Real Madrid have already received the 132 million euros from UEFA for winning the European Champions League, according to El Debate.
Leverage' is one of the buzzwords in the current transfer market thanks to Barcelona, who have used the term to explain the sale of assets such as television rights that have allowed them to obtain the cash to sign Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Koundé. In total, the club presided over by Joan Laporta has invested 158 million euros.
Real Madrid, for their part, have been more austere in this transfer window despite their healthy finances. Los Blancos, who had prepared a large sum of money for the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, have had to make do with the signings of Aurélien Tchoauméni and Antonio Rüdiger. For the French midfielder, Madrid paid Monaco 80 million euros + 20 million euros in variable payments, while the German centre back arrived on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Chelsea.
In addition, Madrid have seen their income increase significantly thanks to the Champions League. According to the digital portal El Debate, the club has already received the 132 million euros it is entitled to for winning the European Champions League, including prize money and the distribution of television rights. The victory against Liverpool in the final in Saint-Denis (1-0) thanks to Vinicius' solitary goal in the second half represents a huge injection of money for the club's coffers.
In the last few days, UEFA has reportedly already paid this amount to the club for lifting the 14th Champions League, a Champions League title won in three epic knockout rounds against PSG in the last 16, Chelsea in the quarter finals and Manchester City in the semi-finals before beating Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool in the final in Paris.
According to El Debate, Madrid calculate that the income from winning the Superliga, the alternative project to UEFA that they are promoting together with Barcelona and Juventus, would double that of the Champions League, as the teams would earn 151 kilos for participating alone, another 30 for television rights and the champion would pocket an additional 125 million euros.
