10. Juventus

195.4 million euros ($265.3 million)

Italy's most successful club recaptured the league title in 2011/12, helping to fire the Old Lady back into the money league's top ten. Its first Serie A title since 2002/3 ensured total revenue increased by 27 percent despite its absence from the lucrative European Champions League in 2010/11.

A significant increase in match day revenue and bonuses received for their on-pitch success, made up for the absence of the broadcasting income that Europe's premier continental competition generates. This bodes well for the long term, as their return to the Champions League in 2012/13 and the on-going run in the competition may propel them further up the list next year.
