Share This Story



You'll be amazed how much money the world's biggest clubs make. Check out the top 20 from 2013.

Spanish football clubs owe the government 752 million euros ($982 million) in unpaid back taxes, according to figures released Tuesday.

The United Left party says figures provided by the government show an increase of nearly 150 million euros ($195 million) in unpaid taxes over the past four years, with topflight clubs making up nearly half a billion euros ($653 million) of the overall figure.

At least six top division clubs are already in bankruptcy protection.

The numbers were released after the United Left, a communist party-led coalition, submitted a written request to parliament for the information.
