It’s better than Chelsea’s deal because we’re not tied in for 15 years. So next year we’ll have an extra £40m from Emirates and Adidas plus the shirt sleeve sponsorship giving an extra £10m compared to last season. If we make top 4 we’ll have even more.
If I'm using your figures correctly, these new deals have effectively covered the loss of CL revenue (which is around 50M). I'm not even taking into account EL income which whilst not being close to CL income, is still a decent amount, especially if you can get to the Semis.
If we can qualify for the CL this year, we absolutely have to go on a spending spree. No excuses.
