“Numbers 1 and 2 haven’t won the Champions League.”
1NEWS – We see football is not only a game that entertains many people, but also becomes one of the most profitable businesses. There is a lot of money involved in football at the highest level.
Expenditures and income that continue to rotate between clubs along with the transfer of buying and selling players. This is where we see humans as being traded for their skills, whose price can fluctuate from time to time.
Don’t be surprised when lots of rich people want to buy clubs to turn them into businesses. Because, when you can manage club management well, at one time it can produce big results. Clubs and sponsors can grow quickly, and even have the opportunity for expansion.
During the pandemic, football clubs have been given primary checks regarding Covid-19. However, with each game’s revenue dropping unexpectedly, the club had to devise other plans to manage their finances. Even so, not many clubs have managed to get out of the financial crisis due to the pandemic.
However, the summer transfer window continues to accelerate drastically. We have seen many deals cross unexpected lines. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the five most valuable clubs in the world today.
5. Liverpool – 880 million euros (Rp 13.5 trillion)
Liverpool have had some wonderful seasons in recent times under Jurgen Klopp. The German coach led them to the Champions League title in the 2018/2019 season. Klopp also clinched their first league title in the Premier League era in the 2019/2020 season.

However, Liverpool had a somewhat forgotten form last season. They have been hit hard by long-term injuries to key players, such as Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez. Liverpool’s three mainstay attackers are arguably not as good as they were a few seasons before. Salah still does, but Mane and Firmino have struggled to rediscover their deadly partnership.
They don’t invest much in the summer either. Ibrahima Konate is their only signing this summer in a deal worth 40 million euros.
4. Chelsea – 882 million euros (Rp 14.9 trillion)
Since January 2021, Chelsea’s fortunes have changed drastically. The Blues have invested a lot in the summer of 2020. They brought in a lot of quality personnel. The likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech and Edouard Mendy all signed up for Stamford Bridge.
Although most of the players were unsuccessful, the team became much more organized after the appointment of Thomas Tuchel. The Blues won the Champions League for the 2020/2021 season. They signed Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan in a deal worth 115 million euros (Rp 1.9 trillion) this summer. They also added Saul Niguez to the midfield on loan and now have one of the strongest squads in Europe.
3. Manchester United – 937 million euros (Rp 15.8 trillion)
Manchester United continues to thrive under the control of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The sullen days under Jose Mourinho feel like a distant memory and the Red Devils boast one of the most star-studded squads in Europe right now.
United made three big signings this summer. They signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for 85 million euros (Rp 1.4 trillion). Raphael Varane has been signed from Real Madrid for 40 million euros (Rp 677.1 billion). They then broke into the internet by announcing the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus for 15 million euros (Rp 253.9 billion).
Manchester United are definitely title contenders in the Premier League this season. With stars like Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes putting on great footballing performances, we could be in for a season that will be filled with exciting performances from the Red Devils.
2. Paris Saint-Germain – 997 million euros (Rp 16.8 trillion)
Paris Saint-Germain has had a great summer transfer window. They already have a list featuring some of the best footballers in the world. By bringing in Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and several other top players will add strength to the team during this summer.
PSG’s bid for Champions League glory has kept them close, but they haven’t been able to seal a deal. After Kylian Mbappe survived, PSG are now the favorites to go deep in Europe’s elite competition.
Paris Saint-Germain is one of the richest and most resourceful football clubs in the world. They have shown a lot of ambition in recent years.
1. Manchester City – 1.04 billion euros (Rp 17.6 trillion)
Pep Guardiola has turned Manchester City into serial winners, but not cheaply. The Citizens have invested heavily in the transfer market to improve their squad. Man City also reap big profits.
Man City’s rise from a mid-table Premier League club to being the most valuable team in the world over the last decade and that is a bit of a shock. The club has supported Guardiola massively, but the club has yet to achieve their goal of winning the Champions League. They fought hard last season until the final.
However, unfortunately they lost to Chelsea. The reigning Premier League champions have now added Jack Grealish to their squad and are ready for a new challenge.
