- Mahamadou Diarra's transfer from Lyon stipulates that "for the entire duration of Diarra’s five year contract, Lyon get paid €1M for every La Liga title Diarra wins, up to €3m total, making his total transfer worth up to €29M." Translated, that's $1.3M in American money.
- Ruud van Nistelrooy's move from Manchester United had a clause in it that says that the English champions are entitled to $1.3M as well. Half of it because Real won la Liga, the other half for the Dutchman winning the Pichichi, the prize for being the league's top scorer.
- Ronaldo is entitled to a pro-rated amount for being part of a title-winning side. Since he left the team in January, his cut will come to almost half of what his ex-teammates will receive: $234,745
- That brings us to the players. The captains (Raul and Guti) hammered out a bonus deal that raised the player payouts from last season, to a shade over $67,000. That means that every first-teamer (at least 25 players) will be getting a check for $469,490.
