Real Madrid

Real Madrid has topped the table of the world’s 20 richest football clubs, displacing Manchester United with record revenues of €750.9m (£674.6m).

Man Utd slipped to third with Barcelona making it the first Spanish one-two since 2014-15, said Deloitte.

Its Football Money League, based on season 2017-18, also shows the combined revenues of the top 20 clubs has risen 6% to €8.3bn (£7.4bn), a new record.

There were a record six English Premier League clubs in the top 10.

The list, the 22nd of its kind, only looks at revenues and does not take into account club debts.

This gap this year between the top two places was the second widest yet, with €60.5m between the leading pair.

Real Madrid won their third successive Champions League, beating Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev last May.

That helped raise income for Los Blancos, who have now topped Deloitte’s money league 12 times.

The club experienced commercial growth of €54.8m, including an increase in sponsorship and merchandising revenues, as well as exploitation of increasingly lucrative pre-season tour matches.

At €356.2m, Real Madrid now have the highest commercial revenue of any football club globally, contributing to those world-record revenues.

Dan Jones, head of Deloitte’s sports business group, said: “Real Madrid’s outstanding financial performance in 2017-18 is built on their long history of success on the pitch, most recently three consecutive Champions League titles.

“This has enabled the club to continue to drive commercial revenue as the appetite to partner with Europe’s most successful clubs remains stronger than ever.”

He said most of Deloitte’s top 10 of our top 10 were through to the round of 16 in this season’s Champions League and forecasting further revenue growth.
