Liverpool set to be first club EVER to show more than €100m net profit
According to Inside World Football, Liverpool could become the first football club ever to post an annual net profit of more than €100million.
Last season Jurgen Klopp's side banked €81.3million thanks to their impressive European campaign that saw them reaching the Champions League final.
The club completed several major signings - Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Virgil van Dijk among them, but the report claims the costs are going to be spread over their contract lengths. Besides, the Reds earned around €130million from Philippe Coutinho's departure to Barcelona.

This is 9 years after the club was facing the risk of bankruptcy.
Liverpool have reportedly recorded a turnover of €364million in 2016-17 but it is expected to exceed €450million when the accounts are published by Companies House in March.
That being said, Liverpool are not just playing well, they are arguably the healthiest club finance-wise. Spending smart, offloading outcasts for more than reasonable price (do you remember how much Dom Solanke's transfer cost Bournemouth?) - Liverpool money issues show how finely balanced the Reds are these days.
