Erling Haaland continues to lead the way as the most valuable footballer in the world ahead of Kylian Mbappe.
The Norwegian has picked up where he left off after a 52-goal season for Manchester City in his debut campaign at the club. The goalscoring machine is once again scoring goals for fun, which has seen his Estimated Transfer Value (ETV) on our Player Valuation Model rocket to €144.2 million.
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.
Arsenal have another representative in the top 10 in the form of Declan Rice, valued at €89.2m – which is the eighth highest ETV of any player in world football. The Englishman is behind Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr (€101.5m) and Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala (€93.7m).
