Fulham returned to the Premier League after a four-year absence as Tom Cairney scored the victor in a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Championship playoff final at Wembley on Saturday, the richest game in world football.
That figure rises to £280m if the winners survive just one season in the Premier League, according to BBC Sport.
But they defended heroically to end the club's four-year exile from the Premier League.
"I came to a team who played the football that is really good for me and my ability", he said.
But he added: "We must adapt ourselves".
"The Premier League is the best and most competitive league, and we must be clever".
"We've shown all season we are one of the most stylish teams in the Championship", said their manager, Slavisa Jokanovic. After representing his country at u21s level, Targett could even push himself into the reckoning for the senior team with regular Premier League game-time.
"My initial thought, and (technical director) Steve Round agreed with me, was, "we've got to stop the rot here and just keep the club in the Championship", would you believe".
"The beginning of the season we had to find a solution for his knee problem, but when he came back he played like we remember last season". Jokanović quickly reinforced the back line, but Villa re-launched their attack, and we were all perched on the edge of our seats.
"It's about taking these friendlies as seriously as we can and making sure we have a point to prove, that we feel we should be there".
Captaining his side yet again, the 27-year-old was a key component in the midfield battle up against tough opposition in Robert Snodgrass, Mile Jedinak and Conor Hourihane.
The Fulham manager fielded an energetic front three of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ryan Sessegnon and Aboubakar Kamara, none of whom are older than 23, in their 2-0 semi-final victory over Derby County last week.
Liverpool have got their summer off to a flying start by signing Fabinho and Naby Keita, and their fans have been quick to stick the boot into United after the Grealish links emerged.
