Real Madrid lost eight sponsors this season, which could correlate with the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, and as a consequence, Los Blancos sit far behind FC Barcelona and Manchester United when it comes to sponsorship income.

The European Sponsorship Association recently published a report analysing the sponsorship landscape in Europe's top five leagues based on a study by CSM Sport & Entertainment.

The research uncovered 2 289 sponsorship deals, involving 1 606 companies in 55 different sectors, resulting in an overall investment of €4.043 billion (R66.3 billion).

United lead the ranking with an income of €279 million (R4.58 billion) from 68 different sponsorship deals, followed by Barcelona, who receive €261 million (R4.28 billion) from 43 deals.

German giants Bayern Munich complete the podium with 29 sponsorship deals worth €180 million (R2.95 billion), while Los Blancos sit in fourth place with an income of €178 million (R2.92 billion) from just 19 deals.

According to the report, Real have lost as many as eight sponsors this season, which correlates with the departure of club-record goalscorer Ronaldo, although it is unclear whether or not the superstar's exit had anything to do with the drop in sponsors.
