Manchester United has been named Europe’s most valuable club.

The club overtook Real Madrid which slipped to second on the top 10 list.

The analysis just released by KPMG, shows there were six sides from England’s top-flight in the top ten, up by one as Tottenham joined United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.

It predicts that Premier League’s dominance will increase further next year as the current report, analysing latest publicly-available financial statements, has yet to include the impact of a bumper new TV broadcasting deal starting in 2016/17.

Manchester United estimated “enterprise value” rose by 7% to €3.1bn taking it ahead of Real Madrid after the two teams shared first place last year.

The accounting measure assesses how much it would cost to buy a club or company, including its total debt.
