Nowadays, footballers are sold for excessively large sums of money.
Football teams are not hesitant to spend massive sums of money on the players they want,
whether it’s Neymar’s stunning world record transfer to PSG or Coutinho’s mind-boggling transfer to Barcelona.
The list is dominated by attacking players, which is unsurprising.
Forwards and midfielders are without a doubt the most popular players in all of the major leagues,
therefore it’s no surprise that their market worth is so high.
The market value of a player is determined by how well they play, their age,
their marketability, and their ability to sell shirts. Without further ado, here are the top ten most valuable players on the planet:
Eden Hazard, the Chelsea superstar, is the world’s seventh most valuable player.
The Belgian, who is 27 years old,
has long tipped as a future Ballon d’Or winner and is unquestionably one of the top players in the Premier League.
Hazard, who primarily played as an offensive midfielder/winger,
blossomed into a world-class player during the 2014-15 season, winning the PFA Player of the Year award and leading Mourinho’s Chelsea to a stunning League triumph.
Hazard, who has linked with a move to Real Madrid since then,
has only improved since then, adding a ruthless element to his game that has made him even more dangerous.
Harry Kane, the best striker and finisher in the world right now,
has seen his stock climb enormously in the previous three years.
The Tottenham striker is no longer a one-season wonder, as he has scored goal after goal to quickly establish himself as one of the game’s hottest talents.
Kane’s goal-scoring prowess was evidenced by the fact that he finished ahead of Ronaldo and Messi in the 2017 goalscoring lists. A absolutely remarkable accomplishment.
By far the most expensive player in the world,
Neymar has made an immediate impact after a contentious summer transfer from Barcelona to PSG. The Brazilian sensation,
along with teammates Cavani and Mbappe, has blown away opponent defences and transformed PSG into a legitimate power in France and Europe.
After finishing third in the Ballon d’Or rankings last season, the Brazilian striker will be aiming to perform even better this season and finish first ahead of Messi and Ronaldo.
Neymar, who has been tipped as a potential Ballon d’Or winner by the likes of Pele and Ronaldo, will have a chance to impress and establish his legacy at the 2018 World Cup.
Neymar, the clear star of PSG’s star-studded team, might be the most valued player on the planet next year.
Despite all the transfer costs, breakthrough stars, and outrageous market values, Lionel Messi,
the standout footballer of this generation together with Cristiano Ronaldo, remains the most valuable player in the world.
The only thing keeping Messi from being dubbed the best player of all time is the fact that he has yet to win a World Cup.
Mascherano’s astonishing statements regarding Messi demonstrate the importance of the little magician to Barcelona and the club: “[Messi] is required, while the rest of us are optional.
– No, the club is bigger than any manager or player… with the exception of Leo. That is the truth, and you must embrace it.”
