Forbes released its list of the world's most valuable teams Wednesday, with Manchester on top at 1.84 billion dollars.

The second highest and top North American franchise is the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys at 1.65 billion dollars.

The New York Yankees, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, Real Madrid, New York Giants, Arsenal, New York Jets and Houston Texans round out the top 10.
