While S’poreans rant online about the presence of FTs, Francisco Roca Perez, La Liga’s chief executive, said he intended to encourage non-Spanish investors to look on La Liga clubs as an alternative to the EPL. This move is aimed at shoring up the precarious finances of many La Liga clubs.
This is despite Real remaining the world’s richest club and Barce taking second place, ahead of MU who drop to third. Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are fifth, sixth and seventh respectively. The dominance of the EPL is despite the weakness of sterling against the euro.
