Lionel Messi may be the GOAT, but he’s only the seventh most valuable player in the world currently, according to a new report.

The CIES Football Observatory reckon the Barcelona captain is worth €171.2m, which is way below PSG striker Kylian Mbappe who tops the charts at €218.5m

Here’s a look at the top 10 most valuable players, according to the CIES.

1. Kylian Mbappe (PSG) - €218.5m

2. Harry Kane (Tottenham) - €200.3m

3. Neymar (PSG) - €197.1m

4. Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) - €185.8m

5. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - €184.3m

6. Paulo Dybala (Juventus) - €171.9m

7. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - €171.2m

8. Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) - €162.0m

9. Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona) - €157.0m

10. Leroy Sane (Manchester City) - €156.1m

Barcelona’s other representative in the top 10 is Philippe Coutinho who comes in just behind Messi at €157.0m.

The valuations are determined by the CIES’ ‘exclusive algorithm’ which considers a variety of attributes including age, results, position and league. More details are available here.
