Manchester City will pay Tottenham £1.5 million following their Premier League title win as part of the deal that saw Kyle Walker join Pep Guardiola’s side, according to the Times.

Walker moved to City for a fee in the region of £54 million last summer, a total that included performance–related add-ons.

The Times claims one of those add-ons was a £1.5 million payment if City won the Premier League, which they achieved on Sunday.

The champions secured a 3-1 victory against Spurs at Wembley on Saturday night before Manchester United’s 2-1 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion handed the title to City on Sunday.

Walker has been a key part of City’s title-winning side, making 30 league appearances this season.

The 27-year-old spent eight seasons at Spurs before Guardiola came calling last summer, an opportunity Walker couldn’t turn down.

Tottenham face Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, and Walker desperately wants his former teammates to win the trophy this season.

Liverpool and Schalke are also set to receive payments from City in similar deals regarding Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane.
