Neymar Now World Most Expensive Player – (Includes 50 Most Expensive Players)


Dele Alli and Harry Kane are individually worth more than Lionel Messi.

This is contained in a new CIES Football Observatory report published by Sky Sports.

Barcelona forward, Neymar tops Europe with a staggering £186m projected price tag, followed by Alli (£137m), Kane (£135m) and Messi (£134m).

The research group calculates values by the performance of players and their clubs in Europe’s top five leagues, international status, contract, age and position.

Atletico Madrid striker, Antoine Griezmann is the fifth-most expensive player at £132m, followed by Barcelona’s Luis Suarez on £124m.

The report suggests Manchester United’s £93.25m world-record signing Paul Pogba is now worth £119m and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard would cost potential suitors around £104m.

Other Premier League players in the top 20 include Kevin De Bruyne (£98m), Romelu Lukaku (£93m), Raheem Sterling (£87m), Alexis Sanchez (£85m) and Roberto Firmino (£75m).

Eric Dier is worth more than Diego Costa with a £75m projected price tag
Tottenham’s Eric Dier is also valued at £75m, ahead of Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa (both £74m) and team-mate Christian Eriksen (£73m), while new Manchester City signing Bernardo Silva (£71m) ranks above Leroy Sane (£66m) and John Stones (£63m).

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial (£65m) is considered to be worth more than England international Marcus Rashford (£62m).

Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale is a potential bargain at £59m, making the out-of-favour forward only the 43rd most expensive player in Europe – despite costing Los Blancos a then-world record £85m fee nearly four years ago.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale both make the top 50
Team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo is the oldest player to make the list at 32 years old, ranking No 11 at £99m and Monaco’s 18-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe is the youngest, with the Arsenal target ranking No 18 at £82m.
