Leicester City players have been handed an extra incentive to win the league after being promised a party in Las Vegas with £1 million to spend if they lift the trophy in May, according to The Sun.
The Foxes were 5000-1 to win the Premier League at the start of the this season but headed into the title clash with Arsenal as favourites to become champions.
With just 12 matches remaining after this weekend, Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has given their team extra motivation to pull off the incredible feat by promising them a massive party in the summer to reward them for their unbelievable campaign.
The players will fly to Sin City with Srivaddhanaprabha promising them £1 million spending money – around £40,000 for each squad member - to splash on the casinos, alcohol or whatever else takes their fancy in Vegas.
It was revealed last week that the players wouldn’t be receiving any title bonus as they weren’t including in their contracts at the start of the season.
However, the players have a bonus in their contract which sees them earn money for every ten points they earn this season – they have currently earned 53 points ahead of the match against the Gunners.
The players are also certain to share £6.5 million for exceeding expectations in the league – which was to finish twelve or above.
Leicester will no doubt review their bonus structure next season with the club almost guaranteed to play Champions League football next campaign.
Despite the lack of a bonus for winning the league, the players will now be focusing on what would be the biggest party of their lives if they manage to achieve the impossible.
After this weekend, Leicester won’t have to face any of the current top four and have a favourable run-in. They face an away trip to current champions Chelsea on the final day of the season, a match which could see the Blues hand the trophy over the Ranieri’s men.
