AC Milan
The return to UEFA football in 2009/10 helped AC Milan climb three places to seventh in the Money League with record revenues of €235.8m (£193.1m), up €39.3m (20%) on 2008/09. This climb in the rankings included overtaking city rivals Inter, despite the Nerazzurri’s on-pitch dominance in 2009/10.
