Who is the most valuable sports franchise in the world? Take a guess. Did you guess the New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, or Los Angeles Lakers? Because those three are all wrong.According to a new report by Forbes Magazine, that title belongs to the Manchester United. They are currently worth $3.3 billion.Shares of the English soccer team, which were offered to the public last August at $14, did poorly at first but have soared the past few days. Last seen at just under $17,  Manchester United’s stock has outperformed the S&P 500 since its IPO and made the controlling Glazer family and legendary investor George Soros,  who bought a big stake in the team shortly after it went public, wealthier.In case you were wondering, the Cowboys are tied with the Yankees for being the third-most valuable team in the world. They are reportedly worth $2.1 billion.Via Forbes
