Mario Balotelli could quadruple his reported €1million salary with hometown club Brescia if he hits targets in his contract.
Balotelli made the move to the club where he grew up during the summer transfer window, joining on a free transfer from Marseille.
The 29-year-old took a pay cut to join the newly promoted Serie A side, reportedly earning €1million per year, compared to the much higher wages he had during his time with Marseille and OGC Nice.
But, it has now been revealed that the former Manchester City striker could quadruple his salary thanks to the bonuses within his contract with the northern Italian club.
According to Corriere della Sera , Balotelli's contract broken down is a fixed salary of €1m a year, but will earn a significant amount more if he fulfills certain conditions.
Those conditions are, if Brescia beats the drop and he scores at least 15 goals during the season he gets a bonus of €3m.
If one of the two conditions is not met, the bonus will not be triggered in the contract.
In the event that both conditions are met, Balotelli quadruples salary from €1m to €4m. The agreement is valid for three seasons, with various conditions.
And if the Brescia are relegated at any point in the next three seasons, the contract is "dissolved".
Balotelli missed the opening four matches of the season, after he served a ban that he picked up during his time in Ligue 1.
Since completing his ban the Italy international featured twice, playing the full 180 minutes and scored in the 2-1 defeat to Napoli before the international break.
Balotelli will undoubtedly be targeting a return to the international stage ahead of next summers European Championships, with former boss Roberto Mancini in charge.
