Manchester United top Forbes' Most Valuable Soccer Teams List for the first time in five years, with the club now worth £2.86bn.

The Europa League winners lead the way over La Liga rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid, who drop to third after winning a Champions League and La Liga double.

According to the US business magazine, Barcelona have a current value of £2.82bn and Real, who were ranked first for the past four years, are worth £2.77bn.


Rounding out the top five are Bayern Munich at £2.10bn and Manchester City, who have moved above Arsenal, at £1.61bn.

Six Premier League teams feature in the top 10, with United, City and the Gunners joined by Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham. The other is Serie A giants and Champions League finalists Juventus.

United generated revenues of £593m during the 2015-16 season, some £60m more than both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

They are also by far the most profitable football club in the world, posting operating income of £223m - £83m more than runners-up Real Madrid.

"Manchester United's return to the top spot is a testament to their powerful brand and marketing acumen," said Mike Ozanian, assistant managing editor at Forbes Media.

The Premier League's growing financial muscle is highlighted in the latest study of leading European clubs by KPMG

Means football when you have a useless manager.

And we still can't afford to buy more players in the transfer window, when we actually need it.

We can buy players in any window. Just maybe not the right quality players...?

Bruno Fernandez, Hakim Ziyech, van de Beek, Thomas Partey, Jadon Sancho, Gareth Bale, Rabiot, Tielemans, Lozano, Herrera that we let go for free. All those players were available for the taken. I am positive that the club did not want to spend money, there is no way you don't buy players when your midfield is dying and can't compete with the top 6 teams.

And now this!

Manchester United have announced their net debt has increased by almost £140m in their latest financial figures, even after posting another revenue increase for the first quarter of 2019-20.

The startling increase in debt levels from £247.2m to £384.5m, a rise of 55.5 per cent, will do little to appease disgruntled fans, unhappy with the way the club is run by the Glazer family owners and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

United have posted revenues of £135.4m for the first quarter of 2019-20 which represents a £400,000 increase on the same period for the previous year.
