Despite having a season to forget in La Liga, Real Madrid have returned to the top of the rich list of the world's most valuable football clubs. 

Forbes has released the 2019 edition of the world’s most valuable teams and the outfit from the Spanish capital are back on top after a two-year break. 

Even after losing Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid are still worth a cool $4.24 billion USD. Their net worth copped a tidy top up in the past year, thanks mostly to a cash injection of US$100 million from its third consecutive UEFA Champions League win. 

The Forbes piece also hints that Real Madrid is on the brink of inking a US$1.8 billion 12-year deal with Adidas - the highest kit deal in the history of football. 

The valuation of US$4.24 billion puts Real Madrid in the third spot on the list of most valuable sports teams worldwide, behind the Dallas Cowboys at US$5 billion and the New York Yankees, worth US$4.6 billion.
