According to Forbes, Real Madrid was the most valuable club in the world in

2022 with a value of $6.07 billion (£4.9bn).

The Spanish juggernauts topped the 30-club list prepared by the American business magazine for a second consecutive year, with Manchester United coming in second with a $6 billion (£4.8 billion) valuation.

Barcelona, the LaLiga winners and top-ranked team in 2021, is ranked third with a valuation of $5.51 billion (£4.4 billion).

Two clubs have hit the $6 billion threshold for the first time on this year's list. Madrid's worth increased by 19% in the last year, while United's increased by 30%.

According to Forbes, the Spanish team has advanced to five of the most recent nine lucrative Champions League finals, winning each one.

"As part of a 20-year agreement, Real Madrid has also secured nearly $400 million from Sixth Street and Legends to boost revenue at its Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, which has been undergoing a significant renovation and is anticipated to be finished next year."

Only Madrid and United have consistently finished in the top five since Forbes started providing yearly club valuations in 2004.
