AC Milan would jeopardise two of their main market objectives if they were to fail to qualify for the Champions League, a report claims.
Despite having been top for the majority of the Serie A season, the Rossoneri have found themselves in a fierce fight for the top four as they currently sit fifth in the standings and level with Napoli and Juventus on 66 points.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Champions League money is a big factor in how the management will be able to conduct their summer market. The 32 teams participating in the competition were guaranteed revenues of around €60m on average, so it is clear that the race for the top four will be vital to replenish the coffers.
The report adds that if Milan finish outside the top four they are unlikely to sign Fikayo Tomori outright for €28m as pre-agreed with Chelsea, and they are also likely to have to drop out of the race for Dusan Vlahovic of Fiorentina.
