Richest Clubs In The World
Five Premier League teams feature in the Deloitte's list of football's top 10 richest clubs in the world, the BBC reports.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are included with Real Madrid taking top spot for the eighth year running ahead of La Liga rivals Barcelona.
The rankings were compiled using data from the 2011/12 season and has Sir Alex Ferguson’s side as the top ranked English team in third spot with revenue streams of 396 million euros.
Local rivals City jumped from 12th to seventh, the joint biggest rise, with their Premier League triumph and a lucrative sponsorship deal ensuring their earnings rose from 286m euros from 170m euros on the previous season.
Chelsea occupy fifth place after their coffers were boosted thanks to success in the Champions League and the FA Cup, with Arsenal dropping down a place as a result, while Liverpool remain in ninth after a 30 million euros increase in their revenue despite a poor domestic campaign and failure to qualify for European football for the first time since 1999/2000.
