PSG and France superstar Kylian Mbappe was the world’s most valuable player for a long time, but Haaland’s outrageous goalscoring record – which saw him fire Man City to a historic treble last term – has now seen him better the Frenchman’s ETV of €136m. Mbappe’s valuation is also impacted by his expiring contract.

After his €103m move to Real Madrid and an incredible start to life in Spain, Jude Bellingham is the third most valuable player in world football. The young Englishman’s value has exploded in recent times, jumping from €100m to €120m over the summer and now up to €132.5m.
