Revealed: Where Liverpool rank among world's most VALUABLE clubs

Forbes have now revealed the world's ten most valuable football clubs, with Liverpool sitting near the top of the list. 

Since Fenway Sports Group acquired Liverpool for £300m in 2010, the club's value has massively risen thanks to sustainable investment, increased revenue off the pitch and fantastic on-field performances under Jurgen Klopp.

While FSG continue to face criticism from sections of the club's fanbase - sometimes justifiably - there can be no denying that Liverpool are in a very strong position in the food chain.

Now, thanks to Forbes, we can see just how valuable Liverpool are and where they rank among the world's other elite clubs.

LIVERPOOL'S IMPRESSIVE VALUTATION

According to Forbes, Liverpool are currently valued at $5.37bn (£4.22bn) - a change of just two per cent from last year.

That puts them fourth in the list of the world's most valuable club sides, sitting only behind Barcelona ($5.6bn), Manchester United ($6.55bn) and Real Madrid ($6.6bn) in the rankings.

Liverpool sit narrowly ahead of Manchester City ($5.1bn) and Bayern Munich ($5bn) but are miles ahead of their other Premier League foes in Tottenham ($3.2bn), Chelsea ($3.1bn) and Arsenal ($2.6bn).

Liverpool's operating income of $102m (£79.4m) is also one of the lowest among the Premier League's big six and significantly lower than Man City's ($148m) and Man Utd's ($187m).

FSG have sold minority stakes in Liverpool over recent years to boost investment, with RedBird Capital and Dyansty Equity buying stakes in 2021 and 2023 respectively.

However, despite being one of the world's most valuable sides, Liverpool have never spent beyond their means under FSG, something that has proved incredibly wise in the current market.

Liverpool are undergoing significant changes behind the scenes in the post-Klopp era, with Michael Edwards having returned to the club as FSG's CEO of Football. The former sporting director has also convinced Julian Ward to come back to Anfield as FSG's new technical director.
