*Note – The table is not in order*

Manchester City is the most valuable club in the world but has not been the richest since the domination of Newcastle United’s owners in 2021. The future Man City owners can make a total profit of €40 million.

Manchester United’s future owners will have to deal with a loss of €100.3 million following the club’s purchase, if possible. The same goes with Newcastle United as someone wishing to buy the club will have to deal with a loss of €32.8 million.

Someone wishing to buy Barcelona will gain an enormous profit of €346.2 million which in turn can be used to buy players. Liverpool has got the second most expensive squad in the world after Man City and their future owners will have a staggering profit of over €250 million.

The rest you can see all by yourself in the table. European giants like Real Madrid, Arsenal, PSG and have got a huge squad value but their purchase value is less than that.
