Corporate finance company Deloitte UK have released their 2015 football Money League, with the biggest change in an English club occurring at Manchester City, with the Premier League champions’ revenue increasing by £75m to nearly £350m over the last 12 months.

Premier League clubs such as Sunderland, Swansea and Stoke all made it in to the top 30, with Newcastle and Everton both making the top 20 on the rich list, each bringing in well over £120m.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that the Premier League produces the most attractive football, therefore bringing in the most investment, saying: “The audience of the league all over the world is big…the success of the Premier League is that the world’s richest people invest in it, which has not been the case in other leagues.”
