What Chelsea players will pocket if they beat Liverpool

Chelsea’s squad stands to earn a collective bonus of £500,000 if they emerge victorious in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley.

This potential triumph would mark the first major trophy under the ownership of Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, who took over from Roman Abramovich in 2022.

Despite significant spending in the transfer market, the new owners have kept a close eye on expenses, including bonuses and the wage bill.

While Chelsea has faced challenges in the Premier League, their success in domestic cup competitions has been notable this season.

Under Mauricio Pochettino’s management, the team has navigated past several opponents to reach the final, offering players a chance to earn a modest bonus.

The distribution of the £500k prize fund will be based on players’ participation in the Carabao Cup this season, with each player’s share determined by the minutes played.

This bonus scheme contrasts with Manchester United’s £1.6m payout to the squad for winning last year’s Carabao Cup final.

Despite this, Chelsea’s focus on more substantial bonuses for achievements in the Champions League, such as qualification or victory, remains unchanged.
