Forbes rank Liverpool in top five most valuable teams, figure has more than quadrupled under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool are worth over £3.5B, according to Forbes. The financial outlet believes the Reds are in the top five most valuable clubs.

Liverpool have seen incredible growth over the last five or six years. They’ve climbed from being a giant, world-famous football club that didn’t win anything to one of the biggest and best teams on the planet.

The Reds will play their third Champions League final in five years on Saturday. They’ve just registered over 90 points in the Premier League, too, and boast some of the very best players on the planet.

And now Forbes have put a valuation on Liverpool – $4.45 billion or £3.6 billion. It’s a staggering number, though not a surprising one anymore.

It’s one that ranks highly in global football, too. Forbes believe there are only three more valuable clubs on the planet right now. Real Madrid top the pile ($5.1 billion), closely followed by Barcelona (also $5.1 billion). Manchester United then sit marginally above Liverpool at $4.6 billion.

Liverpool are worth a fortune

We just want to highlight the ridiculous growth at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp here. His arrival sparked all of this and the Reds unquestionably transformed with the German at the helm.

So back in 2015 – the last time Klopp wasn’t Liverpool boss – Real and Barcelona had valuations of $3.3B and $3.2B respectively. United sat at $3.1B. All three have grown well since then, with the Spaniards seeing their worth rise by just under 60%. United have seen similar at almost exactly 50%.

Then there’s Liverpool. The Reds were valued at $982m back in 2015, meaning they’ve grown well over 300% since Klopp arrived at the club. They’ve more than quadrupled.

It’s a sign of just how much Liverpool have risen over the years. They haven’t spent like any of the others, nor do they command the same stardom of player in the transfer market. Instead, we’ve seen intelligent management on and off the pitch.

And now, after a long time away, Liverpool are firmly fighting at the top of the football world.
