Pep Guardiola’s City side rank first at £1.14bn, Real Madrid – whose summer splurge on Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic saw their squad value soar – sit second at £1.07bn, while Catalonian giants Barcelona take up the bronze medal spot at £1.03bn.Although Spurs find themselves down a place in sixth, they are one of just three English teams who make the top ten – with London rivals Chelsea sneaking in at tenth with a squad value of £697.5m.The Blues are currently serving a two window ban so are relying on youth which has seen their squad value drop.But they still sit above Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal who do not make the top ten and sit 11th and 13th respectively.LATEST FOOTBALL NEWSSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantineGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleDespite a summer of big spending at Old Trafford – Aaron Wan-Bissaka arrived for £50m and Harry Maguire for £80m – the Red Devils’ squad clocks in at nearly half the value of their blue neighbours City at just £644.63m.While Arsenal – who smashed their club record transfer fee to bag £72m man Nicolas Pepe in the summer – sit two places down behind 12th place Borussia Dortmund with a £570.38m.Elsewhere in the top 30, the Premier League is represented by West Ham, Everton, Leicester, Bournemouth and Wolves whose squads are all valued north of the £275m mark.3 Lukaku is now third in the most expensive player ever in terms of total fees3 Mauro Icardi’s switch to PSG knocked spurs out of Europe’s top five most valuable squadsCredit: AFP or licensorsEx-Germany and Real Madrid star Christoph Metzelder ‘suspected of sharing child abuse pics’ as cops raid his homelast_img
