Although the growth of Italian soccer is a reality, Italian clubs are far away from the revenues generated by the top European giants.
According to Forbes, Juventus’ current value is $1.258 billion but the Giallorossi are leading Italian economic growth due to a 12% increase in value since last year.
Although James Pallotta is fiercely criticized by the AS Roma supporters, the strategies that he is implementing are improving the economic condition of his club.
In reference to the other Italian clubs, Forbes highlighted that Milan, Roma, Inter, and Napoli are following Juventus in this particular ranking.
- Milan: overall value $802 million; Position 13
- Roma: $569 million; Position 17
- Inter: $537 mln; Position 18;
- Napoli: $379 mln; Position 20.
According to what Calcio e Finanza reported, last year, Juventus was the Italian club that collected the most revenue ($379 million) followed by Roma ($242 mln), Milan ($238 mln), Inter ($199 mln) and Napoli ($158 mln).
Italian clubs need to work hard to fill the gap with legendary clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich.
The current value of these superpowers of soccer is astonishing.
- Manchester United $3.689 billion; Revenue $765 M
- Barcelona $3.635 bln; Revenue $688 M;
- Real Madrid $3.58 bln; Revenue $688 M;
- Bayern Munich $2.713 bln; Revenue $657 M;
- Manchester City $2.083 bln; Revenue $583 M;
- Arsenal $1.932 bln; Revenue $520 M;
- Chelsea $1.845 bln; Revenue $497 M;
- Liverpool $1.492 bln; Revenue $448 M;
- Juventus $1.258 bln; Revenue $379 M;
- Tottenham Hotspurs $1.058 bln. $310 M
