It has been yet another successful campaign for Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti as they have already secured two trophies and can add a third one before the season ends.

Indeed, having won the Spanish Super Cup back in January, Real Madrid secured the La Liga title this past weekend and will be handed the trophy this Sunday.

Real Madrid will now play Bayern Munich in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals tonight, with a final date against Borussia Dortmund on the line.

Given Los Blancos’ history and success in the competition, it is only logical to have them as the favourites for tonight’s clash. And if they prevail against Bayern, Carlo Ancelotti & co. would be seen as the likeliest to go all the way.

Real Madrid stars to get a bonus

Now, MARCA has come forward with a report stating that Real Madrid stars could be in line for a special bonus come the end of the season.

As per the report, should Real Madrid go ahead and win the UEFA Champions League to add to the La Liga and Super Cup triumphs, each player will be rewarded with a bonus of €1.4 million gross.

It would be €500,000 more than what the Merengues’ stars pocketed after completing the league and UCL double, along with the Super Cup, during the 2021/22 season.

The increase in the bonus handouts compared to what was paid two years ago is due to the almost total recovery of the club’s income and the arrival of new sponsors.

As per the report, victory in La Liga will mean that Real Madrid will earn around €53 million. This amount is subject to several factors and the money will be spread over the next four seasons.

Furthermore, winning the Champions League would guarantee an income of around €150 million, with the Spanish capital club having already earned over €100 million from the competition this season.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
