Revealed: Manchester City made more money than Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League

UEFA distributed more money to Manchester City than ANY other club in last season’s Champions League, it has been revealed.

Despite exiting in the semi-final stage to eventual champions Real Madrid, City were handed a staggering sum of €83,853,000 by UEFA, with €46,921,000 coming from the market pool.

With Manchester United going out in the group stage, followed by Chelsea and Arsenal in the Round of 16, City were entitled to a bigger chunk of the market pool revenue. Progress to the quarter-finals (€6,000,000) and semi-finals (€7,000,000) also boosted the kitty.

Real Madrid received the second highest total (€80,067,000) but City pocketed €3.8 million more than the tournament winners.
