Which clubs are on the list and which are not

Spanish club Real Madrid were second on the list, followed by Liverpool in third place and Manchester United in fourth. The stat was all the more surprising as neither United nor PSG were in first place despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi respectively.

PSG were ninth in the list, below Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Juventus. Barcelona and Manchester City (in last place) finished in the top ten. Surprisingly, the two north London clubs, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, did not make the list.

The absence of Serie A clubs like Inter Milan, AC Milan and Napoli was unsurprising, but it was a fall from grace from when Serie A was one of the best world leagues.
