Study: Man United, Real Madrid soccer’s most valuable clubs
Close behind were: Barcelona ($3.1 billion), Bayern Munich ($2.4 billion), Arsenal ($1.9 billion), Manchester City ($1.79 billion)
Accountancy firm KPMG says Manchester United and Real Madrid are soccer’s most valuable clubs, worth an estimated $3.2 billion.
The study finds Europe’s leading 32 clubs have a combined value exceeding 26 billion euros.
KPMG’s report was published as the European season reaches its climax with Saturday’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and crosstown rival Atletico Madrid, which is valued at 592 million euros.
United remains strong financially, despite not winning the Premier League in three years.
Behind Real and United in the rankings are Barcelona ($3.1 billion), Bayern Munich ($2.4 billion), Arsenal ($1.9 billion), Manchester City ($1.79 billion), Chelsea ($1.68 billion), Liverpool ($1.45 billion).
