Building on previous information, the French newspaper “L’Equipe” presented a comprehensive list ranking the 18 clubs of Europe’s premier competition from the highest to the lowest overall budget for the 2019-20 season.
Those numbers are not official, but the report can be considered accurate and it includes all the expenses of each team.
Barcelona made its share of summer moves and ended up on top of the list with a 41 million euros budget. CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid are the other two teams spending over 40 million. The 30 million-mark was met by Khimki Moscow Region, AX Armani Exchange Milan, and Fenerbahce Beko, while Crvena Zvezda sits at the bottom end of the list.
French side ASVEL was the focus of the report which goes on to note that Tony Parker’s team must follow examples set by FC Bayern Munich and Zalgiris Kaunas.
