LUIS SUAREZ has already been paid a bonus thanks to his stunning form for Atletico Madrid.
The goal machine has hit the ground running since his move from Barcelona last summer.
Luis Suarez has bagged himself a bonus at Atletico Madrid
His stunning form has fired Atletico Madrid to the top of LaLiga – five points ahead of Real Madrid with two games in hand.
Former club Barca are eight points behind.
And Mundo Deportivo report that the Uruguayan was paid a million Euros bonus (£880,000) for scoring 15 goals.
Suarez is also in line for another payout if and when he makes it to 20 goals, which seems like a formality.
The Uruguay striker has found a new lease of life since his tearful exit from Barcelona last year.
He was seen driving out of the training ground for the last time in tears after six years at the club – during which he won four LaLigas and the Champions League.
Atletico have lost just one league game this season and Suarez credits manager Diego Simeone with their record.

He told Onda Cero: “He is one of those coaches who convinces you by his desire and positivity and by everything he knows about this.
“I rely more on the coach’s conviction when speaking to you than on the style of play he has.
“Simeone is a coach who reaches out to you and motivates you.
“I would not like to be a coach, you suffer a lot and you can’t keep everyone happy.”
