LONDON (AP) — Real Madrid and Barcelona are soccer's biggest moneymakers for the fifth straight year, and Manchester United lost its place among the top three biggest-earning clubs for the first time.
United, which is enduring a lackluster season under new manager David Moyes, dropped to fourth behind European champion Bayern Munich in the Football Money League compiled by accountancy firm Deloitte.
The biggest growth in 2012-13 was at Paris Saint-Germain, which went from 10th to fifth as the club's global profile was enhanced by David Beckham's four-month spell in the championship-winning team.
Madrid stayed on top for the ninth straight year after revenue rose slightly to $703 million. Spanish rival Barcelona had revenues of $654 million.
