Chelsea players have got all the motivation they needed to win their second Champions League title when they face fellow Premier League club Manchester City in Istanbul later this month.
The Blues dispatched 13th-time champions Real Madrid 3-1 on aggregate in the semifinals despite starting the season on a poor note under former boss Frank Lampard.
Thomas Tuchel's men have now been promised a staggering £5 million to bring the trophy to Stamford Bridge.

This is after they got an initial £5 million for ending Los Blancos' dreams of advancing to the finals after the both-legged affair.
A goal each from Tino Werner and Kai Havertz were all Tuchel's men needed to book their ticket and face known rival City in a few weeks from now.
Meanwhile, SunSport reports that the bonus package had been agreed on with the players even before the season started.
The publication however thinks Chelsea will head into the game as underdogs against City who have been promised a whopping £15m bonus if they conquer Europe for the first time in their history.
Apart from the Champions League, Tuchel's men are also in the FA Cup final despite the manager taking over mid-season and they will meet Leicester City in their quest for a double this season.
Tuchel was appointed Chelsea manager in January following the poor run of results under Frank Lampard but all that has changed with the German setting a number of records just a few months into his reign at the Bridge.
