Top 10 most valuable players in the world


Bright lights of England, the current most valuable players in the world are Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden.

The 19-year-old edged out fellow Englishman Foden, but both young players left Kylian Mbappe trailing in the list of the top 100 most valuable football players in the world. Bellingham’s form both on and off the field shows no signs of slowing down.

The CIES Football Observatory estimates Bellingham’s projected transfer value to be an astounding £183.9 million.

Foden, a 22-year-old standout for Manchester City, is valued at £177.5 million, while PSG winger Mbappe, who is worth an estimated £168.7 million, must settle for third place.

Based on a player’s income, the success of their club in various competitions, and the length of their contract, CIES determines a player’s transfer worth.

Erling Haaland of Man City and Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid round out the top five with values of £168.5 million and £154.8 million, respectively.

Bellingham has risen dramatically since the June 2022 summer rankings, when he was estimated to be valued £114.3 million and was ranked fifth.

The top teams in Europe are taking notice of Bellingham after a fantastic World Cup in Qatar.

The Dortmund star is still Liverpool’s first priority, although Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester City are also interested in signing the wonderkid.

It was estimated that the striker, who had recently moved to Manchester, was worth £130.4 million, more than twice the £51.2 million that City had to pay Dortmund to trigger his release clause.

With 27 goals already for City and a contract that lasts until 2027, the striker is in superb form and is expected to move up the rankings soon.

Haaland is followed in the most recent rankings by the young midfielders Pedri and Gavi of Barcelona.

Following their great displays for the Catalan giants, the Spanish players are believed to be worth £150.6m and £130.6m, respectively.

The Top 100 list includes 14 Three Lions players, including Jadon Sancho (£69.7m), Reece James (£87.9m), Bukayo Saka (£96.2m), and Raheem Sterling (£82.3m).
