The Real Fee Manchester City Paid For Elaquim Mangala Has Been Revealed

The Real Fee Manchester City Paid For Elaquim Mangala Has Been Revealed

Elaquim Mangala has endured a difficult first 18 months at Manchester City and has constantly come under fire for his calamitous performances, especially in the absence of captain Vincent Kompany.

Mangala has of course not been alone in receiving criticism for his poor defensive displays, with fellow big money centre half Nicolas Otamendi failing to impress since arriving from Valencia for £36m in the Summer. However, if City fans have been outraged at the performances of their £32m French defender since his arrival from Porto, they probably won't be too chuffed to discover that he's actually cost them substantially more than that originally reported fee.

Footy Leaks have got hold of Mangala's transfer contract which reveals that Porto actually only owned 56.67% of Mangala's economic rights, with the Doyen Investment Group owning 33.33% and the remaining 10% being owned by a German company.

What this means is that, instead of paying £32m for Mangala, City in fact paid £41.4m in total, when fees paid to Doyen and the German company are accounted for.
