CM: Financial impact of UCL return would be huge – how much Milan would earn

By Oliver Fisher -

If AC Milan were to handle business on Sunday and secure a spot in the top four they would be active on the transfer market, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes that returning to the elite European continental is fundamental for both the sporting and financial project. If Milan achieve qualification for the 2021-22 edition of the Champions League, the Rossoneri would earn a figure made up of several components.

About €15m would arrive in participation bonus (this year it was €14.5m), the distribution share based on the ten-year ranking (also about €15m), to which the market pool would be added (divided into two shares) and the amount of which would depend on the final positioning in the league (€7.5m for second, €5m for third and €2.5m for fourth).

Results in the competition also weigh, as for example Inter only got qualification for the group stages and crashed out in fourth, so they only got €4.8m. Consequently, as a starting point, Milan would take home a sum that would exceed €30m – a completely different value compared to the Europa League (this year around €12m).
