Tottenham six-figure fee triggered after win against Real Madrid - report
By Danny Wright
Tottenham’s qualification to the final 16 of the Champions League has triggered a £2million bonus to be spread out among members of the squad, according to a report.
The Times claims that the six-figure fee will be shared by the players, with some earning more than others dependent upon the amount of appearances they have made.
It is understood that the bonus deal is worth a combined total of £7.5million should Spurs go all the way and win the Champions League for the first time in their history.
Mauricio Pochettino masterminded a brilliant 3-1 win against reigning European champions Real Madrid at Wembley on Wednesday night, meaning that they are guaranteed to finish in the top two of their group after Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia drew with one another.
The Times reports that although Daniel Levy runs the North London club on a very tight wage structure, players can potentially boost their salary by 20 per cent by meeting certain targets.

Danny Rose gave a very unwelcome interview in the summer which criticised the way that he and his team-mates are paid by the Spurs hierarchy.
However it seems that they are streets ahead of some of their rivals in the amount paid for bonuses as it is believed that Manchester United only shared out £1million for their Europa League win last season, albeit in the continent’s ‘second’ competition.
In other Tottenham news, Graham Roberts has claimed that this player was nowhere near his best in the Spurs and Real Madrid clash.
