Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kylian Mbappe takes top spot as the world’s most valuable footballer with an estimated value of €205 million.
Vinicius Junior takes second place on €185m and is ahead of Erling Haaland on €153m. The Norwegian has just completed a move to Man City after the Premier League champions activated a €60m release clause in his contract.
In fourth place is Barcelona midfielder Pedri who was signed for an initial fee of €5m but is now thought to be worth €135m.
The other two Barca players in the top 10 are Frenkie de Jong at No. 8 (€112m) and January signing Ferran Torres at No. 10 (€109.5m).
The CIES Football Observatory include factors such as the player’s age, career progression, contract duration and performance to come up with an estimated value.
