French champions Paris Saint-Germain have been knocked out of the Champions League last 16 for the past two seasons, and now has the Qatari owned club offering the players 250,000€ (£180,293) in they beat Chelsea and move forward to the quarter-finals.

There is also a further incentive in place of 1€ million should they win the final in Berlin on June 6, which is double what the Real Madrid players earned for their win last season.

Currently PSG is second in Ligue 1 just one point behind league leaders Lyon, and are already through to the Coupe de la Ligue final where they will play Bastia on April 11th leading to speculation that Laurent Blanc’s team is in line for the French treble.

The French coach however is having none of it remarking: “Stories about the treble I will leave to others,” Blanc said.

“For the moment the only certainty is that we are in the Coupe de la Ligue final.

“We are not in the French Cup final, we are a long way from being crowned champions and we are not yet qualified for the Champions League.

“As regards the Chelsea match next week we have a tough game against Lens to come this weekend and one we must win.”

And while he refuse to speculate on the treble should the Parisians pull it off they will each receive a further 500,000€.
