In just three months into 2021, Deloitte has released their 2021 Football Money League, which shows the finances of the clubs which generated the highest revenue.
The latest report saw that the top 20 clubs, which are all based in Europe, were able to accumulate a combined €8.2 billion during the 2019/20 campaign.
This shows that there is a 12% decrease when compared to the previous season (€9.3 billion). That decrease can be attributed to the interference of the Covid-19 pandemic, which had a negative and terrible impact on broadcast and match day revenue – but also ultimately led to an increase in the commercial venue, just a predicted by best usa online casino sites ahead of time.
Catalan giants Barcelona came out on top as the World’s richest football club in 2021, according to the rankings from Deloitte, with only a slight margin ahead of their Spanish rivals Real Madrid despite a revenue fall of €125 million (£110m/$150m) to €715m (£628m/$861m) for the 2019/20 season.
The Spanish rivals both have a huge margin lead over the other clubs on the table, which they lead comfortably.
Third on the list is current World Champions Bayern Munich, as Manchester United appeared fourth as the richest English club. Following behind are United’s league rivals; Liverpool and Manchester City respectively. Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain takes the seventh position.
London giants Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur take up the eighth and ninth position respectively as Juventus was ranked tenth at the bottom first-half of the table. Two more Premier League appeared in the table as Arsenal were placed 11th while Everton was seen at the 17th position.
The remainder of the table featured the appearance of Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, Zenit Saint-Petersburg, Lyon, and other European clubs.
Barcelona’s reign as the richest club in the world has been blighted thanks to their overwhelming €1.2 billion (£1.1b/$1.5b) debt coupled with the fact that Lionel Messi, their superstar, is being paid €555 million (£491m/$674m) at the club, which is a lot as studied from machines a sous.
The Camp Nou outfit was reported to be owing to several clubs a total of €126 million (£112m/$153m) which was garnered from many transfer deals the club made over the years – transfer deals like Frankie de Jong, Arthur, Philippe Coutinho and others.
