Brexit will knock Manchester United off top of world’s football rich list, Deloitte warns

Manchester United may be about to lose its coveted title of football’s richest club, as a result of Brexit. According to the Football Money League – an annual report compiled by the financial consultancy firm Deloitte – the Old Trafford club has this year regained its position as the world’s highest revenue-earning club for the first time since 2003/04. But the glory could be short-lived. The latest version of the report released on Thursday warns it will likely be replaced by Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona next year.
