AC Milan’s project would suffer quite serious economic damage if the team were to fail to qualify for the next Champions League, according to a report.
The defeat against Inter has made it clear just how precarious the situation is for Milan as they have gone from a potential renewed Scudetto push 80 minutes into the Roma game to now being outside the top four after a run of five league games without a wim.
As Calcio e Finanza (via MlanNews) report, according to the accounts of the Rossoneri, not qualifying for the top club competition in Europe would be a significant problem. In fact, the 2022 budget shows that the club collected almost €45m by going out in the group stage in 2021-22, while this year the €60m mark has already been reached.
However, the minimum amount guaranteed by access to the Champions League is €30.61m, certainly not an irrelevant number. There is €15.64m from the participation bonus, €10.24m from the historical ranking, €2m from market pool one and €2.73, from market pool two.
More than the whole budget was last year. Not investing another 15-30M in January might cost the club over 60M in the end. We definitely need a RW that is dangerous so Leao doesn’t have to play alone.
