The World of sports is set to say goodbye to a generation of great sportsmen and women. Tennis legend Roger Federer is coming to the end of his career, the same story can be said about the William sisters. In football, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will entertain us for a few more years but we all know their days in the game are numbered now. Basketball master LeBron James is also aging now. Let us enjoy them now because we don’t know when others will come. Today, we want to look at five wealthiest clubs in 2018.
5. New York Yankees- $4.0 Billion

Major League Baseball giant New York Yankees takes the fifth place in the Money League this year. The New York-based side has lifted 27 World Series Championships. The last came in 2009 under former Coach Joe Girardi. Yankee Stadium is crying for a title and Aaron Boone knows he has to deliver soon or be sacked. Bronx Bombers owners Yankee Global Enterprises and Hank Steinbrenner family will be impressed by Forbes latest valuation of $4.0 billion.
4. Barcelona- $4.064 Billion
— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) November 20, 2018
No team has enjoyed more success in Europe in the last ten years than Barcelona. The Catalan giants lifted La Liga in 2017/18 season to make it 8 crowns out of possible 10 in the last decade alone. They fell short once again in Europe but don’t forget they lifted UEFA Champions League in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2014 to make it 5 crowns.
Ernesto Valverde knows Camp Nou fans want him to at least reach European Cup final in 2018/19 season. However, what he might not be able to do is to beat Manchester United in the Money League because they lead once again with a valuation of $4.12 billion. His club is also behind their bitter rivals Real Madrid ($4.088 billion) but not by far. Messi club is valued at $4.064 billion in 2018 by Forbes.
3. Real Madrid- $4.088 Billion
Real Madrid lifted their third consecutive UEFA Champions League crown in May this year. The Los Blancos failed to retain their La Liga title but they went all the way to lift the big one. They have now won 13 European crowns. The closest challenger is AC Milan who will not even play in Europe for the next two years after UEFA banned them for breaking financial rules. The Spanish Capital giant is worth $4.088 billion in 2018 according to Forbes. Fiorentino Perez will not be impressed when he learns Manchester United has beaten his side once again in the Money League.
