Liverpool and Manchester City in line for record prize money if they win Champions League
Daily Mirror says Liverpool and Manchester City stand to make record amounts of prize money should they go on to win this season’s Champions League, with the semi-finalists assured of at least €100m (£84.4m) if they progress to next month’s showpiece in Paris.
The Premier League ’s top two face Villarreal and Real Madrid respectively in the first legs of their last four ties this week. And they have already banked close to €90m (£75.9m) from a campaign that will last a maximum of 13 games.
According to a breakdown of prize money from football-coefficient, Jurgen Klopp’s side have made €89.1m to date with Pep Guardiola’s side earning €88.8m (£74.8m). Chelsea, who were knocked out in dramatic fashion by Real a fortnight ago, made €81.8m (£69m). Both finalists will receive €15.5m (£13.1m) with the champions getting an additional €4.5m (£3.8m).
