According to Forbes, Real has 'turned victories on the pitch into dollars at the bank' for which it has usurped United's long-held title as the most valuable soccer team in the world in the annual list, which was started by the magazine inthe Independent reports. However, Forbes insisted that there is no reason for major concern at Old Trafford, although it stated on its website that Real is growing more bigger, profitable and faster than the Red Devils, according to figures which constituted a rise on last year's valuations of 42 per cent for United and 76 per cent for Real. According to Forbes, due to the Spanish side attracting globally recognised players like Raul, David Beckham, Ronaldo Lima and Cristiano Ronaldo, coupled with rich sponsorship deals and a record nine Champions League titles and 32 domestic championships, Real's revenue has increased 62 per cent over the past three years with an average operating margin of 28 per cent. Forbes further suggested that Real's place at the top of the list could continue with more cash coming in as the team is close to signing a long-term, 39 million dollars-a-year shirt sponsorship deal with Dubai's Emirates Airline.
