A new study has revealed the 10 most valuable clubs in the Premier League – and a number of them are currently up for sale.
Chief among those clubs is Manchester United, with the Glazer family keen to find a buyer for the Old Trafford outfit, which they have owned since 2005.
However, a report from The Mirror states that the Glazers could be looking for as much as £8 billion in order to sanction a full sale of the club.
That figure would represent a world-record price tag for a football club by a considerable margin and is well in excess of the £4.8bn valuation given to United in a study released by Sportico earlier this week.
The Red Devils retained their place at the top of the study into the Premier League’s most valuable clubs – showing a 28% increase in their value since it was last carried out in 2021.
According to the report, converted into sterling by the Daily Mail, United are estimated to be worth around £1bn more than second-placed Liverpool – who are also on the market – and approximately £1.3bn more than fierce local rivals Manchester City.
Arsenal’s resurgence under Mikel Arteta has seen their value increase to £2.9bn – a number that sees them rise to fourth place in the study.
Todd Boehly and his partners, Clearlake Capital, reportedly paid a massive £4.25bn to purchase Chelsea from Roman Abramovich last May. However, according to Sportico, the US consortium paid well over the odds for the Blues, who are only valued at £2.8bn in the study.
The only other club is crack the billion-pound barrier is sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur (£2.6bn).
Rumours have swirled in the last few days that Everton could soon be up for sale. The Merseyside club ranked eighth in the study with an estimated value of £486 million.
According to a report from The Guardian, Everton’s majority owner Farhad Moshiri is willing to listen to offers of around £500m for the Toffees, who currently find themselves mired in the Premier League drop zone.
Although they only rank 10th on the overall list of the most valuable Premier League clubs, Newcastle have seen their value increase by 63% since they were taken over by a Saudi-led consortium in October 2021.
The Magpies are now estimated to be worth £357m – and that number is only likely to rise in the coming years should Newcastle manage to cement themselves as regular participants in the Champions League.
