Liverpool have earned an astonishing £215,904,609 from the Premier League’s commercial deal and for progressing to the Champions League final.
With the Reds linked with a number of highly exciting names already, it’s important to wonder where the money will come from to fund moves for such high-value talent.
The likes of Naby Keita do not come cheaply. It’s just as well that Liverpool have earned an incredible amount of money this season, with their performance both domestic and abroad set to fund a massive summer for Jürgen Klopp.
The Premier League’s massive TV deal has seen each club take home around £100 million with bonuses included based on the number of live games each side featured in.
With the joint-highest number of games televised this season, Liverpool earned a whopping £145,904,609. The Reds earned more than Tottenham despite finishing below them in the table.
On top of that significant windfall from the league’s TV deal with Sky Sports and BT Sports, the Merseysiders earned £57 million for reaching the semi-finals and for beating AS Roma across two legs, the Reds earned a further £13 million.
The total from the Premier League and Champions League revenue brings the Reds’ tournament prize money intake to £215, 04,609.
While a significant amount of that money will be spent on wages for staff of all types at the club, it does mean that the club’s coffers have been boosted to the point that spending big on transfers is more than possible.
We’ve already seen that Klopp is prepared to spend big, with Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keïta set to cost a combined £129 million.
