Man City top players to earn more than £2m each in bonuses …if they achieve historic treble this season

Manchester City’s top players will earn more than £2million a man in bonuses if they achieve an historic treble this season.

Pep Guardiola’s side booked their place in the Champions League semi-finals for the third consecutive season on Wednesday by beating Bayern Munich 4-1 on aggregate. City face Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-finals today, before a huge Premier League home clash with Arsenal in midweek.

The defending champions are four points behind Arsenal with a game in hand as they look to become the first club since Manchester United in 1999 to lift three titles in a row.

City’s bonus system is structured on an individual basis rather than being an agreed amount that is shared among the squad.

Mail Sport understands bonuses for winning the league range from £200,000 to £900,000, while the sums on offer for lifting the FA Cup are somewhat less.

Leading players including Kevin De Bruyne will receive payouts in the region of £1m for delivering a first Champions League trophy for the club.

City’s last triumph in Europe came in 1970 in the Cup-Winners’ Cup.

“We can win everything of course,’ said City midfielder, Rodri. ‘We’ve had a great seven or eight months to arrive in this moment to fight for everything. We have to give the best of us.” – Sportsmail
