Manchester United earned £60.8m in TV revenue from Premier League competition alone in the 2012-2013 season, a sum that was a record for an English club.
However, when factoring in revenue received from broadcast rights in all competitions the reigning champions of England still fall considerably short of the sums banked by Serie A kings Juventus and AC Milan and La Liga royalty Real Madrid and Barcelona.
In data collected and distributed by TV Sports Markets, the figures - taken from the last 12 months - show that Real Madrid earned almost DOUBLE what Manchester City and Arsenal pocketed for the same duration.
The Premier League, though, is the only division that has four representatives in the top ten, as detailed below, while Spain and Italy have just two members and Germany's Bundesliga - like the French Ligue 1 - has one.
|Real Madrid||La Liga||€178.4m|
|AC Milan||Serie A||€124m|
|Manchester United||Premier League||€108m|
|Manchester City||Premier League||€98m|
|Paris Saint Germain||Ligue 1||€89m|
