Premier League campaigners Manchester United have edged reigning European League champions Real Madrid to top the new rich list of European clubs.
Despite the Red Devils' failure to make meaningful impact in the Champions League in recent years, the Old Trafford club projected revenues of £593m in latest financial return.
Real Madrid have won the last three Champions League titles, but Spanish clubs are generally struggling to keep pace with the Premier League sides.
And according to the report on Daily Mail, Manchester United narrowly defeated Spanish club Real Madrid in the latest rich list made available by the European football governing body.
The report added that Manchester City (fifth), Arsenal (seventh), Liverpool (eighth) and Chelsea (ninth) all feature in UEFA's top 10 reflecting the financial muscle of England's top-flight.
