Yesterday it was announced that Wilfried Zaha is leaving Manchester United and returns to Crystal Palace, the club he was bought to United from.
Sir Alex Ferguson paid around ten million pounds to retrieve Zaha in 2013, but the transfer could be worth as much as 15 million pounds if various criteria were met. These criteria, however, probably were not effective.
Since Zaha made its debut for the England national team during his era in United, it is expected that the club had to pay around one million pounds extra for the player, in addition to the ten million who were paid for the talent by Ferguson.
On Monday the attacker was sold for around three million pounds, which means that the Old Trafford club has lost around eight million pounds on the transfer.
In addition, the big club paid the salary for the youngster, even when he was out on loan. It corresponds to 35,000 pounds per week, according to Express.
Zaha had two appearances for United in the Premier League. He came on as a substitute in matches against Newcastle and Aston Villa. He played a total of 28 minutes, which corresponds to £400,000 a minute on the pitch.
