[MAKING A LIST] Real Madrid and Barcelona remained 1-2 on the annual Deloitte Football Money League rankings, based on revenues for the 2012-13 season. Bayern Munich, winner of the 2013 UEFA Champions League, moved ahead of Manchester United into third place. Paris St. Germain, unranked in the 2011-12 Top 20, climbed to fifth thanks to income from the Qatar Tourism Authority.

"We expect to see them become a mainstay in the top five in years to come, backed by their ambitious Qatari owners and strong commercial support," Austin Houlihan, senior manager in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said.

The PSG deal with Qatar Tourism Authority has been criticized as an artificial mechanism by the Qatari-owned club to bring in revenues that allow it to meet UEFA's new financial fair play rules.

The top 10 consists of the two Spanish clubs, four from the EPL, two from Italy's Serie A, plus Bayern, the German champion, and PSG, the French champion.
