Which are the world's richest football clubs in 2021?

Deloitte have published the 2021 Football Money League, which analyses the finances of the clubs which generate the highest revenue.

It was a 12 per cent decrease from the prior season(€9.3 billion) - no doubt owing to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, which impacted a fall in broadcast and matchday revenue - but also resulted in an increase in commercial venue.

Barcelona were named the world's richest football club in 2021 according to the Deloitte rankings, retaining a slight margin ahead of Spanish rivals Real Madrid despite having a revenue fall of€125 million (£110m/$150m) to €715m (£628m/$861m) in 2019-20.

They both hold a substantial lead ahead of the rest of the table, and dominate the table comfortably.

Bayern are ranked in third and are in front of Manchester United, named the richest English side.

They are followed immediately by the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, with Paris Saint-Germain slotting into seventh.

The top 10 richest clubs are dominated by fivePremier League clubs, including Chelsea and Tottenham, while Arsenal are placed at 11th in the table, with Everton 17th.

The rest of the table is rounded out by Borussia Dortmund, Inter, Atletico Madrid, Zenit Saint-Petersburg and other big European names.

Barcelona's status as the richest club in the world, however, has been overshadowed by their€1.2billion (£1.1b/$1.5b) debt alongside the revelation that Lionel Messi's salary is at€555 million (£491m/$674m).

The Catalan side were found to be owinga total of €126 million (£112m/$153m)to other clubs, which is rooted from several transferdeals that the club made over the course of several years - including deals for Phiippe Coutinho, Frenkie de Jong and Arthur.

You can view the full rankings with the total revenue (broadcast, matchday and commercial) below.
