Man United are the richest club in the world for the first time in 12 years

Manchester United are back on their perch.

Well, off the pitch, certainly.

While the Red Devils are only the sixth best team in England, they’ve officially been crowned the richest club in the world after the Deloitte rich list was published.


United recorded revenue figures of £515.m for the 2015/16 season, ahead of Barcelona in second and last year’s table-toppers Real Madrid in third.

It is the first time United have sat at the top of the rankings since the 2003/04 season and also the first time in 11 years Real haven’t been there.

Last season’s Premier League champions Leicester are one of eight top-flight teams in the top 20, generating a combined revenue of nearly £2.4bn.

Man City are fifth with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool between seventh and ninth.

Tottenham and West Ham are 12th and 18th respectively, ahead of the Foxes in 2oth.

United’s total season revenue is the highest ever recorded by a football club.
