And along with the rest of Europe’s elite, they are facing a cash blow.

European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli confirmed on Tuesday that the continent’s biggest sides and UEFA have agreed to pay back a total of £519million to its broadcast partners.

“We are looking at top revenue decrease of approximately €4billion in the next two years and according to FIFA, 90 per cent of those top-line losses will be borne by clubs.

“We have seen very important rebates to the principal broadcasters both at domestic level and at international level.

“We have seen a £330million rebate in the Premier League, we have seen a downturn in the Bundesliga domestic rights of about €200million, we are in the process of finalising the account with UEFA with a reduction of around €575million (£519m) for the international club competitions, and that is all money that is normally distributed.
