2017 Europa League champions, Manchester United have been confirmed as the leaders of the football money table for the 2016/17 season ahead of their two Spanish rivals after the top ten of the Deloitte Football Money League was revealed.
Despite a lack of Champions League football last season, the Red Devils managed to pip European champs Real Madrid to the top of the Deloitte Football Money League for last season. Current La Liga Champions, FC Barcelona are at the third position after selling talisman, Neymar to French side PSG for a record transfer fee of 222 million Euros last summer.
Paris Saint-Germain slipped to seventh as they were leapfrogged by Arsenal, despite a bank-busting year where they signed £195m Barcelona superstar Neymar.
However, the list does not include transfer fees, and if it did PSG and Barcelona would have taken the biggest hit.
German giants Bayern Munich still remains fourth from the previous edition after Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The table sees most of the Premier League giants in the top ten with Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal all in there.
Juventus is the only Italian side found in the top ten with Napoli placing 19th in the second ten.
Tottenham, Southampton, Everton and West Ham are all in the top 20 – which shows the power of the Premship’s new TV rights deal, which kicked in last season.
Manchester City have also significantly grown their revenue over the last 12 months from £392.6million to £453.5m as they look set to rein in Europe’s top four.
