Real Madrid dethroned as world’s most valuable club in latest ranking.

Latest statistics released by Forbes magazine say that Real Madrid has been overtaken by American NFL’s Dallas Cowboys as the world’s most valuable sports team.

La Liga rivals Barcelona is just a spot behind on the list with a value $3.55 billion (€3.20 billion).
On Most Valuable Sports Club, Manchester United was the next football club ranked — fifth overall — with a value of 3.32 billion (€2.99 billion).
Rounding out the other football clubs was Bayern Munich at No. 12 ($2.68bn, €2.41bn), Arsenal at No. 23 ($2.02bn, €1.82bn), Manchester City at No. 28 ($1.92bn, €1.73bn), Chelsea at No. 36 ($1.67bn, €1.50bn), and Liverpool at No. 41 ($1.55bn, €1.40bn).
