    Paper talk: Europe’s most profitable football stadiums ranked. Juve eye Udinese star

    Today’s edition of La Stampa reports the ranking made by Deloitte with the ten most profitable football stadiums in Europe for the 2014-15 campaign.

    Arsenal’s Emirates stadium tops the list with € 132 million (the 30% of the club’s balance sheet). The North London stadium is followed by Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu (€ 129.8m), Barcelona’s Nou Camp (€ 116.9m) and Manchester United’s Old Trafford (€ 114m).

    ​Chelsea sit 5th in the table as they cashed in € 93.1 million thanks to incomes of Stamford Bridge, then there is the Allianz Areana (Bayern Munich, € 89.8m), the Parc des Princes (PSG, € 78m), Anfiled Road (Liverpool, € 75m), the Etihad Stadium (Man City, € 57m) and the Signal Idna Park (Borussia Dortmuns, € 54.2m).

    PSG’s stadium is the only one in the list which is not owned by the club (though they pay € 75 million to the city of Paris each year) whilst Juventus are the first Italian club in the ranking as the bianconeri sit 12th with € 51.4 million cashed in from the J Stadium in the 2014-15 campaign.

    The Old Lady has become the most powerful Serie A side also in financial terms. The Serie A giants are looking for a new midfielder and according to Tuttosport, Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul is one of Juventus’ winter transfer targets.

    Scouts of the bianconeri will keep a close eye on the former Valencia man next week-end when they two sides will meet in a J Stadium clash.
