Calcio e Finanza are reporting that AC Milan’s qualification to the next round of the UEFA Champions League albeit with very slim chances would be hugely beneficial from a financial perspective.

Milan have already secured 15 million as the participation bonuses, 17 million for their historical ranking, 6 million from the market pool and 2 or so million in performance bonuses thus far.
