PSG Overtake Man City As Most Richest Club In The World

Paris Saint-Germain have overtaken Manchester City as the most financially powerful club in world football, according to the annual Soccerex Football Finance 100 report.
But the report makes sorry reading for Manchester United, who have dropped down eight places, out of the top 10 and below Liverpool for the first time.

Bayern Munich are third and Real Madrid fifth, while Tottenham are a surprising name coming in at fourth in the list.

The clubs are rated by a football finance index score, which is based on the value of the current squad, tangible assets, finance available in their accounts and potential owner investment and net debt.

The analysis is based on balance sheets and annual reports published by clubs as well as sources from as far afield as UEFA, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Yahoo Finance, Forbes, Transfermarkt and Hooevers. This edition analyses the financial year 2017-18.

The report ranks the financial potential of each club and develops a methodology that looks at the performance of clubs in the five key variables, weighted against that variable's percentage of the accumulative total, thereby giving an FFI score.

PSG top the list with an FFI score of 5.318. They and second-placed Manchester City (5.197) are way ahead of the chasing pack.
