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.
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.
