The Soccerex Football Finance 100: PSG more powerful than City
The Soccerex Football Finance 100 ranks the top 100 clubs in terms of financial power and for the first time in three years, a Premier League side it not top.
París Saint-Germain (PSG) is the club with the most financial power in world football according to Soccerex Football Finance 100, an annual report by football business experts who rank the top 100 club's in the world financially.
In 2020's edition, the French club have recieved a rank of 5.318, which is higher than Manchester City's 5.197. It is the first time in the three-year history of the report that an English club is not in first place.
The position of both clubs at the top of the list is based on the fact that their owners come from the Middle East, who are worth billions. The Ligue 1 side has managed those finances better, however.
The main reason why PSG rank higher than Man City is because of their reduction of debt. They wiped €70 million from their debt while the Premier League side added €90 million to theirs. PSG, however, changed their cash reserve due to the sale of players, which added €316 million to the club's capital.
Soccerex Football Finance 100 has five keys to their ranking: value of players, tangible assets, bank balance, investment potential from the owner and net debt.
Europe continues to dominate financial report
LaLiga have 11 clubs represented in the table. Real Madrid is the most financially powerful and sit in fifth place with a rating of 3.336. Atlético Madrid are in 11th and Barcelona sit 12th.
