EPL: Arsenal’s bonuses to be paid after qualifying for Champions League revealed
Arsenal players are in line for big bonuses if they clinch a spot in next season’s Champions League. The Gunners are on course for a top four finish in the Premier League. The Daily Mail reports that the Mikel Arteta’s men will receive lump sum bonuses that are worth as much as £500,000. These bonuses are not equal throughout the Arsenal squad, but the highest on offer is the enormous £500k payment. A top-four finish would see clauses in some contracts triggered, which would see weekly wages increase for those players. Qualifying for the Champions League is worth around £50m to a club in broadcasting revenue and prize money, making the huge pay-outs affordable. The Gunners have won their last four Premier League games, suffering just one defeat in their last 10 They are one point and one place ahead of Manchester United in fifth, but crucially have three games in hand on the Red Devils, as well as West Ham in sixth.
