#3 Barcelona - €790.38 million

These have been testing times for Barcelona both on the pitch and away from it. There has been a lot of discontentment between the players, the board and the fans and it has all now culminated in Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board of directors tendering their resignation.

The 2019-20 season was a largely forgettable campaign for the Cules as they went trophyless for the first time since 2007. However, that has still not been able to put a major dent in Barcelona's value as a club as they continue to be one of the top three most valuable clubs in the world.

It would have perhaps taken a major hit had Lionel Messi left the club like he had decided back in the summer transfer window. Messi is one of the most followed sporting personalities in the world and having him on his payroll has definitely helped Barcelona's case.

#2 Manchester City - €971.64 million

Like Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City were catapulted back into prominence following the takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008 which led to an incredible amount of funds being pumped into the club. Manchester City have now become a massive club.

They have been the most dominant unit in the English top-flight over the past decade and under Pep Guardiola, they have shown signs of being world beaters though they have continuously pulled up short in Europe.

Manchester City are packed to the hilt with superstars from across the world and have one of the best football managers of all time, Pep Guardiola, coaching them. As such, the €971.64 valuation comes as no surprise.

#1 Liverpool - €973.35 million

It has been a road full of thorns, fire and potholes for Liverpool since the beginning of the Premier League era but it's safe to say now that they have reached the summit. Jurgen Klopp has achieved the incredible feat of guiding the Merseysiders to a Champions League trophy and then the Premier League crown in successive seasons.

It has been a meticulously planned trip to the top with Liverpool investing wisely in the transfer market and making some shrewd signings that have got them incredible returns. The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, and Firmino were all relatively cheap signings but they took Liverpool to the top of Europe in captivating fashion.

They are tipped to defend their Premier League crown this season but the English top-flight continues to be unpredictable and there's no telling which way the 2020-21 season is going.
