Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa is guaranteed a £100,000 bonus by his English Premier League club Leicester City at the end of the season after the Foxes reached the Champions League knockout stages.


But the largesse could rise further if the team progresses in the competition, according to the Daily Mail.

 Musa missed out on the BMW i8 cars presented all Leicester City players by their Thai chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in August for winning the PL title last season. The Nigerian joined the club this summer from CSKA Moscow.

Leicester will receive €5.5million (approximately £4.6m) from UEFA for taking part in the round of 16, with €1.5m (£1.3m) per group win and €500,000 (£420,000) per group draw also due to the English champions, adding €6.5m (£5.6m) to their overall prize money after collecting 13 points.

Daily Mail says Leicester players will get roughly a quarter of this total pool, equating to €3m (£2.5m), which is divided between the 24 Champions League squad members comes to just over £100,000.

The bonus scheme is standard practice among Champions League teams, but is new to Leicester given this is their debut participation in the tournament.
