If Manchester United are crowned Premier League champions at the end of the season, Blackburn Rovers, who host Sir Alex Ferguson's team on Monday, will cash in to the tune of £2million.
That is the sum United would have to pay Rovers as part of the 'add-ons' involved in defender Phil Jones's move from Ewood Park to Old Trafford last summer.
United agreed to pay a basic £16.5m for 20-year-old Jones, with £12.375m of that paid on the date he was officially registered as a United player - July 1 last year - and the balance of £4.125m on July 1 this year.
On top of that, Blackburn will get a £2m payment on the first occasion United win either the Premier League or the Champions League with Jones at the club, as long as he has started half or more of the games in the relevant competition.
Jones is already guaranteed that in the league this season, so if United win the title, they will pay Rovers that £2m.
Obviously, nobody at Blackburn wants anything but a win for Rovers on Monday, but the add-ons highlight the potential for conflicts of interest in such situations, as well as how lucrative post-transfer landmarks can be.
Further add-ons for England competitive appearances could net Blackburn up to another £2m, Rovers being due £500,000 for each five starts Jones makes in competitive internationals, up to a total of 20.
Jones has just one under his belt so far, against Montenegro last November - his three other England appearances being in friendlies - but could theoretically hit five before the end of Euro 2012.
And Blackburn will also pocket 20 per cent of any future sale profit if Jones moves on.
Maybe that is why director Vineeth Rao, who is Venky's senior representative at the club on a day-to-day basis, appears to have a soft spot for United.
Recently he even shared with friends a photograph of himself holding United's Premier League trophy and smiling while visiting United for a match.
'Then again, that's the closest he'll get to the title,' quipped an Ewood insider.
