Juventus have moved ahead of Manchester United as the third most popular football team on social media, after seeing an voracious increase of 20 million followers following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The five time ballon D’or winner joined in summer 2018 and Juve have reaped the rewards since, now eclipsing Ronaldo’s former side United.

Juve boasted 10 million prior to the arrival of Ronaldo, but their rapid increase still sees them sit some way off first place, with a fellow European giant on 77.6 million.

Real Madrid still lead the way as the most popular club on instagram.

Top five Most Followed Clubs on Instagram

1. Real Madrid -77.6m followers

2. Barcelona -76.4m

3.Juventus -31.1m

4. Manchester United -31m

5. PSG -23.8m
