Manchester City made history on Sunday by becoming the only team to win the Premier League in four consecutive seasons.

Third-placed Liverpool is set to earn £55.9m, all the way to the team that finishes rock bottom in this case Sheffield United, who take home ‘pocket change’ of £3.1m. Enough for Wilder to buy a few sandwiches at least.

Meanwhile, after leading Manchester City to a historic fourth EPL crown in a row, Pep Guardiola then hinted next season could be his last.

This is Guardiola’s sixth crown in his eight seasons in Manchester, and the  Spanish manager admitted he may call it a day when his contract expires 12 months down the line.

And Guardiola, 53, revealed he spent last summer wondering whether he had the motivation to go again after City had won the Treble.

Asked about his future amid Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool exit, said: “The reality is I am closer to leaving than staying. We have talked with the club — my feeling is that I want to stay now.

“So I will stay next season and during the season we will talk. But eight or nine years? We will see.”

There has become an unspoken acceptance among fans that Guardiola will not sign another contract when this one has run its course.

The eight years he has been in Manchester is already double his previous longest reign as boss of Barcelona.

And he did reveal there were moments following the Champions League win over Inter Milan last term when he doubted if he could lift himself again.

After pipping Arsenal to this year’s title by two points, Guardiola added: “I had that feeling last year, thinking, ‘It’s over, I am finished, what is left?’

“Then I thought, ‘I am here, OK’ and we started playing and winning games, there were new players and I started thinking of four in a row.

“Now four in a row is done so I think, ‘What next?’ Well, no team has done back-to-back league and the FA Cup.

“But next season I do not exactly know what will be the motivation — it is difficult to know until everything is done.”

City’s dominance has come alongside being hit with 115 Financial Fair Play charges with the hearing still to be heard.
