Man Utd named ahead of Real Madrid as world's richest

United have increased their wealth in the annual list of the world's 25 most valuable clubs, topping the table with £0.9billion, from £0.7billion in 2007.

Second-placed Real Madrid boast a higher operating profit at £56million but lag behind the Old Trafford club, for whom Malcolm Glazer paid £0.7billion in 2005.

United's domestic rivals Liverpool have put a season of boardroom strife behind them to rocket seven places from 11th to fourth place in the list.

The Reds' value more than doubled from £227million to £525million despite the ongoing controversy over the club's ownership.
