Ever wondered who the most valuable footballers in Europe are at this minute? What about the 60 most valuable footballers? Well, you’re in luck.
The International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) has put the most-coveted soccer players into a nifty little table. The ranking is sorted by predicting the price range of the respective player. For example, the list has Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at the top, with his price tag ranked at around £200m.
The CIES Football Observatory has certainly been hard-pressed to produce this, and with the transfer market officially opening tomorrow, it’s a nice little taster for what’s to come.
What do you think of the list? Barca, United and Real Madrid are all tied on seven players a piece, but there’s no Neymar to be seen. Predictable names such as Gareth Bale and Edinson Cavani feature heavily.
