- Chelsea earned £55m, Manchester City £54m and Tottenham £52m this season
Manchester United have earned the least amount of revenue out of all English clubs from their participation in this season’s Champions League.
Jose Mourinho’s side raked in £37million, £15m less than Tottenham despite exiting at the same stage of the competition as the north London side.
The reason behind the difference in revenue is due to United sealing their spot in the 2017-18 Champions League by winning last season’s Europa League.

Semi-finalists Liverpool have earned £57m, the most out of the five English teams involved in the competition, with that figure set to rise even further.
If Liverpool beat Roma in the upcoming semi-final and win the final in Kiev they could be set for a £71.7m Champions League windfall.
Of the other three Premier League sides who took part in this year’s competition: Chelsea earned £55m, Man City £54m and Tottenham £52m.
Jose Mourinho’s side are the lowest-earning English side from the 2017-18 competition
The five Premier League clubs revenue comes in part from them dividing up BT Sport’s £119m deal to broadcast the Champions League.

Liverpool – £57m*
Chelsea – £55m
Manchester City – £54m
Tottenham – £52m
Manchester United – £37m

A similar deal in Italy means Roma would receive more should they win the competition because only three Serie A sides; themselves, Napoli and Juventus, were involved this season.
The other semi-finalists; Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, would make £75m each should they go all the way and win the Kiev final.
The way fees are also determined is dependent on group stage results and whether or not clubs qualified through the Champions League playoffs or not.
United were dumped out by Sevilla in the last-16 with Wissam Ben Yedder’s brace securing a shock win for the Spaniards at Old Trafford.
Chelsea lost to Barcelona in the last 16, Tottenham fell to Juventus at the same stage and Liverpool overcame City in the quarter-finals.
