It has been an extremely successful season for Real Madrid as they have already won two trophies in the form of La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup.

A third one could be on the horizon with the Merengues having made it to the finals of the UEFA Champions League where they face Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

Given the success, Los Blancos are set to reap great rewards financially as well from both domestic and European competitions.

Real Madrid to pocket €143 million from La Liga

Now, Mundo Deportivo reports that Real Madrid will be pocketing a total of €143 million from La Liga TV rights money this season.

This season, La Liga is expected to distribute around €1500 million for TV rights. Of that, 8.5% (around €127 million) is given as aid to non-professional football and other sporting disciplines.

The remainder (some €1373 million) is divided into two parts. Of the first 50%, some €750 million, the amount is split equally between all 20 La Liga clubs, with each team getting €37.5 million.

But the remaining part (around €623 million) is distributed on a percentage basis according to the final position of each team in the table. As such, the champions, Real Madrid, get 17% of the total pot.

Real Madrid, adding the fixed income plus the 17% of the remaining pot, will receive around €143 million.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
