The amount is negotiated individually and features on the contract

Barça are already in Copa del Rey final, meaning they only have one game left to add another title to their record, which would be the 28th Copa del Rey. If Barça win it, will the players get a bonus? And will the youngsters of the reserve team who played a few minutes with the first team also get something?

Jordi Borda and Xavi Campos explained, on Wednesday in the radio show LaTdP during Valencia-Barça, that the club isn't currently negotiating a general bonus (to split) to the whole team for each title but that each player has a price mentioned in their contract in the case they win competitions. However, to win only Copa del Rey wouldn't give the players the right to get an economic compensation if on of the 2 big trophies isn't won: La Liga or the Champion's League.

In the event of the team completing these conditions, the player has to have played 60% of minutes during the games he was avaiable, to get the reward. That is to say, without being injured. For example, until now Barça have played 22 games in La Liga (1,980 minutes). Sergi Roberto has played 1,190 minutes in La Liga, which represents 60.1%.  That would already give him the right to get the bonus, but as he was injured in three games, he finally has played 69.59% of the 1,710 minutes he coulf play. It is way above the minimum to get the bonus, if they win La Liga.

Reserve team players

Wilfrid Kaptoum, Sergi Samper, Gerard Gumbau o Juan Cámara, who belong to the reserve team buy played some minutes in Copa del Rey, also go by what is written in their contracts, individually. In that case, the club and the player agree on the compensation the player gets if he plays with the first team. According to Carles Domènech, whichever player from the reserve team can cash between 10,000 and 12,000 euros if they play 15 minutes in a first team game.

In the event of a final victory, the contracts of those players don't mention any bonus for each title, although last year Munir el Haddadi and Sandro Ramirez got a special contribution, out of the contract, as a reward for winning Copa del Rey. It is yet to see this year, in the case Barça wins the title, if the situation will repeat itself with Kaptoum, Samper, Gumbau or Cámara and, much more unlikely, if this reward will be extended to Aitor Cantalapieda, who played the two games against Villanovense but who is no longer part of the club.
