It is currently the sport that is most betted on, according to the site newbettingoffers.co.uk, it often makes the front and back pages of newspapers and social media is usually inundated with football talk.

So who are the top 10 richest clubs in the world?

Tottenham Hotspur- €406.2m

The North London side are ahead of the game with their new stadium and it is starting to show in the profits. Spurs, as they are known, are very shrewd with their transfer business which helps with profits.

With the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min as big commodities, Spurs are able to bring in big attendances week in week out.

Juventus – €433.5m

The Old Lady is one of the most established clubs in Serie A and the world. The Turin side have the most Serie A titles in Italian history and are often providing the bulk of the Italian national side.

The iconic black and white striped shirts are noticed immediately and shirts are sold all over the world. Being sponsored by Adidas and Jeep really helps with the club posting huge profits.

Chelsea – €493.1m

Another London club makes the list and this time it is the blue side of London. Chelsea have been known as the rich team in London since 2003 when they were taken over by Roman Abramovich.

Since he sold the club following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Todd Boehly has continued the typical spending of Chelsea. He bought the club for £4.25 billion.

Liverpool – €550.4m

The most successful club in English history come in at number seven. With Liverpool’s upturn in fortunes in recent years and winning the Premier League in 2019/20 season has helped establish themselves amongst many other countries.

Fans around the world know of Liverpool and with great commodities like Mo Salah and the manager Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool attracts a lot of hype.

PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) – €556.2m

The French side have the ability to have billions pumped into them, thanks to their Qatari investors,  and they are well known to pay big transfer fees and wages for their players.

With the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and world record signing Neymar, PSG are a force to be reckoned with in France but have failed on the European stage. If they win the Champions League they will more than likely shoot up the standings of the richest clubs in the world.

Manchester United- €558m

The Red Devils are the gold standard in English football in terms of merchandising and profit making. They are a financial force, even with the disgraceful ownership of the Glazer family, but things have not been right for them on the pitch for a while.

United owners have been able to sign the biggest names for financial success in recent years which the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria, Paul Pogba and Radamal Falcao all signed for their name rather than them contributing to the style of play the manager was going for.

Barcelona- €582.1m

This is a surprising entry because of the economical problems the Catalan club have faced but they are still up there with the richest clubs in the world. Everything was taken into account like transfers, TV rights, player contracts and sponsorship deals.

The Nou Camp is also one of the most iconic stadiums in the world with people visiting it all the time for games and tours.

Bayern Munich – €611.4m

The German giants are unrivalled in the Bundesliga. They have won the league for the past 10 seasons and it looks like they will win it again this year.

The club is able to sign essentially any talent in Germany but also attract huge names from Europe such as Sadio Mane, Matthijs de Ligt and Lucas Hernandez.

Real Madrid – €640.7m

The most followed club in the world is quite clearly Los Blancos and they are quite possibly the most successful side in Spain. Real Madrid are able to post profits every single year due to their value, popularity and success.

Having experienced years of Galacticos, the current Champions League winners are in a great era financially and in footballing terms also.

They are currently 2nd in La Liga but will be hoping for a good second half to the season to help keep the riches coming in.

Manchester City- €644.9 million

The richest club in the world in 2022 is the English Premier League Champions. The Blue side of Manchester have enjoyed lots of success in recent year and that shows no sign of slowing down.

The Abu Dhabi United Group have created a dynasty with Manchester City and with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland in their ranks they have an amazing chance of posting even more profits.

City are 2nd in the league but will be looking to their experience to make it their 7th Premier League title (9th league).
