According to the annual report, United enjoyed the top position by beating all European clubs in the last financial year after a 32 percent increase propelled them above the Los Blancos and the Catalan club.

English clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United ranked second and third in the UEFA report, with bottom-line profits of 44 million euros and 34 million euros respectively.

"The financial gap between the elite ones and the rest was increasing".

THE ENGLISH CHAMPIONSHIP was the third-most attended European league during the 2016-17 season, ahead of both the Spanish and Italian top flights.

In England the record for the level of wages is "Manchester United" - 321 million euros, which is 2.1 times more than the average salary of other clubs in the local Premier League.

Russian Federation was named the sixth most profitable European league for clubs, with a growth of 86 million euros observed over the past six years.

Revenues fell dramatically elsewhere, even in traditional football nations such as Holland (26.7m) and Portugal (20.3m).

UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin said, "As the guardians of the game, UEFA must ensure that football remains competitive even as financial gaps are augmented by globalisation and technological change".

UEFA analyst Sefton Perry said that "only a limited number of clubs are able to fully exploit the enormous commercial opportunities offered by the global market".

Unsurprisingly twelve English clubs feature in the top 30 revenue rankings, with Man City (sixth), Arsenal (seventh), Chelsea (eighth) and Liverpool (ninth) all in the top 10.

Bournemouth earned 99m euros, level with Inter who, along with Juventus, were the only Serie A sides in the top 20.

The report confirmed that transfer spending reached record levels of nearly $6.86 billion in the European summer of 2017, including six of the top 20 most expensive transfers ever recorded.
