Chelsea stars will share a £5million bonus for winning the Premier League this season.
The Blues are seven points clear of nearest rivals Tottenham and can seal the title with victory against West Brom tonight.
The money will be handed out as soon as Chelsea get their hands on the prize, with players who’ve made the most appearances getting the larger sums.
The Times claims ten per cent of the pot will be put aside for unused subs and other squad players.
But the £5m fee is no bigger than Brighton’s reward for achieving top-flight promotion from the Championship.
SunSport can exclusively reveal the Seagulls will cash in on their exploits in England’s second tier despite recording a financial loss of £25.8m for the 2015/16 season.
Like Chelsea’s bonus, Brighton players will be paid based on how many games they’ve played under Chris Hughton.
That means 45-gamers Glenn Murray, David Stockdale and Anthony Knockaert will each take home a whopping £300,000.
But the money is peanuts compared to the £200m windfall which comes with promotion to the top flight.
