Messi for 5.5 crores and Neymar for 4 crores are being considered?
Who is the most expensive footballer in the world at the moment?
Not a very difficult thing as a quiz question. Football fans know the answer is Neymar! In 2017, he took the world record of transfer from Barcelona to PSG at an average of 222 million Euros.
Who is the second most expensive footballer?
Many people may not think this too. The simple answer! Killian Mbappe! Although he borrowed from Monaco in 2017, the PSGE bought him for 180 million euros the following year.
But this is the official price of the change of party. What is the market value of the car at the moment? Head hair is of no use. It is difficult to say this number by chance. However, the CIES Observatory, a website that studies the market value of footballers, has listed the prices of players in the top five leagues in Europe (England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France).
The published list will disappoint fans of Lionel Messi, Neymar, or Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi is 97th in the list of the top 100, his price is only 54 million euros as CIES! Ronaldo and Neymar are not in the top 100!
Manchester United’s English striker Marcus Rashford tops the list with a price tag of 165.6 million euros.
Finding out the price of footballers is a very complicated process! Clubs no longer give this responsibility to sports directors and analysts by paying huge sums of money!
However, their numbers also have some confusing calculations. The club from which the player will be bought, whether the club wants to release the player, how much the potential ‘seller’ club can ask for … are involved in matters that are difficult to measure.
Excluding those, CIES has fixed the prices of the players only based on certain ‘factors’. How much time is left in a player’s contract, his age, whether he plays in the national team, how important he is in the national team when he plays, what stage his career is at the moment, how his performance is — these things are calculated. With market inflation is calculated.
And from the club’s point of view, the player’s club is at a level in the field performance in Europe, financially or the club’s condition, these.
Above all, Rashford is now 23 years old and has a contract with Man United until 2024. The form is not bad for the club of Rashford, an important player in the England national team.
Borussia Dortmund’s 19-year-old Norwegian striker Earling Harland is second on the list after Rashford. For the last two seasons, he has been in dazzling form, scoring goal after goal — Harland is now in the center of interest of the big clubs in Europe. His price is 15 crore 20 lakh Euros.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, a 22-year-old English right back from Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s Champions League, English League, and FIFA Club World Cup winners Liverpool have relied heavily on defenses in the last two seasons, and Trent has been a major source of goals in the attack. According to CIES, his price is 15 crore 16 lakh Euros.
PSG’s French forward Killian Mbappe, who was at the top of the previous list of CIES, has dropped to five this time.
His contract with PSG expires in 2022, which may be the reason for the reduction in the price of MBAP. His price is shown as 14 crores 94 lakh Euros.
Man United’s Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandez is at the top of the list. Since joining United, the club has become lifeblood, with great rhythm.
That has affected prices. The price of this teammate of Ronaldo in the national team has been estimated at 15 crores 11 lakh Euros.
The other five in the top ten are Dortmund’s English forward Jaden Sancho, Atletico Madrid’s Portuguese forward Joao Felix, Bayern Munich’s Canadian left back / left winger Alfonso Daviser and Manchester Winger’s Manchester Winger.
Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah is 12th on the list. This year’s FIFA Footballer of the Year Robert Lewandowski is 55th (worth 72.1 million).
And Messi-Neymar-Ronaldo? Neymar has 18 months left on his contract. Ronaldo is the same. The remaining six months of Messi’s contract. Both Ronaldo and Messi have been in their thirties for a long time. Messi will turn 34 next June, with 29 days left until Ronaldo’s 36th birthday. The price will be lower!
Messi’s price in the list of 100 people in CIES is shown to be 54 million Euros. He is 97th on the list. In a previous description of their list, CIES wrote that Ronaldo is worth 47 million euros, he is the 131st on the list.
Neymar’s price was not mentioned in the description of the list. However, a separate ‘Values’ tab on the CIES website shows that Neymar’s price is only between 30 to 40 million euros or 3 to 40 million euros!
No club would want to buy Neymar at this price.
