Four Serie A clubs in richest 20

Juventus have retained 10th-place in Deloitte’s Football Money League, with Roma, Milan and Inter also in the top 20.

The Bianconeri have remained in the top-10 by growing revenue by 5 per cent since the last edition, having been in the top-five for the first 10 editions of the report.

Despite a drop in broadcast and matchday revenue, the Old Lady saw a €30m increase in commercial revenue thanks to their deals with Adidas and Jeep.

Juve’s revenue has increased from €195m in 2012 to €341m for 2016.

Roma are 15th have been ranked above Milan [16th] for the first time, largely through having reached the Champions League knockout stage.

Inter have also managed to climb one place, and are this year ranked 19th in the Football Money League.

However, Deloitte warns that “matchday revenue growth is still restrained” in Serie A, as there has been a lack of investment in stadia.

It’s therefore likely that both Milan clubs will drop out of the top 20 next year, when the new Premier League TV deal takes effect. Napoli were ranked 30th.

Manchester United have regained their place as the world’s richest club, pulling in a revenue of €689m for 2016, with 53 per cent of that coming from commercial revenues.
