How much money Chelsea would earn by simply reaching the Champions League final on Wednesday has been revealed. The Blues face Real Madrid in the semi-final second leg after a 1-1 draw at Madrid a week ago.
Chelsea have a good chance of getting to the Champions League final to set up an all-English final battle. However, they have to overcome Real Madrid in tonight’s game at Stamford Bridge.
So far, moreover, the Blues have earned £79.7m from the prestigious competition and could again gain £3.5m – provided they beat Manchester City in the final and lift the trophy.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will only get a 10% share of the broadcasting pool made available to Premier League clubs. And this is because the club finished fourth in the table last season.
Although advancing to the final won’t come easy as Zinedine Zidane has started his mind games already. But we believe the Blues will never back down and will put up a tough fight at Stamford Bridge.
