Premier League club receives bizarre £5m bonus payment after Real Madrid reach Champions League final

Premier League club receives bizarre £5m bonus payment after Real Madrid reach Champions League final

Real Madrid will take on Borussia Dortmund in next month’s Champions League final.

Real Madrid’s passage to the Champions League final has brought in a £5 million bonus payment for one Premier League.

Last week, two late Joselu goals at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium secured a 2-1 win for Los Blancos over German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Madrid will be looking to win their 15th Champions League trophy when they take on Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley on June 1.

On the back of Madrid’s successful run to the Champions League final, it has been claimed that Premier League club Chelsea have received a £5 million bonus payment.

As reported by The Telegraph, the Stamford Bridge club will land a £5 million bonus from Eden Hazard’s transfer to Madrid, which took place back in 2019.

The Belgian was sold for a reported package worth £130 million, which includes more than £40 million in add-ons.

Despite Hazard having his contract terminated by the Madrid club last summer, it has been reported that the terms of his transfer remain valid.

Back in October 2023, Hazard announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 32.


In a statement, the Belgian said: “You must listen to yourself and say stop at the right time. After 16 years and more than 700 matches played, have decided to end my career as a professional footballer.

“I was able to realise my dream, I have played and had fun on many pitches around the world. During my career I was lucky to meet great managers, coaches and teammates - thank you to everyone for these great times, will miss you all.”

Hazard continued: “I also want to thank the clubs I have played for: LOSC, Chelsea and Real Madrid; and thank the RBFA for my Belgian Selection.”

During his career, Hazard made a total of 635 club appearances across all competitions and has 168 goals to his name.

On the international stage, the player was capped 126 times by Belgium, scoring 33 times.
