United take comfort from cash boost

ESPN FC's Ian Darke and Steve McManaman recap the poor season for the Red Devils and what Louis Van Gaal can bring to Old Trafford.

Manchester United received small consolation for surrendering their Premier League title to Manchester City by earning almost 30 million pounds more than when they lifted the trophy last year.

United end-of-season review
Liverpool lead payment table

United received 60.8 million pounds in winning the 2012-13 title and 89.1 million pounds in finishing seventh a year later as City triumphed for a second time in three years.

Thanks to the 5.5 billion pound broadcast deal, Cardiff earned more from finishing bottom of the standings this season than United earned as champions the previous campaign, the Premier League announced on Wednesday.

The Bluebirds received 62.08 million pounds in finishing 20th in their one-season stay in the top flight -- over 22 million pounds more than QPR did in finishing last in the 2012-13 season.

City earned 96.5 million pounds as champions -- almost 36 million pounds more than United's last term -- but second-placed Liverpool were the top earners with 97.5 million pounds as a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters.

Manuel Pellegrini's men appeared in 25 games broadcast in the UK by either Sky Sports or BT Sport, compared to Liverpool's 28.

Third-placed Chelsea, United and Arsenal also appeared in 25 live televised games and Cardiff were one of eight teams to appear in 10 live matches.

The season was arguably the most exciting in recent memory, with the lead changing hands 25 times and 1,052 goals scored alongside a record stadium occupancy of 95.9 percent.

The total dividends paid out to the 20 competing clubs was 1.56 billion pounds, compared to 972 million pounds the previous year. The ratio between the top and bottom earning club was 1.57:1.

The Premier League Founder Members' Agreement dictates 50 percent of UK broadcast revenue is split equally, 25 percent is paid in merit payments depending on the finishing position in the final table -- 1.2 million pounds was paid for every place -- and 25 percent is paid in facility fees each time a club's matches are broadcast, while all international broadcast revenue, and central commercial revenue, is split equally amongst the 20 clubs.

City received 24.72 million pounds for finishing first and facility fees of 19.68 million pounds; their predecessors as champions United earned 17.30 million pounds for finishing seventh and facility fees of 19.68 million pounds in a total of 89.1 million pounds.

The equal share was 21.6 million pounds (a rise of 63 percent on the 2012-13 value of 13.8 million pounds), overseas TV revenue was 26.29 million pounds and central commercial income of 4.27 million pounds to equal 31 million pounds (up 61 percent on the previous year).
