Last season's achievements have lifted FC Bayern into the top three of the Football Money League. In the ranking of the highest revenue-generating clubs compiled by the commercial enterprise Deloitte, the German record champions improved by one place with a total turnover of 634.1 million euros (revenue minus transfers) and displaced Manchester United (580.4 million euros) from third place.
