the poor form, United are set for a big rise in turnover as benefits roll in from improved English Premier League TV contracts and new sponsorship deals. The club is forecasting revenue for the current season of between 420 million pounds ($691.5 million) and 430 million, up from 363 million last season.
"Beyond 2013/14, consistent qualification for the Champions League is key in Manchester United F.C. challenging to regain top spot in the Money League, a position it last held in 2003/04," said Deloitte's Austin Houlihan.
PSG have used their new-found riches to sign players such as Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic and last May won the French league for the first time since 1994.
"PSG are the fastest climber in this year's Money League, claiming the highest-ever position for a French club," said Houlihan.
The largest part of PSG's income last season came from commercial deals that yielded 255 million euros. Its sponsors include airline Emirates, kit supplier Nike and the Qatar Tourism Authority.
"We expect to see them become a mainstay in the top five in years to come, backed by their ambitious Qatari owners and strong commercial support," Houlihan added.
