The business of football is one of the biggest businesses in the world and with the Premier League being the biggest league in the world financially, it continues to receive further investments in form partial and total takeovers lately.
Newcastle United was acquired by Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund PIF two months ago in a deal worth £300m and today West Ham received 27% investment of the club's value which is about £160m from Czech billionaire Daniel Křetínský.
The two deals will not immediately change the value of the clubs as it is not measured by the owner's wealth but by a number of factors that increase over time, so if you expect a drastic change you might be disappointed a little.
Manchester United is still the most valuable club in the Premier League with a total value of US$4.65 billion. They are closely followed by rivals Liverpool who have a value of US$4.14 billion while United's city rivals Manchester City are valued at US$4 billion.
The two biggest London clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal make up the remainder of the Premier League five most valuable clubs. Chelsea has a value of US$3.35 billion while Arsenal is valued at US$3.06 billion.
