Leicester City have won the Premier League with two games to spare, marking one of the greatest achievements in the history of sport. It’s 21 years since a team other than Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United have won the title and the Foxes fairytale story shows that you cannot always buy success. When the season kicked off in September, Manchester City’s squad was valued at £411 million. Leicester City won the Premier League this year despite having a squad worth a mere £53 million

 

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.
