💰 Manchester United and Chelsea will face a huge financial hit if they miss out on Champions League qualification

Manchester United and Chelsea face could face a huge financial hit if they fail to qualify for Champions League on the final day of the season.

Both teams are in the top four heading into Sunday as Chelsea take on sixth-placed Wolves when United will be hosted by Leicester City who are currently fifth and who can also still finish as high as third.

United could miss out on £70million if they slip up today according to The Sun, with Champions League qualification worth £80m as opposed to the £30m you get for qualifying for the Europa League.

Apart from the Champions League windfall, United would also face a £20m cut from their deal with Adidas, with the biggest sponsors understandably likely to be keen for the clubs they represent to be playing at the very highest level.

On the other hand, according to the same reports, Chelsea could miss out on £50m if results don’t go their way.

United and Chelsea are currently level on points, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side above Frank Lampard’s men on goal difference.

Leicester is a point behind those two and a draw could be enough for them to get into the top four as long as Chelsea lose to Wolves.
