Who are the most valuable footballers in the world at the moment?

The summer of 2022 saw Kylian Mbappe sign a historic deal with Paris Saint-Germain that made him the most expensive player on the club's star-studded roster.

Mbappe initially appeared to be very close to joining Real Madrid on a free transfer, but eventually decided to stay in Paris as the club made him an offer he simply could not turn down.

The Frenchman is currently the most valued footballer in the transfer market with an estimated valuation of €180 million.

He is closely followed by Manchester City's star forward Erling Haaland, who is valued at €170m following his sublime performances in the Premier League.

Real Madrid wonderkid Vinicius Jr. completes the podium with a value of €120m, ahead of England and Borussia Dortmund sensation Jude Bellingham and City ace Phil Foden.
