Top 10 Club Brands

So Brand Finance is a global company that evaluates other companies, so yearly they place their time and energy to release the top brands in the world of futbol. These rankings are based on the income that is received from Matchday, Broadcast and Licensing of the club's branding. This ranking has been available to the public since 2005 and as of last year the names in the top 10 haven't changed in name, only in position. It seems right consider my team is #1, after moving up 1 spot to trade with Man. U. The rest of the top 10 is static except for the 8-10 clubs doing a little shuffling. Do we see another team being able to break through into the top 10 in the near future? Manchester City, Bordeaux, Ajax?
