Real Madrid’s promising Champions League campaign came to a devastating end, as the reigning European champions suffered a 5-1 aggregate loss at the hands of Manchester City.

The two had drawn 1-1 in the first leg, but Real Madrid were completely outclassed by the English champions at the Etihad, as they succumbed to a 4-0 defeat.

Despite their elimination from the UCL, though, Real Madrid have earned the second-highest revenue from the competition so far this season.

According to Swiss Ramble, the Spanish giants have secured a whopping €118 million from UCL this season, only behind Manchester City, who have earned €127 million. The data put out by the source likely adds revenue earned from TV streaming and stadium as well.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are third and fourth respectively, gaining a total of €107 million and €104 million. Meanwhile, Inter Milan, despite qualifying for the final, are fifth with a revenue of €100 million.

Real Madrid’s arch-rivals FC Barcelona are 12th with €69 million despite being eliminated from the group stages.

A report from Diario SPORT points out that Real Madrid could have earned even more revenue if they had secured a ticket to the final. As per the report, qualifying for the final itself may have added €15.5 million into the coffers.

If Los Blancos had become champions, they would have earned an additional €4.5 million. Hence, the club’s elimination from the semifinal has led to a loss of around €20 million, which could have been useful in helping the club pursue their top targets this coming summer.

The figures could have been even higher considering the fact that the report had only mentioned the prize money. The club could have earned an additional fortune through ticket sales, streaming and sponsorships.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
