Manchester United
 has retained its status as the world’s richest club, with its value having soared by an estimated 20 percent, according to business publicationForbes.

United is now reportedly worth $2.24 billion after posting record figures following its run to last season’s Champions League Final.
Real Madrid is second with a turnover of $1.88 billion, a 29-percent rise, while reigning European and Spanish champion Barcelona is third on $1.31 billion, an increase of 34 percent.

In total five soccer teams are now estimated to be worth over $1 billion, with Bayern Munich and Arsenal making up the top five. And Forbes predicts that the nature of the Champions League competition will mean the rich continue to get richer.

Manchester United is worth more than $192 million more than the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys. The Red Devils have once again topped the Forbes list and is now valued at more than $2 billion, although Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are catching up quickly.
