Chelsea Players Will Take Home A Bonus Of £11m Group Bonus If They Win Cup Double


Chelsea players will take home a group bonus of £11million if they win the Champions League and FA Cup.

Thomas Tuchel’s side reached the Champions League final by beating Real Madrid 3-1 over two legs.

They’re due to face Manchester City in Istanbul, although the venue looks increasingly likely to be changed to the UK.

The Blues will also play Leicester City in the FA Cup final on May 15.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea players will receive £5million if they beat City later this month.

They will then get another £1million for overcoming Leicester, having already received £5million for the Champions League semi-final win.

Chelsea’s bonus system means all players who feature in a match-day squad get rewarded.

They look set to receive around £500,000 each.

City run their bonus system slightly differently. They negotiate individual bonuses for each player, and as such will be liable to pay out £15million if they win Europe’s elite competition for the first time.

For Pep Guardiola’s men, the top earners have £1million bonus clauses written into their huge contracts. Others have clauses worth £600,000, while fringe players will earn significantly less.

Whichever club triumphs on May 29 will benefit greatly through prize money. That stands at around £100million, including UEFA’s £16.5million hand-out for winning, plus broadcast revenue.

Such a big sum would help both teams in their summer transfer pursuits.

They’ve both been linked with Dortmund star Erling Haaland, who could cost up to £150million in the coming months.

He’s been touted as Sergio Aguero‘s long-term successor at the Etihad. Chelsea, meanwhile, might not need him if Kai Havertz continues to impress.

Chelsea boss Tuchel will soon outline his transfer plans to make the squad his own. Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri are nearing the exit door after falling behind Ben Chilwell in the Stamford Bridge pecking order.

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele heightened rumours of a Premier League move by praising Tuchel recently.

He said: “Tuchel really convinced me, he is my favourite manager.

“With Tuchel I played a bit more on the right side at the beginning of the season, and then I was moved more centrally, in the 10 position, sometimes even in the midfield three you see.

“And he told me to stay a bit more central, have an espresso as he used to say to me, the ball will come to you and then you will go.”
