Real Madrid has 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. Photo Credit:Getty
