Man Utd raked in massive cash from Europa League glory

Manchester United raked in a fortune from winning the Europa League last season.

The Daily Mail says United's Europa League success earned the club £40 million as well as a crucial spot in this season's Champions League campaign.

Jose Mourinho's side, who were given the large sum by UEFA, landed a much higher fee than their rivals due to how TV rights money is distributed in England.

Fellow finalists Ajax, who were beaten 2-0 in thanks to goals by Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, were given just £14m despite playing the same amount of games.
