Spanish giants Real Madrid have been named as the world’s most valuable football clubs.
The Los Blancos have topped the Forbes’ fresh list and are valued at $5.1 billion — $350 million more than last year, so Madrid’s worth has gone up by 8 percent.
Meanwhile, Madrid’s arch-nemesis Barcelona are second on the list, valued at just $100 million less than reigning European champions.
Interestingly, neither Manchester City ($4.25B), nor Paris Saint-Germain ($3.3B), made it to the top 5, despite being owned by Sheikhs rather than club members, as in the case of La Liga sides.
Manchester United ($4.6B) and Liverpool ($4.45B) rank 3rd and 4th respectively.
Bayern Munich (4.26B) complete the top five most valuable football clubs.
