Kylian Mbappe named world’s most valuable player by study after snubbing Real Madrid

A study of the world’s most valuable players has put Kylian Mbappe above the competition.

Paris Saint-Germain have secured the French striker a new three-year deal after turning down Real Madrid, boosting his value in the CIES Football Observatory figures.

The formula takes into account several factors such as performance on the pitch, age and length of contract, which means signing Mbappe on the dotted line has boosted his value.

Mbappe is valued at £175m by the study, ahead of Real striker and Champions League final winner Vinicius Junior at £158m.

Manchester City’s incoming striker Erling Haaland tops the Premier League’s most valuable player list and completes the star rostrum in Europe’s top five leagues, at £129.5m – far more than what the champions paid for him.

Barcelona’s Pedri (£115m) and Jude Bellingham (£113.5m) make up the top five with Phil Foden (£105m), Liverpool winger Luis Diaz (£93.5m) and Ruben Dias (93 £m) also in the top ten.

Premier League players make up 41 of the 100 most valuable players and that number could rise this summer as clubs target several expensive acquisitions.

Chelsea and Tottenham target Josko Gvardiol, currently at RB Leipzig, is considered the second most valuable centre-back at £85million and behind only City’s Dias.
