    Treble-chasers Manchester City have been named the most valuable football club in the world after usurping Real Madrid to the summit of the rankings.

    The Citizens have their eyes fixated on the final of the UEFA Champions League as they look to win the competition for the first time in their history on Saturday.

    They are also seeking to win the treble for the first time in their history and the second time in the history of English football.

    Having wrestled the Premier League title off Arsenal in addition to lifting the FA Cup after defeating eternal rivals Manchester United, the treble would be the icing on a perfectly made cake.

    Anyway, Manchester City are now the most valuable football club in the world, 15 years after Sheikh Mansour acquired the club from former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

    They have watched the club grow in leaps and bounds over time, with a positive upsurge of over 15% in 2023 which raised their brand value to £1.29 billion.

    That growth has seen the club usurp Real Madrid, a team whose brand value fell by 3% to £1.26 billion, based on data provided by Brand Finance.
