Barcelona is the second most valuable football team in the world.


Even though Forbes magazine is not very interested in European football, its report on the finances of European clubs is often talked about in the football world. 

Forbes's annual list of the top 50 most valuable sports teams in the world includes football teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Chelsea, among others. 

Even though none of the football teams make the top ten, Real Madrid has been named the most valuable football team, with a value of about $5.1 billion. 

It's worth a little more than Barcelona, which is second on the list of football clubs and 15th overall, with a $5 billion price tag. 

It's interesting to see that the football teams seem to have moved down a little on the overall Forbes list that came out last year. But their values have gone up for both Barcelona and Real Madrid. 

Last year, Barcelona was worth more than Real Madrid. The Catalan team was also ranked fourth, just behind the New York Knicks, New York Yankees, and Dallas Cowboys. 

This time, Barcelona is 15th, while NFL teams have been all over the top ten. With an incredible $8 billion, the Dallas Cowboys are back on top. 

Still, Barca's value has gone up because the club is in the middle of a huge economic boom that has brought in $692 million in revenue. It's a safe bet to say that this makes the Catalans one of the biggest football clubs in Europe. 

But Barcelona's flowery time could be coming to an end soon, especially if the club doesn't live up to expectations after putting together a strong team. 

Javier Tebas, the president of La Liga, has already told Barcelona that they need to lower their salary mass if they want to stay in business next year, especially since the club won't be able to pull any economic levers next summer.
