Top 10 most valuable footballers on planet with Man Utd star Rashford top and England dominating list with four players

January 6, 2021

MANCHESTER UNITED star Marcus Rashford is the most-valuable player in the world.

CIES Football Observatory recently revealed who they believe to be the top-valued players in the world.

Their algorithm uses such factors as performance, age and contract length, as well as they club and country represented.

And based on all of those factors and more, Man Utd ace Rashford, 23, is the world's most-valuable player – worth a staggering £150million.

The list is dominated by young stars, with Cristiano Ronaldo failing to breakinto the top 100.

The Juventus ace, now 35, is way down in 131st place, with 33-year-old rival Lionel Messi sitting in 97th.

The entire list makes for great reading for England, with FOUR Three Lions stars in the top ten alone.

Rashford sits top, valued at £150m, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, 22, third (£137m), Jadon Sancho, 20, sixth (£134m) and Raheem Sterling, 26, ninth (£124m).

Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Haaland, 20, is second, rated at £138m.

Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes, 26 – who has turned around the club's fortunes since he arrived in January 2020 – is fourth, valued at £135m.


Kylian Mbappe – arguably the most sought-after star in world football – is only fifth.

The Paris Saint-Germain and France ace, 22, is wanted by the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool.

But Mbappe is valued at £135m, £15m less than Rashford, in part due to having just 18 months left on his contract.

Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix, 21, comes in seventh (£128m) just ahead of 20-year-old Bayern Munich whiz Alphonso Davies (£126m).

Chelsea new boy Kai Havertz, 21, rounds-off the top ten, valued at £123m.

The German ace has struggled since his £72m move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

But boss Frank Lampard blamed him testing positive for coronavirus in November for his slow transition.

Just SIX more players on the entire planet are valued at over £100m.

Timo Werner (£122m) sits just below team-mate Havertz, with Liverpool star Mohamed Salah (£121m) one place further back.

Manchester City defender Ruben Dias (£115m) is next, with Salah's Reds team-mate Sadio Mane (£112m) below him.

Arsenal's 19-year-old wonderkid Bukayo Saka (£105m) and Inter Milan winger Achraf Hakimi (£103m) are the final players to be valued at over £100m.

Chelsea and England ace Mason Mount, 21, just misses the cut at £99m.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane, 27, sits two spots further valued at £97m.
