Man.Utd Loss To Ajax In Europa Final Would Cost The Red Devils £50m

Failing to beat Ajax in the Europa final on may 24th will see    Manchester United miss out on a whooping £50m.

The game is Manchester united's only hope of qualifying for the champions league next season.

Failure to qualify for this competition for a second successive season would trigger a £21m penalty clause in their 10-year, £750m sponsorship deal with Adidas.

United also expect to earn up to £30m more by being in the Champions League.

The Old Trafford club’s financial officer Cliff Baty said: “For us the bigger prize is Adidas and Champions League.”

According to Baty, in a normal year, United would expect to generate between £40m and £50m in the Champions League compared to between £15m and £20m in the Europa League.
