KPMG's latest study of the leading teams in Europe, based on the 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaigns, "looked at the finances of 32 clubs based on their popularity on social media channels, aggregate operating revenues over three seasons, and success in European competitions", according to The Independent.

The clubs were then ranked according to "enterprise value", which "assesses how much it would cost to buy any given club or company as it includes a business’ total debt, with professional services firm KPMG using its own formula to reach these valuations".

Manchester United remain the most valuable club in Europe, according to the latest study, as they are said to be worth €3.25 billion (R48 billion), while Los Blancos follow with a value of €2.92 billion (R43.2 billion), ahead of Barcelona on €2.78 billion (R41.1 billion).

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are fourth on the list and valued at €2.55 billion (R37.7 billion), while 2017/18 Premier League winners Manchester City are fifth with €2.16 billion (R31.9 billion).
