These two might not be direct rivals and have not played against each other often enough to have a full fledged rivalry but they have been constantly battling for the crown of biggest club in the world. Manchester United were head and shoulders above any other football team in Sir Alex Fergusen era largely down to their worldwide fan base and Madrid has used similar approach to take their brand to next level. United dominated world football in terms of financial powers from late 90’s but Real Madrid overtook them as the richest club back in 2009-10. However after several years of lurking behind Madrid in terms of financial race, Manchester United got themselves back as the richest club in the world even without champions league football and many experts believe United will be the first team to cross $1 billion in yearly revenue by 2020. However Madrid has been the most successful club in history of football and their recent 3 champions league trophies in 4 years put them in the class of their own as far as on the pitch performances are concerned.
