Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe joined by Liverpool and Man City stars and Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong as most valuable footballers June 7, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Kylian Mbappe has been named as the most valuable footballer in the world, with four Premier League players in the top ten.
CIES Football Observatory has published their list of top 100 estimated transfer values for players worldwide.
Mbappe’s bumper new three year contract with Paris Saint-Germain has fired him back to the top of the list, with an estimated transfer value of €205.6million [£176m].
The France striker came close to leaving PSG for Real Madrid on a free transfer, before committing his short-term future to the club.
Not far behind is Champions League and LaLiga winner Vinicius Jr, who enjoyed a brilliant season with Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old is valued at €185.3million [£158.6m], but he only has two years left on his current contract.
New Man City signing Erling Haaland is third on the list with an estimated transfer value of €152.6million [£130.7m].
City paid an initial feel of just £51million for the superstar striker, who scored 86 goals in 89 games for Borussia Dortmund.
Barcelona star Pedri is fourth with a value of €135.1million [£115.7m], and is followed by two English stars.
Jude Bellingham, 18, has an estimated value of €133.7million [£114.5m] after starring for Borussia Dortmund and has been linked with a return to the Premier League.
Four-time Premier League winner Phil Foden is sixth on the list with a value of €124million [£106.2m] and Manchester United target Frankie de Jong [€112.5million] is seventh.
Liverpool star Luis Diaz, who only joined the club in January, has seen his brilliant performances rewarded with a place at eight on the list.
Man City’s Ruben Dias is the highest defender with a value of €109.6million [£93.8m], with former City star Ferran Torres [€109.5million] rounding off the top 10.
There was no place in the top 100 for Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, with Kevin de Bruyne (76th) the oldest player in the list.
