Wow. A possible doubling of the deal from next season.

Quite what that means for the Prem deal later this season is astonishing, though Amazon appear not to be bidding, though the very thought of that may mean a staggering deal.

Sky's rebranding has shown their cards, and with the pending takeover they must win the rights to the PL - I imagine the plan was for the takeover to be done before the bidding. it could be towards the 10bn mark. Expect this to go on transfer fees rather than wages
