gypsy" comes from "Egyptian". Both terms are due to a medieval belief that the Romani people came from Egypt.

The problem that City has to face right now is that every agent in existence will try to overcharge them over average players because they know City has money to spend.
They need to step up their academy graduates game or they'll suffer with those mediocre, overpaid players for a long time.
