Tottenham Hotspur are the fourth most financially powerful club in world football, that is according to the results of the Soccerex Football Finance 100 for 2020.
The football business experts use “bespoke methodology” in order to rank the top 100 clubs in the world based on their finances, with the report stating that squad value, tangible assets, cash in the bank, potential investments from owners and net debt are the aspects taken into account.
Spurs sit in fourth place on that list, with only Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Bayern Munich currently above them. That means that the north London outfit are above Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus Liverpool and Manchester United.
Both PSG and City top the list due to the vast amount of resource their Middle Eastern owners have, with the French side actually leapfrogging the Premier League outfit because of an improved level of financial management.
Is Tanguy Ndombele being used correctly by Tottenham?
Loads of Spurs fans have been reacting to their lofty position in the table, with some praising owner Daniel Levy for it whilst many are hopeful that it means that the club will spend plenty of money in the summer transfer window. Here is what some had to say about it on Twitter…
Anyone else have a rly weird feeling this summer transfer is gonna be a madness and we gonna splash out on defence?
