Man Utd ordered to cough up Cleverley fee to Bradford

Manchester United will have to cough up to Bradford City for the signing of Tom Cleverley.

Manchester United will have to cough up to Bradford City for the signing of Tom Cleverley.

The Sun says the League Two strugglers, who lie 89th in the football pyramid, argued they were due fees totalling over £100,000 for Cleverley's loan moves.

The midfield star, 22, who has been included in the England squad, left Bradford for United when he was 12.

A clause in the contract stated Bradford would be paid 10 per cent of fees whenever Cleverley's registration was transferred.

United argued the agreement only applied to a permanent transfer but Bradford claimed it applied to loans too and the clubs have now settled.
