Real Madrid won La Liga on Saturday, winning the championship after defeating relegation-threatened Cadiz 3-0 and witnessing Barcelona fall to Catalan rivals Girona 4-2.

Only once this season—against Atletico Madrid in September—has Carlo Ancelotti’s team suffered a defeat; in the previous 28 league games, they have gone undefeated.

Indeed, Jude Bellingham stands out as the player who has contributed most to Los Blancos’ supremacy at home this season.

Having scored eighteen goals in the league and provided his colleagues with a creative outlet, the England international has won over both the Real supporters and the media.

With the score tied at 2-2, Real Madrid’s last remaining match is the second leg of their Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Bellingham and company are sure to get a sizable bonus should Ancelotti’s team advance to the final and win their record-breaking 15th European Cup.

In fact, according to Marca, the players and staff in the 2021–2022 season received incentives of about €450,000 (£386,000) net for winning the Champions League, La Liga, and the Spanish Super Cup.

Football Espana claimed earlier this season that, before Real Madrid’s 4-1 victory against Barcelona in the Super Cup final, a £3 million bonus fund had been divided between the players and members of the coaching staff.

If Real Madrid wins the Champions League, it’s reasonable to suppose that the players and staff will receive a sizable bonus.

Bellingham has disclosed the emotional rationale behind his decision to wear the No. 5 shirt at Real.

He said: “My father always wore a Real Madrid shirt around the house with ‘Zidane’ on the back, which is funny because, in a way, it has come full circle.

“He gave it to me when I arrived here in the summer. He always wore it and I always asked him: ‘Who is this guy you have on your shirt?’ And he always answered: ‘When you’re older, we’ll see him on YouTube…’ And now that I’m wearing No.5, it has ended up being a quite significant story. Really special to me.”
