Pep Guardiola’s side can add an extra £3.67m if they retain their title at Wembley in June and then win the Uefa Super Cup for the second year running – taking their potential European earnings to £137.21m.

But French giants Paris Saint-Germain will be Europe’s top pre-season earners under a new calculation system agreed by Uefa’s top brass.

The revamped competition, with 36 teams in the expanded Champions League, will be worth a total of £372m more to participating clubs from next season.

That sees the round by round prize fund increase from maximum earnings of £72.9m per club to £94.9m.

The new system will see all teams play eight opponents – with four games at home and four away – to create a “final” table.

The team top of that table will collect £8.6m, in addition to their starting bonus of £15.9m and £1.8m for every league stage win.

Further bonuses for each stage reached in the competition – with the top eight teams in the table going straight through to the last 16 and the clubs ranked ninth to 24th playing off to join them – boost the performance prize fund by 43.4 per cent to a total £1.35billion.

But City will also benefit from a new calculation for the remaining £730m available to the clubs, which sees the previous “TV market pool” and controversial “coefficient” calculations merged together.

It sees around 80 per cent of the remaining cash distributed by a calculation of performances in European football over the past five seasons and the size of the individual TV pot paid by broadcasters in each nation.

TNT Sport are paying £305m per season for live coverage of all but 17 of the 189 matches, with Amazon Prime screening the others – the first pick of Tuesday games – and highlights on BBC for the first time.

But the total of those deals are thought to be slightly under the £411m per year cable outfit Canal+ are paying for rights in France.

It means PSG will take the biggest share of that pot – £30.9m – followed by City on £30.1m and Liverpool, assuming they finish in the Prem top four, on £29.2m.

If Arsenal, Tottenham or Manchester United qualify, they will all take in excess of £23m from that pot.

The remaining approximate 20 per cent will be determined by a 10-year ranking of European performances, although no longer including bonus points for past title wins.

City are certain to be third in that list – behind Real Madrid and Bayern Munich – earning a further £7.3m.

Liverpool are set to pick up £6.23m from that pot for a total “value pillar” share of £35.43 compared to City’s £37.28m.

The new prize fund, though, means clubs will earn LESS money per game than under the current system even if the gross figure is higher.
