The Football Observatory has released its assessment of the players’ market value. Paris is ahead of Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho.

Just as every six months, CIES released its list of the 100 most expensive players on the planet this Monday. Kylian Mbappé clearly leads with an estimated valuation of € 259.2 million, almost 80 more than his transfer from Monaco to PSG 2017.

The 21-year-old world champion is ahead of Raheem Sterling, excellent in City under the orders of Pep Guardiola (EUR 194.7 million) and another English nugget: Jadon Sancho (EUR 179.1 million). Then follow four other Premier League players with Trent Alexander-Arnold (EUR 171.1 million), Marcus Rashford (EUR 152.3 million), Mohammed Salah (EUR 144.9 million) and Sadio Mané (EUR 139.2 million) .

On the French side, Antoine Griezmann is in eighth position with a value slightly higher than the amount Barça paid to Atlético last summer (EUR 136.4 million). Lionel Messi is now 32 and one year from the end of his contract (factor taken into account in the calculation method) which is the 22nd last player over EUR 100 million (EUR 100.1 million).

The oldest player in this top 100, Cristiano Ronaldo is only 70th with an estimated value of 62.8 million euros.
