Tottenham have secured a £10.4million windfall for reaching the Champions League semi-finals, according to confirmed Uefa figures.
Football Insider can reveal the club’s remarkable quarter-final triumph over Manchester City on Wednesday night will land Spurs the fresh cash boost on top of the revenue they were already set to receive for participation in Europe’s elite competition, prize money and their share of the TV pool.
Uefa Champions League distribution data for the 2018-19 season shows the figure for securing a last-four berth has increased by £3.9m from the £6.5m guaranteed last season.
This is a major boost for Spurs at a time when they are footing the debt payments for their magnificent £1billion new stadium.
As revealed by Football Insider earlier this month, the north Londoners announced a world-record profit of £113million in their recently-published financial results.
Turnover increased in the 12 months to June 2018 by £71m to £380.7m, a figure the club could now overhaul following their European run this season.
Spurs beat Man City on the away goals rule after a modern classic on Wednesday ended with a 4-3 defeat and 4-4 aggregate score to secure a berth in the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club “have been sniffing around” an in-form number 10 to replace Christian Eriksen.
