With football effectively part sport, part entertainment industry and part business, the money that goes into the sport is quite astonishing. The predominant chunk of that money is due to the widespread popularity of club football in effectively every part of the world.
While the players do the talking on the pitch, backing them from a more administrative point of view are people who view this sport exclusively as a business. Consequently, the models on which these clubs are based on and are run are bound to make them worth a lot of money.
Football Daily has compiled a list of the top 10 richest football clubs in 2016 which consists of 5 English clubs, 2 from Spain, 2 from Italy and one from Germany.
