The Foxes manager is on the verge of greatness
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is set to earn £6.7 million in bonuses if his side can finally wrap up the Premier League title.
The Italian was given the task of keeping Leicester in England’s top flight and the club’s board reportedly inserted clauses to make sacking him easier if he failed.
However, Ranieri allegedly added some clauses of his own, including incentives if the club qualified for the Europa League or the Champions League and if they did the unthinkable and won the title.
But as it stands, the Foxes are just three points away from securing the Premier League crown and have already secured their place in the group stages of next season’s Champions League.
Ranieri will receive an extra £5 million if the Foxes lift the famous trophy, as well as earning £100,000 for every place they finish above 18th – totalling up to £6.7 million.
The 64-year old currently earns £1.5 million-a-year at Leicester, but he is in talks about signing a new and improved contract at the King Power Stadium.
