Three Barcelona players have made it into the list of the Top 10 most valuable players in the world of football according to a new study.

The good people at the Swiss research group CIES Football Observatory love making lists and have come up with a new one that you can see below.

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.
