Manchester City stand to pocket almost £300m if they complete the treble.
Pep Guardiola’s side have already banked £180m after winning the Premier League for the fifth time in six years. Next up is Saturday’s FA Cup against Manchester United at Wembley. Victory there will land City another £8m, reports the Mirror.
The Citizens will then go for the prize which has so far alluded them when they tackle Inter Milan in the Champions League final. A win over the Italian underdogs will see City collect £110m.

Overall, it would be the biggest cash pot in the game’s history, making them an even stronger force in the transfer market, which they have used to such great effect during their era of dominance, which now looks set to expand across Europe.
That overall figure, secured in the space of a month, would also go over and above the £265million owner Sheikh Mansour paid for the club back in 2008, when City were regarded as a Premier League also-ran.

However, there is a cloud hanging over City amid 115 allegations that the club breached Premier League financial rules. Potential punishments, if found guilty, range from a fine to expulsion. That saga is set to drag on for months and possibly even years, with City adamant they have “irrefutable evidence” that they have played by the rules.
City were cleared by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in June 2020 after they appealed against UEFA’s decision to ban them from the Champions League and impose a £20million fine after ruling they had failed to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFS) rules.
Guardiola, who has two years of his contract left, has stressed he wants the Premier League charges dealt with as soon as possible.
“What I would like is if the Premier League and judges could make something as soon as possible, then if we have done something wrong everybody will know it,” he said.
“And if, we are like we believe as a club for many years, in the right way then the people will stop talking about that.”
