Manchester United is the Premier League team with the highest value.
Manchester United is the most valuable Premier League team, according to Forbes. The Glazers’ financial status will likely be impacted by whether or not the Red Devils are acquired this summer, depending on whether the Glazers sanction a full sale. The Red Devils have been rated as the second-most valuable team in Europe.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim are the two leading contenders to purchase the team, with the latter seeking a full sale to finance numerous prospects at Old Trafford, both on and off the field.
The owner of INEOS, Ratcliffe, shares the same objectives but is open to allowing the Glazers to retain some of their equity.
The value of the asset that the interested parties are negotiating for was revealed by Forbes on Wednesday, when it was estimated that United was worth £4.9 billion, an increase of 30% from the previous year’s estimate.
Once again, Real Madrid is at the top of the list, albeit by a slim margin because of a 19% increase in valuation to £4.9 billion. Two teams’ valuations have crossed the $6 billion (£4.8 billion) mark for the first time.
Barcelona is the only other Spanish team to make the list and holds the third spot courtesy to their La Liga victory. The top 10 is dominated by Premier League sides. Liverpool is then valued at £4.2 billion despite not adding any more titles to their collection this year, with treble-chasing Manchester City trailing closely behind at £4 billion.
Bundesliga powerhouses Bayern Munich are next, with a club valuation estimated at £3.9 billion. On the final day of the season, Bayern Munich almost missed reclaiming their league title.
Paris Saint-Germain, with £3.4 billion, is rated seventh on the list, just ahead of Chelsea (£2.5 billion). In May, Todd Boehly purchased the Stamford Bridge team for an estimated £4.25 billion when Roman Abramovich was forced to sell his properties.
The American will be hoping to increase his investment in the squad and Mauricio Pochettino’s plans so that his team will be worth more in 2024.
London’s Arsenal (£2.2 billion) and Tottenham (£1.8 billion), who narrowly missed making the top 10, round up the top 10. The owners of both clubs have made investments in their teams over the previous few years without hesitation, despite the possibility that they could see themselves falling behind Newcastle as a result of the latter’s unexpected success.
The Magpies’ value has increased by 51% to £640 million since the Saudi Arabians purchased them, and the new owners are eager to deploy their riches to ensure that championships can be brought back to St James’ Park in the future.
