Liverpool have been ranked as the fourth most valuable club in the world - ahead of Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Reds, owned by Fenway Sports Group since 2010, are valued at a staggering £4.2bn and only trail Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid, according to a list compiled by American business magazine Forbes.

But despite falling to seventh in the 2024 Deloitte Football Money League after an underwhelming 2022/23 season in both the Premier League and the Champions League, the club are valued at roughly 14 times what FSG paid back in October 2010.

That eye-watering valuation is a result of the success Liverpool enjoyed during Jurgen Klopp's nine-year tenure as manager between 2015 and 2024, winning the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup among other trophies during a glittering era at Anfield.

In recent years, the Reds have signed lucrative contracts with Nike and other industry-leading companies and, according to Forbes, therefore have an operating income of £79.4m.

FSG recently appointed former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards as the firm's CEO of Football as the Americans look set to add to their stable of sporting investments by launching a multi-club model.
