Real Madrid top football rich list for 10th straight year

Real Madrid has matched its 10th triumph as champions of Europe by topping the Deloitte football rich list for a 10th straight year.

Manchester United moves up from fourth to second on the list, which is based on season 2013-14 revenues.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain filled the next spots.

English clubs Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool were placed sixth to ninth, all of them showing healthy rises in revenues.

Tottenham were in 13th spot, while there were new entries for Newcastle United and Everton at 19th and 20th.

The total combined revenue for the top 20 richest clubs rose by 14% to €6.2bn, the report found. The list only looks at revenues accrued and does not take into account club debts.

Real Madrid, which won its so-called "Decima" European Cup/Champions League after beating city neighbours Atletico 4-1 last May, saw revenues of €549.5m (£459.5m, at average exchange rate for the year ending 30 June 2014).

The club saw revenue growth of €30.6m, from increases of 8% and 9% in broadcast and commercial revenues respectively.
