Real Madrid President Increases Incentive For Winning Champions League Title This Season
Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez met with team captains Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos to let them know the incentives to win the Champions League this season had increased to €500,000 net of taxes ($666,500), according to PUNTO PELOTA. With La Liga "looking like mission impossible," Real Madrid is focusing on the Champions League more than ever. Each player was originally supposed to receive €360,000 ($480,000) if the team was able to win Europe's top club competition, but Pérez has decided to increase the sum (PUNTO PELOTA, 1/23). ECODIARIO noted the amount for winning La Liga and the Copa del Rey had not changed. The players will still receive €350,000 ($466,000) net of taxes if they can come back and win La Liga, and €125,000 ($167,000) for the Copa del Rey (ECODIARIO, 1/23).
