Understandably, Manchester United have made less revenue, comparatively from last season. Having generated 676 million last year, they have a cut in their income by 10 million. On the other hand, Real Madrid who won their Champions League for the third straight time are the most with most funds from last season.
Their arch-rivals Barcelona have climbed a spot up with the signings of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho. Besides these two signings, the La Liga and Copa Del Rey triumph was another reason for generating extra money.

Right from 2014, they have made at least one signing with an enormous reputation in the summer transfer window. Angel Di Maria, Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, and Romelu Lukaku have helped, but the failure to land has silverware has taken a blow at Old Trafford. They slip up to third.
Bayern Munich have always been amongst the Europe elites. The German outfit stay fourth, but they were able to pump another 50 million extra this term. With football leaks getting involved, Manchester City did not have much impact this season.
They do have more money compared to last season, but if any other side had achieved that foot, the income would have rocketed. Paris Saint Germain have not performed to their best in the Champions League, but the Neymar factor, Ligue 1 and the French domestic competitions were enough to seal one spot above than last season.
Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final and TV income helped them with the summer acquisitions of Alisson Becker and Fabinho. There is an increase of 90 million in the revenue.
London clubs Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur occupy the last three places in the revenue list. Juventus slip down to eleventh place.
