Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man United top Deloitte Football Money League

Real Madrid top the Deloitte Football Money League for an 11th consecutive year, with revenue of €577 million confirming the Spanish giants' status as the world's richest football club.

Despite a treble-winning 2014/15 campaign, Barcelona are playing second fiddle to their Spanish rivals.

Financial services company Deloitte said that Real’s club revenue was €577m ($629m) in 2014-15, boosted by a €22.7m increase in commercial sales. Match-day income also rose by €9.1m, although broadcast revenue slipped by €4.3m. The combined revenue figure for the 20 clubs named in the Money League increased by eight per cent to €6.6bn.

Barcelona shifted up two places to second with revenue of €560.8m, with Manchester United slipping one place to third with €519.5 after a marginal rise of €1.5m. French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain edged up one place to fourth with sales of €480.8m, with German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich falling two places to fifth with revenue of €474m.

Notably, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal were all non-movers in the top 10, while Barcelona and Manchester United swapped places and Liverpool were the only newcomers.

England’s top-flight teams have never been richer. More than £5bn worth of contracts with broadcasters kicked in last season, leading to record revenue for all 20 clubs and an unprecedented global financial dominance.

Top 10 in full:
1 Real Madrid €577m

4. Paris Saint-Germain €480.8m
