MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal have seen their values plummet – with Liverpool on the brink of becoming the Premier League’s most-valuable club.
The Red Devils have seen their worth drop £143million, while the Gunners have depreciated by £150m.
Meanwhile, Liverpool – the new champions – have seen their value rise by £64m as they close-in on fierce rivals United.
The Reds have risen to fourth in the rankings of the most-valuable clubs in the world, according to the Brand Finance Review.
They marginally trail Man Utd, with Real Madrid and Barcelona the runaway leaders.
Despite still sitting at No1, Los Blancos saw over £200m knocked off their value.

Barcelona, despite missing out on the LaLiga title to Real, saw a small boost of £18.1m.
Manchester City slipped to fifth in the table after their value took a £118m hit.
German champions Bayern Munich were the biggest losers in the top ten, seeing their worth plummet by £233m.
Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham – seventh and ninth respectively – enjoyed small gains.
But Chelsea (-£17m) and Arsenal saw their value take a real clubbing.
Man Utd’s huge slip should come as no surprise, though.
In May, it was revealed their debt had soared by £127.4m to £429m due to the crippling effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
With United’s worth dropping, Liverpool now sit just £57m behind their local rivals in their bid to become England’s most-valuable team.
