The Premier League is facing an uncertain future after the sale of their top players.
The club owners are expected to take a bigger stake in the clubs finances than they have in years, as part of a new television deal.
The clubs owners have agreed a new TV deal with Sky which will see the league pay them £50million per year until 2026.
This is an increase on the current deal which pays them around £35million per season.
It means that in 2019-20 the Premier League will pay out around £30m less than it did last season, with the new deal likely to see the bottom two teams pay out a combined £27m.
It will be a significant fall from the previous year, when the Premier Leagues highest paid players, Eden Hazard and Christian Benteke, both received around £50 million a year.
Hazard’s new deal is set to bring his salary up to £150,000 per week.
Benteki will be worth around £100,000 a week.
The Premier League are also expected to increase their commercial deals, with a deal to sell their shirt sponsor to Nike worth around a further £10m.
The deal will also see the club’s advertising revenue rise from around £25m in 2019/20 to £75m in 2020/21.
With the new TV contract and increased advertising revenue, the Premier leagues salary cap will also rise from £200,000 to £350,000.
This means that the Premier league will be able to sign players for around £200 million, compared to last season when they signed a player for £100 million.
