Manchester United As The Most Valuable Football Club

Manchester United surpassed Real Madrid for the first time in the ranking of Europe’s 32 biggest clubs. It is estimated that the Europa League Champions is worth up to €3.2bn (£2.8bn), making them the first club to surpass the €3bn threshold. Compared last year, Manchester United only ranked equal with Real Madrid. They needed to continue to win silverware if they still wanted to remain at the top of the rankings.

Jose Mourinho obviously has taken this into account. In his first season, United won the Community Shield, League Cup, and the Europa Leaugue which is particularly a profitable triumph. In addition, United benefited from the first season of the Premier League’s record £8bn TV deal. This has helped raise other five English teams’ rankings into the 10 most valuable clubs.

Arsenal and Chelsea are valued at £1.7bn and £4.2bn respectively takes up sixth and seventh place. Liverpool valued at £1.1bn takes up eighth place whilst Manchester City valued at £1.7bn falls in fifth place.
