Bradford City are reportedly requesting a cash windfall from Manchester United after Tom Cleverley spent a season on loan with Wigan.

According to The Sun, Bradford have been offered £50,000 by the Barclays Premier League champions to ease their concerns, with the Bantams entitled to 10 percent of money United make from Cleverley, with the midfielder having been nurtured in the Bantams' academy.

Cleverley, 21, left Valley Parade for Old Trafford in 2005 and, within the last year, has dramatically enhanced his reputation having spend the entirety of last season with Wigan.

A fine pre-season for United culminated in a call-up to the England squad, although Cleverley was left disappointed after the friendly with Holland was postponed.


Sir Alex Ferguson has already shown plenty of faith in the youngster, having put him on during the Community Shield victory against Manchester City, and Cleverley is likely to feature reasonably frequently for United this season.

Many onlookers have suggested Cleverley could be a long-term successor for Paul Scholes, who lowered the curtain on his illustrious Old Trafford at the end of the last campaign.
