Madrid players get €1.5 million each for Champions League victory
Real Madrid’s players had a historic night in Cardiff when they defeated Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League final. They also had a very lucrative one.
But as it turns out, the squad will earn more than just historic silverware for their efforts, as Marca reports the squad negotiated some very lucrative bonus payouts.
The Spanish publication reported before the final the Madrid players demanded an individual payout of €1.5 million if they managed win both La Liga and the Champions League, which the club accepted.
Last year’s payout was a mere €700,000, plus another €100,000 for a Camp Nou Clasico win, meaning the squad nearly doubled their haul as they returned to the Champions League summit for the second straight year.
