After the achievement of winning five of the six titles available, Real Madrid’s players have accrued bonuses to the tune of two million euros per player in 2017, the most in the history of the club.
The big prize came with the winning the double that hadn’t been done since the 1957/58 season and that the club paid as it deserves: 1.5 million euros each.
The figure, gross (taxed at 52%), was paid to the entire staff and to the five members of the coaching department.

Then came the two Super Cups, European and Spanish, and the Club World Cup.
Three trophies that do not have the cache of the league, Copa del Rey or the Champions League, but that together have returned a decent amount of cash for the Real players.
In the negotiation between the captains with the president, it was agreed that the achievement of these three titles would be accompanied by a bonus that exceeds half a million euros, so that 2017 has become the most prolific year in terms of bonuses earned.
