Manchester United have retained their position as the highest revenue generating club in world football.

The prominent English football club narrowly pipped Real Madrid to remain the top revenue-generating club in the world as Premier League sides underlined their growing financial clout, Deloitte’s “Money League” report said on Tuesday.

United had a revenue of £581.2m in 2016/17 according to the 2018 Deloitte Football Money League.

That’s the most of any other football club in the world – but only just.

Real Madrid have the next highest revenue at £579.7m.

Barcelona have the third highest revenue (£557.1m) followed by Bayern Munich (£505.1m) and Manchester City (£453.5m).

The combined revenue for the world’s 20 richest clubs grew 6% to £6.9billion (€7.9 billion) last season – a new record high.

A record 10 English clubs now help to make up the Deloitte Football Money League.

Arsenal have climbed above PSG to take sixth spot in the league while Chelsea and Liverpool take eighth and ninth respectively.

Bear in mind that United on Monday confirmed the signing of Chile striker Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in a deal that is expected to make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player.
