Man City could earn record prize jackpot with historic treble win
| Last updated
Manchester City are aiming to win the treble this season, and if they do so will bank an incredible record sum in prize money.
Manchester United are the only team to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in the same season, but 24 years after their remarkable achievement, neighbours City are looking to replicate the feat.
City are currently edging out a tightly-fought Premier League title race with Arsenal, while in the cup they have a Wembley showdown with United to look forward to.
Pep Guardiola's side are also looking to reach the final of the Champions League for a second time, after drawing 1-1 with Real Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final clash.
City currently sit one point ahead of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table, with four games left to play having played one less than the Gunners.
City's next league assignment is a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday. After that, they will take on Chelsea at home before travelling to Brighton and Brentford in their final two games.
A return of nine points from those final four outings would clinch a fifth Premier League crown in six years, and with it around £164m in prize money.
United will do their best to derail City's trophy hunt when the two rivals meet at Wembley on June 3 in the FA Cup final.
Should City get their hands on the trophy for only the second time during the Pep Guardiola era, then they would pocket around £3.9m.
If things go well in the semi-final second leg against Real Madrid next week, then City's final match of the season will be the Champions League final in Istanbul on June 10.
The Blues would face one of AC Milan or Inter Milan, and should they win that match, SunSport revealed that they would earn £117.2m.
Group-stage winnings this season, including the coefficient and initial prize money, mean City have already banked £69.6m.
The Etihad Stadium side then took a further £20.37m with victories in the last 16 and quarterfinals.
Should City reach the final they will take £9.6m of the remaining half of the market pool, as they would have appeared in 13 of the 39 matches involving English teams.
The prize money for winning the final would be around £17.63m, which would take their total Champions League earnings for the season to £117.2m.
Lifting the premier European trophy for the first time would also secure City a place in the new-look Fifa Club World Cup in 2025, worth an estimated £50m.
In total, clinching the treble this season would pocket City a whopping £285.1m.
