Premier League Dominates Football’s Rich List



When it comes to football finance, England reigns supreme. According to research conducted by Deloitte, five Premier League clubs are among the world’s top ten richest. Real Madrid have been named the wealthiest club in the world for the tenth consecutive year, boasting some €550 million in revenue, followed by Manchester United with €518 million.

United’s neighbours and fierce rivals Manchester City also make the top ten, as do fellow Premier League teams Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool. However, the top three was rounded off by Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich who brought in €487.5 million in revenue during the 2013/14 season.


The Premier League’s Record Breaking Transfer Window

In the world of English football, the last few hours of the summer transfer window are always packed with entertainment and drama as clubs rush to tie up last minute deals, often for inflated prices. This year, Premier League spending reached an incredible £835 million, smashing the previous record.

Transfer activity was also intense in Spain’s La Liga, though spending only reached £425 million, just over half that of England. Serie A was Europe’s third highest spending league with a mere £260 million. The catch of the day in England was unquestionably Radamel Falcao who joined struggling Manchester United for a £16 million season long loan deal from Monaco.
