Man Utd fall from 2nd to 6th behind Madrid and Barcelona in Forbes most valuable teams list


Premier League giants Manchester United have fallen from second position to sixth in Forbes’ list of the world’s most valuable sports teams.

The Red Devils have tumbled four spots and are now behind Spanish giants Real Madrid (third) and Barcelona (fourth) who have retained their positions from 2018.

Five other football clubs make the top 50, they are Bayern Munich (17th), Manchester City (25th), Chelsea (32nd), Arsenal (42nd) and Liverpool(45th).

NFL side Dallas Cowboys have retained their spot at No.1 for the fourth consecutive with a value of $5billion.

Legendary baseball team New York Yankees ($4.6b) are second with basketball side New York Knicks ($4b) completing the top five of the list behind Real ($4.24b) and Barca ($4.02b).

More than half of the top 50 most valuable sports teams are from the NFL while NBA have nine teams in the list.

“On and off the field, in season and out of season, there is a small soap opera going on every day,” owner Jerry Jones told Forbes last year.

“Everyone knows that marketing, especially in this day and time, is just another way to promote the circus, so to speak.”
