Spanish football club Real Madrid has topped an annual Forbes list of the world's most valuable sports teams.
Top 3 richest clubs: Real Madrid, Barcelona, and United.
It's been that way for years. Can see Utd dropping down that list if they dont hit the CL this year.
Chances are they will rise and close the gap on the Spanish clubs after this season. Mainly because their revenue will take another big jump regardless of Champions League money. United's two combined shirt deals were about £50m before this season, next season the Chevrolet and Adidas deal combine to earn them about £120m a season. Just from their shirts.....vastly more than even Madrid and Barca's deals. United still a huge money spinner for prospective commercial partners..
@Vulcan, you're back! Moyes leaves and you return, what a coincidence! I agree, but they better get CL football again this season. If they don't get into the CL, they won't attract top players and if that happens the deals will start to dry up.
