According to an official UEFA document of payments made to clubs in the 2017/18 Champions League, City, who were eliminated in the quarter final round by Liverpool – the biggest earners of the five English clubs involved – received €63.8 million.
Chelsea also earned more than City, despite going out a round earlier, while Tottenham were slightly behind City and Manchester United, the only one of the English teams to exit in the group stage were well behind.
The income for the English clubs was as follows:
1. Liverpool – €81,283,000
