Deloitte has released its latest list of the top 20 clubs on the planet in terms of the revenue they generated during the 2017-18 season.

The “Football Money League 2019” list sees six of the top 10 clubs come from the Premier League, with nine of the top 20 from the PL. That said, Manchester United slipped from first place to third in the list as their revenue rose by just two percent, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona jumping ahead of them into first and second respectively.

Liverpool had the biggest increase in revenue among the top 10, as it climbed by 25 percent and Chelsea’s revenue also increased a substantial amount, by 22 percent. Arsenal dropped three places to ninth in the rankings after they failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions but they remain just ahead of north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain joined the Spanish giants among the top 10, while the likes of Everton, West Ham and Newcastle United were also included in the top 20. The latter shows just how well Mike Ashley is running Newcastle, at least from a business standpoint…
