Manchester United came in seventh on the Soccerex Football Finance 100, a study that ranks clubs by their financial clout. The power rankings, published on Wednesday, list the world’s top teams according to five factors, which include money in the bank, owner potential investment and debt, and fixed assets.

Credit Manchester United for topping the world in one of the categories- money in the bank (£307m), but they still finished behind three of their league rivals in measured financial firepower.


Here is the Soccerex top ten

1. Manchester City
2. Arsenal
3. PSG
4. Guangzhou Evergrande
5. Tottenham
6. Real Madrid
7. Manchester United
8. Juventus
9. Chelsea
10. Bayern Munich

Looking at the rest of the top 100 list, Liverpool came in 16th, while Leicester City ranked 20th. England also placed 12 more clubs in the top 100.


Soccerex marketing director David Wright said the aim of the Football Finance 100 was to show how the “global football landscape has shifted over the past two decades.”

“We wanted to create a broader evaluation of football finances, one that reflected the modern reality of football,” Wright said.
