Real, with an estimated value of $3.58 billion, dropped to third behind La Liga rivals Barcelona, valued at $3.64 billion.

Rounding out the top five on Forbes' list of the 20 most valuable teams is Bayern Munich ($2.71 billion) in fourth and Manchester City ($2.08 billion) in fifth.

Six Premier League teams made the top 10 including United's rivals Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham, thanks mostly to the domestic and global television deals. That was a testament to the team's powerful brand and marketing acumen, Forbes said in a statement.

Significantly, Ozanian also noted how United's qualifying for next season's Champions League, courtesy of winning the UEFA Europa League trophy, means the club could stay at the top of this list.

Last year, Atleti were valued at $633 million, and the magazine stated that the club has seen a 16 percent boost in value - a mark bested in the rankings only by West Ham United (17 percent). "Debt includes stadium debt applicable to the team or team owner". While respectable, this is still a very long way from the other two Spanish giants, which both generated $688 million. And finally, the Champions League, the money-spinner, plays a huge part in determining the most valuable football teams.

UEFA president Aleksander?eferin has gone on record saying he will "make sure UEFA competitions never become closed leagues or tournaments".

It's the first time in five years United top this list, per the report.

The richest clubs are getting richer, the gap is growing, and football's financial bubble doesn't look like bursting yet.
