Real Madrid Is Now The Richest Club In The World
Real Madrid Is Now The Richest Club In The World – Real Madrid have beaten Manchester United and rivals Barcelona to become the wealthiest club worldwide.
After winning a 3rd consecutive Champions League in May– to take their tally to 13– The Galacticos banked earnings of an impressive ₤ 659m in 2017-18.
That represented a rise of ₤ 60m from the previous year, when they had actually fallen narrowly behind United in the earnings list.
But with United’s latest figures showing a slight fall to £590m, to add to their on-pitch woes under Jose Mourinho – Real have streaked ahead of the Old Trafford club.
Barcelona, too, who reported figures of £602m, are above United and in second place.
But while the United has dropped off the pace set by Spain’s big two, they remain comfortably the best-placed English side.
While Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are yet to report their latest figures, they were all way adrift of United in 2016-17.
And United’s only real financial rivals, Manchester City, have already confirmed their revenues rose in 2017-18 from £463m to a club record £501m.
