Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling both rank in the top five of a new study listing the 100 most valuable players in football right now.
The latest list from the CIES Football Observatory sees Kylian Mbappé rated as the world’s richest asset with a transfer value of €252 million. The PSG striker is linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer and if was to go through at value, he’d become the most expensive footballer of all time.
Mo Salah comes in second with a value of €220 million, with Sterling third at €208 million. Lionel Messi is fourth at €167 million, and 19-year-old Jadon Sancho completes the top five with an estimated transfer value of €159 million.
