The Reds received £22.8m for finishing second in the Premier League, and a further £77m from TV revenue.

The total amount received is £1m more than Premier League winners Manchester City, due to Liverpool’s share of the TV revenue being higher as they were shown live more than times than City.

It’s also a huge increase on the £54.8m Liverpool received in TV revenue last season, and vastly more than last year’s title winners Man United received (£60m).

The increased revenue across the board this season is due to the new TV deal which began this year, with the Premier League’s broadcast rights being sold for £3.018bn.

Numerous reports recently have indicated that Brendan Rodgers will be given £60m to spend this summer, plus any money raised by sales of players.

Liverpool could splash some of that money this week, with reports suggesting a £20m bid for Southampton and England midfielder Adam Lallana.

    liverpool has outspent United and Arsenal in the last 22 years.

    FSG has spent more money than anyone else in Liverpool’s history in first 3 years. The impact of FSG on Liverpool has been immense. They have already permitted 78% of what Benitez spent to be spent by Rodgers.

    Under FFP you can`t just pull money from owners pockets. A lot of this money made this year will not end up as profit, but rather just help balance the books. We have a big outlay and currently have lost 90mil in two seasons. That shows how big our outlay is. The improved profits and new deals will go someway to leveling out our books.

    OMG! do you actually understand how companies work? This 99mil isn`t all new profit from out of nowhere. there might be a extra 30mil in that 99mil which we didn`t have last season. The club rather unsuprisingly doesn`t run on thin air. Have a look over the books, see the loses the club makes, then come back.
