    Wiki says
    The initial fee of £23m is to be paid directly to Everton Football Club over two years; the rest of the money depends on appearances and/or success at Manchester United and/or England. It is unlikely the fee will reach the maximum £27m due to the complex nature of the contract drawn up by the two clubs. A final fee in the region of £25m plus costs (mainly agents' fees) is more likely. In the club's 2004-05 accounts, Rooney's contract is recorded as having a book cost of £25.066 million as at 30 June 2005, with contingent payables of £4 million, giving a maximum final fee of £29.066 million including costs.

    Is it Norman Whiteside's record?

    The country who took this record have already been eliminated.

    Well, Trinidad is the smallest nation to ever play at the World Cup, so if that's the answer then maybe they took it from Northern ireland.

    This is just guesswork mind you!

    Spot on. Fair play, I thought that might've lasted longer than that.

    Your turn.
