The magazine said on Wednesday it lists Barcelona second at $3.16bn, a 1% drop, followed by Manchester United at $3.1bn, a 10% rise. Bayern Munich are fourth at $2.35bn after a 27% increase.

Manchester City ($1.38bn) are fifth, followed by Chelsea ($1.37bn), Arsenal ($1.31bn), Liverpool ($982m), Juventus ($837m) and Milan ($775m).
