How much Manchester United have earned by reaching Europa League final 2020/2021

Manchester United are through to the Europa League final after sealing an 8-5 aggregate verdict over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico

Manchester United have pocketed an additional €4.5million after booking their place in the Europa League final at the expense of Roma.

Heading to the Italian capital with a healthy 6-2 advantage from the first leg, United completed a routine semi-final verdict courtesy of a 3-2 scoreline at the Stadio Olimpico.

Goals from Edinson Cavani rubber-stamped what was a one-sided, but equally memorable, European tie.

United are now set to take on Villarreal in the Gdansk showpiece on Wednesday, May 26, where the overall winners are set to be awarded a further €4million on top of their existing prize money totted-up so far during the 2020/2021 competition.

Late arrivals to the Europa League party - on account of their Champions League group stage involvement - United earned €23.35million for their UCL exploits this season.

That includes an initial €15.25million for taking part in Group H alongside PSG, RB Leipzig and Basaksehir.

Winning against each of their Champions League opponents - losing the other three games - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men did do enough to be handed €8.1million (3 x €2.7million) in the shape of result-based bonuses.

Beyond that, the Premier League club would have cashed in a significant sum as part of a market pool which, every campaign, is distributed between participants - based on a proportional value of the TV market from the respective nation they are from.

While that figure hasn't been revealed for this campaign, it's thought to be worth around €20million to United.

Following their demotion into the supplementary competition (Europa League), the club has already pocketed just under €13million for their on-field success there, too.

Base fee - €2.92m

Last-32 vs Real Sociedad - €0.5m

Last-16 vs AC Milan - €1.1m

Quarter-finals vs Granada - €1.5m

Victory in the Europa League showpiece would take United's total earnings in the competition to a cool €16.92million.

Similarly to the Champions League, though, they are also set to be paid out a share of the market pool (€168million), which once again is expected to surpass the €20million mark.

In summary, United have already earned €36.27million on-field in both competitions combined - and that total will rise to €40.27million if they reign supreme at the Gdansk Stadium later this month.

Depending on how the market pools are dished out, their overall financial reward for taking part in Europe this year will come in at around €60-80million.
