Manchester United Finish 2nd… Real Madrid leapfrog Manchester United to become the most valuable football club in the world while Barcelona drop to fourth [Daily Mail]

Maybe the Glazers and the Board will finally wake-up because the ground is literally cratering around us…if we don’t have a massive summer for transfers, we’ll be left in the dust!

Real Madrid have been named as the world’s most valuable club, ending Manchester United‘s three-year stay at the summit.

Despite not enjoying much success on the pitch domestically, Los Blancos reaped the rewards for their dominance in Europe having won three successive Champions League trophies.

According to the latest edition of Football Clubs’ Valuation: The European Elite, as prepared by KPMG, Real are valued at £2.9billion, ahead of United’s £2.83bn. 

Below Real and United, Barcelona (£2.41bn) surprisingly dropped out of the top three most valuable clubs to fourth with their brand value taking a hit due to lack of success in Europe.

This left German giants Bayern Munich (£2.43bn) to take up the final podium position.

The next five spots are taken up by Premier League sides with Manchester City (£2.2bn), Chelsea (£2bn), Liverpool (£1.9bn), Arsenal (£1.8bn) and Tottenham (£1.5bn) completing the top nine.

Spurs’ remarkable financial performance this season saw them leapfrog Juventus (£1.3bn) into ninth while they also registered record levels of pre-tax profit along with their opponents in the Champions League final, Liverpool.
