Spurs bag bonus payment from Real Madrid winning CL, for Modric but not Bale [Times]
- May 26, 2014
There were rumours in the aftermath of Real Madrid’s Champions League final victory that Spurs had secured up to 20 million pounds thanks to bonus payments included in the deals that took Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Spain.
Gary Jacob of The Times has revealed today that Tottenham will receive a bonus payment for Luka Modric winning the Champions League – but there was no such clause in Gareth Bale’s mega transfer last summer.
Real Madrid paid 27.8 million pounds for Modric with a further 5.5 million pounds added on depending on targets reached.
This included Real Madrid simply reaching the Champions League final.
Jacob adds that there was no similar payment on the Bale deal.
Perhaps this will allow Tottenham to hold on to their best players this summer…
