Malaga, who host Real Madrid in the final round of the Primera Division, will take home extra cash as part of Isco’s transfer to Real Madrid in 2013.
The Andalusian club sold Isco to Bernabeu in 2013 for a fee of €27m and, according to reports coming from Spain, that deal included €3m in variables if the midfielder helped his new side win the Primera Division in his first five seasons – with a payment of €1m agreed for each title.
Real Madrid have claimed two Champions League title since the Spaniard joined, but they failed to win La Liga in that time, so none of those extras have yet been paid out.
The Andalusians, coached by Madrid legend Michel, have little to play for themselves and will finish between 11th and 13th in the table.
However, Real can clinch the title with a draw in their final game of the season on Sunday after beating Celta Vigo 4-1 on Wednesday – and that last match is away to Malaga.
Malaga beat Barcelona 2-0 in early April and Michel said after that match: “Real Madrid will be the champions, but a Malaga man from Real Madrid has lent them a hand.”
