Liverpool have been ranked as the fifth most valuable football club in the world on Forbes’ new rich list at a whopping $4.1 billion (£3 billion).
The Reds sit $100 million higher than Premier League rivals Manchester City and a significantly larger $1.6 billion ahead of Ligue 1 giants PSG.
You can see a visual breakdown of the top ten most valuable football clubs below, via B/R Football – in which you’ll notice Liverpool sit well ahead of Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs too.

It should be no surprise to see Real Madrid and Barcelona ranked No.1 and No.2 respectively, but Manchester United have lost their spot in the top three to reigning European champions Bayern Munich.
It’s a little shocking to see Serie A giants Juventus haven’t made the top ten, but they’re ranked 11th with a value of $1.95 billion – so not too far off Spurs.
Liverpool are big winners here and owners FSG will be thrilled to see their work is paying off, with an 88% change over the last two years, as per Forbes.
Back in 2016, the Reds were named the eighth most valuable club – behind Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea – at $1.5 billion (£1.1 billion – adjusted for inflation).
FSG are very say people as we see with the Redbird Capital deal.
So savy they waited until the end of January to buy an emergency defender.
