Premier League giants Chelsea are gearing towards making more money one year after selling Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
The Belgian forward ended his seven-year reign with the Blues after moving to the Spanish capital in a deal around £91 million.
And barely one season after becoming a Galacticos, the forward helped Los Blancos win the Spanish League title for the first time since 2017.
According to SunSport, Chelsea included a few clauses in the Hazard's deal before allowing him to leave Stamford Bridge last summer.
The Sun reveals that the Blues could earn as much as £18 million after Zinedine Zidane's men emerged champions of Spain following their 2-1 win over Villarreal.
Karim Benzema scored the two goals that secured their 34th Spanish League title on Thursday, July 16. While Real's UCL qualification is said to be worth £14m to Chelsea according to Sports Ration.
However, the funds will come in handy for the Blues who are trying to fortify their squad in the transfer market this summer.
Frank Lampard has already splashed £89 million on the duo of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of next season.
But they are yet to reach a deal for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, as well as a new keeper.
Chelsea are expected to earn more from the deal if Hazard helped Real Madrid win the Champions League.
Zidane's men will hope they can overturn their 2-1 deficit to Manchester City when they reassemble for the second leg of their clash next month.
And the Premier League outfit could earn a total of £130m from Madrid for Hazard if all the conditions attached to the deal are met.
Legit.ng earlier reported that newly crowned Spanish League champions Real Madrid are confident they can lure Kylian Mbappe away from Paris Saint Germain next summer.
Los Blancos won their 34th La Liga title following their 2-1 victory over Villarreal in their second to the last game of the season.
Karim Benzema scored the two goals that powered Zinedine Zidane's men to glory - beating their arch-rival to the silverware.
