Newcastle’s players will receive £1 million in bonuses if they defeat Manchester United in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. The Magpies are aiming for their first trophy in 48 years.
The squad’s bonus pool is ten times the amount of money Newcastle will receive as a prize for winning the trophy.
The club’s owners, on the other hand, are eager to reward the squad for what would be a historic achievement.
The bonuses will be distributed among the players based on a complex formula that takes into account both matches and minutes played in this season’s competition.
Eddie Howe, the team’s manager, will also receive a contract bonus if he leads the team to victory. The Carabao Cup winner will receive £100,000, while the runners-up will receive £50,000.
