Gonzalo Higuain was bought by Juventus for a record-breaking  €90 million from Napoli

Italy's dominant powerhouse this decade, Juventus also find themselves on the list and they edge Roma by one million with a debt of €209 million. However, unlike Roma, the Old Lady’s revenue stands at €324 million as per Forbes and having won five Scudettos in a row, the debt can be handled.

Further, their new stadium is already raking in good amount of income and the record-breaking transfer of Gonzalo Higuain for €90 million last summer, further emphasis on their financial stability.

The sale of Paul Pogba to Manchester United was expected to balance Higuain’s transfer fee and Juventus need to further up their finances, especially their commercial revenue if they want to compete with major European heavyweights.
