Manchester City dominate the list of most valuable players in Premier League

Premier League

According to the most recent global list of player valuations, Pep Guardiola has five of the top ten most valuable footballers in the Premier League at his disposal at Manchester City.

That is supported by the most recent research from the CIES Football Observatory, which this week offered a thorough ranking of the most valuable football players worldwide.

Manchester City is thrilled to have 50% of the top-10 highest-paid players in the Premier League, and two of Pep Guardiola’s first-team talents are among the top-five players in the overall standings.

For the first time since the study’s inception, Manchester City also has a player with a CIES Football Observatory projected transfer valuation of above €200 million.

Only one player in the world is valued higher than any member of the Manchester City team, and that player is reputed midfield target and current Borussia Dortmund and England star Jude Bellingham, who is valued at an astounding €208.2 million.

The top-five estimated transfer values, according to CIES

Top ten highest projected transfer values for the Premier League, according to CIES

  • €200.5M – Phil Foden, Manchester City
  • €174.9M – Erling Haaland, Manchester City
  • €117.0M – Rodri, Manchester City
  • €109.7M – Luis Diaz, Liverpool
  • €108.7M – Bukayo Saka, Arsenal
  • €105.0M – Ruben Dias, Manchester City
  • €103.6M – Joao Cancelo, Manchester City
  • €99.3M – Reece James, Chelsea
  • €97.4M – Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal
  • €93.6M – Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United

The rankings next to the players listed in the CIES rankings will undoubtedly please Manchester City officials, especially in light of the transfer fees paid for each of the players, especially Erling Haaland, who cost the Premier League champions only £51 million during the most recent summer transfer window.

The same sentiment will undoubtedly also be felt by Phil Foden, who is considered as the best illustration of the Manchester City academy system performing as intended following the substantial investment made in the construction of the City Football Academy complex in east Manchester.
