This year's final in football Champions League they will play it Real Madrid и Borussia Dortmund, but this final will be completely different from other finals for one and only one reason – finances.

Namely, at the "Wembley" stadium in London on June 1, the Spanish and German teams will compete, but the star and best player of Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham, will be in the center of attention.

The reason for this is the fact that last summer the Englishman exchanged the Borussia Dortmund shirt for the "royal" club's shirt in a transfer worth around 100 million euros.

There is an interesting clause in the contract that states that Dortmund will receive an additional 25 million euros at the time Real Madrid and Bellingham win the Champions League.

Because of this possible bonus, Dortmund may find themselves in a quandary as to whether it is worth winning the trophy in Europe's most elite club competition, as the prize fund of the competition foresees 20 million euros for the winner of this season's title and 15 million euros for the loser in the final.

All this ultimately means that Borussia Dortmund will win 20 million euros if they win the final, and if they lose they will have a chance to win 40 million euros, 15 million euros from UEFA and 25 million euros from Real Madrid.
