How much Man Utd have made from European adventure this season including Europa League bonus in transfer kitty boost

MANCHESTER UNITED are preparing to take on Villarreal as their rollercoaster European campaign draws to a close.

The Red Devils started off the 2020-21 season in the Champions League before crashing out in the group stage.

In a tough group alongside Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir, United looked well-set to progress at one stage.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad lost three of their final four games to finish third and be 'relegated' to the Europa League last-32 stage.

However, that may have been a blessing for United.

After all, the club have enjoyed frequent pay-days for their long run to the final.

But how much have United made purely from European football this season?

First and foremost, the Red Devils received a whopping £16.4million for qualifying for this season's Champions League having finished third in the Premier League last term.

And despite crashing out in the group stage, United still earned a reported £10.7m for their six games.

Man Utd also pocketed an estimated £14.4m in TV revenue, although the full figures could be higher than that once the pool is divided amongst all the teams.

After dropping into Europe's second tier, United picked up a £2.5m base fee for taking part.

They earned an additional £400,000 for beating Real Sociedad in the first knockout stage, before raking in £1m for battling past AC Milan in the last-16.

The quarter-final win over Granada saw them take home an extra £1.3m, while the Roma victory in the semis earned them £2m.

Up to this point, United have already picked up a staggering £48.7m.

But that number will shoot up regardless of the result against Villarreal on Wednesday night.

Should United lose, they will be awarded £3.9m, while a win would see that number go up to £7.4m.

That means Man Utd will earn either £52.6m or £56.1m – with more set to roll in depending on TV revenue distribution.
