Real Madrid’s 2023/2024 season will go down in the history books, as they secured three trophies and capped off their successful campaign with a record 15th UEFA Champions League title.

The Merengues continue to be regarded as the cream of the crop in Europe and the players will be handsomely rewarded for their efforts throughout the rigorous season.

How the Real Madrid players will be rewarded

Now, Mundo Deportivo have come out to shed light on the bonuses the Los Blancos players will receive.

Securing victories in both La Liga and the Champions League will be highly rewarding. As per the report, each player will receive a substantial prize of €1.2 million gross for winning these prestigious titles.

In addition, the players won about €150,000 apiece for winning the Spanish Super Cup back in January, having thrashed league rivals FC Barcelona by a score of 4-1 in the final.

Reports have argued that Real Madrid will spend about €27.6 million on these bonuses. That said, this expense pales in comparison to the club’s overall profits from its performance.

After all, Real Madrid are predicted to make about €180 million by winning the Champions League, which includes all related income from sporting events and television rights.

In addition to increasing the club’s revenue, the financial windfall from these three titles guarantees that the players will receive a sizeable share of these winnings.

Winning such prestigious titles is already a remarkable achievement, but the additional monetary rewards will undoubtedly provide an extra boost for the players.

Moreover, having already established themselves as the most valuable club in the world, Real Madrid’s financial gains from these victories confirm their position as one of the world’s most prosperous football teams.

How Real Madrid can cope with Brahim Diaz’s AFCON leave

Real Madrid will face a significant challenge in the middle part of the 2025/2026 season.

The 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is set to take place in Morocco from December 21, 2025, to January 18, 2026, which could lead to the temporary loss of one of their key players, Brahim Diaz.

Brahim Diaz, an integral part of Real Madrid’s squad, is likely to be called up to represent Morocco in the tournament.

Under FIFA regulations, Real Madrid cannot refuse to release him for international duty. His potential absence could create a void in the squad during a crucial part of the season.

Diaz, whose contract with Real Madrid runs until 2027, has been a standout performer. In the recently concluded season, the 24-year-old scored 12 goals and provided 9 assists in 44 appearances for Los Blancos.

His contributions have been vital to the team’s success, and his absence will certainly be felt.

Three potential solutions for Real Madrid

To mitigate the impact of Diaz’s potential absence, Real Madrid could look to other talents within their squad. One promising option is Arda Güler, often referred to as the “Turkish Pearl.”

In his debut season with Real Madrid, the 19-year-old showcased his abilities despite having a relatively reserved role for most of the campaign.

Güler’s prominence increased towards the end of the season, especially after Real Madrid had already secured the league title. He finished the season with 6 goals in 12 appearances, demonstrating his potential to step up when needed.

Güler’s ability to play in advanced midfield positions and his knack for scoring could make him a suitable replacement for Diaz during the AFCON period.

This opportunity could also accelerate the player’s development, providing him with more significant playing time and a chance to solidify his place in the team.

Another option for Real Madrid would be to make a signing in the summer of 2025 to cater for Brahim’s vacancy.

Currently, the name of Germany and Leverkusen ace Florian Wirtz has been mentioned as a possibility for Real Madrid in a year.

His versatility and vision on the ball make him a good option to replace Brahim Diaz in the squad.

Lastly, with the absence of signings, Real Madrid can look into their youth side and call up Nico Paz to the first team for the one month Brahim Diaz will be out for.

The 19-year-old scored 11 goals and 4 assists in the just-ended season, with one of the goals coming in the UEFA Champions League against Napoli when he had his chance in the first team.

He has the vision, drive, and skillset that make him a like-for-like replacement for Brahim Diaz.
