They are not only the most successful club in the world but also the richest in the world according to the latest survey done by the money league which publish their research results annually. Yes, its true that Real Madrid is the richest club by income for the season 2006-2007 probably for the season 2007-2008 too but the results are not completed yet.
So what makes Real Madrid not only the richest club in the world but more significantly, the most successful as well.Well the statistics do not lie and more often then not speak for themselves. For any club to be successful, only two titles could and should be given credit, The league and the Champions League, the rest are mere formalities as you all know (it does not take much to beat Sao Paulo in a cup final) so I am going to ignore the minor trophies here, lets have a look at most of the major football clubs track records against the Madrid Galacticos.
Manchester United have won only two Champions League trophy, one way way back when it was known as the European cup and the other in 1999, they have 16 league titles.
* Barcelona have also won two champions league trophies and 18 league titles
* Liverpool have won the competition FIVE times and they have 18 league titles
* Inter Milan have 2 champions league titles and 15 league titles
* Ac milan have 7 champions league titles and 17 league titles
There are some other major clubs as well but they have just started to grow so lets just ignore them for a moment.
Finally, Real Madrid has won 9 champions league titles and 30 league titles. Now I have listed all the great clubs of Europe above, not even a single club can match or come close to the records set by the Spanish powerhouse. Thus proving what I stated earlier that real Madrid is the undisputed champion of champions.
Real Madrid is the only team that holds the Cup in property, having won the title five consecutive times.
