Marcus Rashford had been named world’s most valuable player with a worth of £150million, according to the latest calculations by CIES Football Observatory.
While CIES Football Observatory named Rashford as world’s most valuable player, the likes of Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) and Bruno Fernandes (Man United) came 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectfully, with Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe ranked 5th.
Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland worth was put at £137.3m, Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold (£137m) and United attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes (£135.1m).
The CIES survey takes into account recent player performances as well as their age, contract situation and career progression plus their club’s wealth and success.
Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho makes the top 10 despite stuttering form at times this season and is valued at £134m, ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix on £127.9m.
Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies, Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Chelsea’s Kai Havertz close out the top 10 on the CIES list.
Manchester City’s Ederson Moraes is ranked as the most valuable goalkeeper at £71.9m.
With his Barcelona contract into its final six months, Lionel Messi only just scrapes into the top 100 with an estimated value of £48.8m.
But that’s still higher than Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, ranked 131st at £42.5m because of his age and the relatively short time left on his Juventus contract, which runs until June 2022.
