You'd be bitching for a year if it happened to Liverpool. Despite being like 1 cent for your billionaire owner.
Does that include related party sponsorships or?
Even ignoring that, Liverpool's ownership put in less than half City's according to that so seemed an odd image to post as some sort of 'trump'.
other way around. silverlake bought 10% of shares in the city football group in 2019, and mubadala invested in silver lake in 2020.It wont include anything Abu Dhabi investment fund related. Ie the majority of commercial revenue.
Wont include the 500m invested by silverlake either which by a total coincidence happened not long after abu dhabi invested 2 billion into silver lake itself.
I'm guessing EPL and Champions League TV rights money, ticket sales and memberships, merchandise sales, maybe some transfer profits.
On a related point, nice cash cow for the Glazers, eh?
I'm not sure why Madrid aren't slight favourites. Seen the teams they knocked out v who Liverpool knocked out. Definitely had the harder run to the final and came through each hurdle. PSG then Chelsea then City.Particularly with Benzema. He’s kind of made the champions league his playground this season, like Ronaldo used to in years past.

Did you watch the games, or just look at the score lines? I don't think anyone felt like Madrid were a better side than any of the teams that they knocked out. Fair play to them for getting through, no doubt they're going to be a really tough opponent and they very well may win - but I don't think anyone should be surprised Liverpool are favourites.
Looking at who the respective teams knocked out is an incredibly simplistic way of evaluating the teams.
But.. they got through. The point is they find a way to win despite the superior sides they faced.
And when has the side which is generally regarded as superior, not been made the favourites by bookmakers? Never. I'm not saying it's not valid to think Madrid win, they very well may - but it's a bizarre take to be surprised they aren't favourites.
