Chelsea’s players will share a bonus pot of £11million if they complete a Champions League and FA Cup double.
Thomas Tuchel’s squad have already earned aggregate bonuses of £5m for reaching the Champions League final for the third time in the club’s history and another £5m will be on the line when they face Manchester City in Istanbul on May 29.
In addition the players will split a £1m collective bonus if they beat Leicester in the FA Cup final on May 15.
Chelsea run a collective players’ pool, with all bonuses shared equally amongst members of their match-day squad, meaning each player stands to earn around £500,000 if they win the Champions League.
This approach contrasts with that favoured by City, who negotiate individual bonuses with each player when they sign their contracts at the club.
City’s overall bonus liability is also higher, with the club committed to paying out around £15m in bonuses if they win the Champions League for the first time.
