According to Josep Pedrerol, Real Madrid have earned €13 million by qualifying for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Liverpool

Los Blancos coasted through their round of 16 tie against Liverpool with ease, recording a 6-2 scoreline on aggregate. The second leg played last night at the Santiago Bernabeu last night saw the Merengues come out on top by a solitary goal courtesy of Karim Benzema.

The reward for qualifying to the last eight adds to the club’s already massive €55 million in prize money so far this season. Needless to say, a massive chunk of that figure has been through the UEFA Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side were given €15.6 million for their mere participation in the European competition. Accounting for a further €2.8 million and €930,000 for wins and draws in the group stage respectively, the figure rose to €27.9 million.

Qualification to the Round of 16 earned the defending champions €9.6 million. That, coupled with the €13 million reward for the win over Liverpool takes the UCL prize money to over €50 million.

In addition to their paychecks in Europe, Real Madrid have already received €4.5 million, €6 million and €7 million for their achievements in the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and Spanish Super Cup respectively.

All in all, the men in white have earned a whopping €68 million only through prize and participation money.

Given that the team is still alive in the Copa del Rey, La Liga, and the Champions League, the figure could well go on to reach the €100 million mark by the end of the season. After all, the incentives and rewards increase steeply in Europe from the quarterfinal stage.

Reaching the semifinal of the competition will yield the club a reported €12.5 million, and the figure reaches €15.5 million for the finalists. The eventual winner is given an extra €4.5 million.

Real Madrid will offer a three-year deal to midfielder, but player wants assurances over role

Dani Ceballos is one of seven Real Madrid players who is set to become a free agent in the summer as his contract expires at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has grown in prominence at the Santiago Bernabeu in the second half of the season and has insisted that he wishes to continue at the club beyond the current campaign. However, he is yet to be contacted by the club with an offer to renew him.

Now, though, Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid do indeed want to keep hold of Ceballos beyond the summer and are planning to offer him a three-year contract.

The Spanish international prioritises continuing at the Santiago Bernabeu and will happily sign a renewal as long as he is offered a more prominent role in the team.

Ceballos reportedly fears that he would be reduced to the role of a benchwarmer should Jude Bellingham arrive at Real Madrid in the summer, especially with the club likely to renew Toni Kroos and Luka Modric as well.

Hence, the 26-year-old wants to be assured about his role in the team before he commits his future to Real Madrid.

As for the offer itself, Los Blancos have not presented a formal proposal as of yet and will only do so at the end of the season.

It should give ample time for Ceballos to get proper clarity over his situation and make an informed decision on continuing at Real Madrid or looking at a new challenge elsewhere.

Should he decide to move on, it is believed that the former Real Betis ace has several offers from important clubs across Europe.
