Real Madrid knock Man United off top of world football rich list
Real Madrid have taken over from Manchester United at the top of the Deloitte Football Money League.
Champions League winners Madrid made record revenues of €750.9 million (£674.6m) in 2017-18 as United slipped to third place behind Madrid's rivals Barcelona, who generated revenues of £648.3m. United made £676.3m.
Madrid's victory over Liverpool in May brought them a third successive Champions League title, while Barcelona's rise to second made it the first time two La Liga teams have occupied the top spots since 2014-15.
It is the 12th time in 22 editions of the list -- which does not take club debts into account -- that Madrid have ended up on top.
The top 10 includes six Premier League clubs, a new record, while the overall revenue of the top 20 clubs increased by six percent to reach a record £7.4 billion.
Premier League champions Manchester City, with £503.5m, maintain a place in the top five, with Liverpool (£455.1m) seventh after their Champions League run, Chelsea (£448m) eighth and Arsenal (£389.1m) down to ninth after missing out on a place in the Champions League.
Tottenham (£379.4m) return to the top 10 for the first time in more than a decade.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are sixth after the arrival of world-record signing Neymar helped their revenues grow, with German champions Bayern Munich in fourth.
