PSG's Neymar Named Most Valuable Football Player In Europe

PSG's Neymar Named Most Valuable Football Player In Europe
1/04/2019
Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is the most valuable footballer in the world according to KPMG.
Financial experts KPMG have launched a new tool to estimate the values of Europe's top footballers, with 26-year-old Neymar coming out on top at £206.5million (N95.9billion).

Neymar's PSG team-mate Kylian Mbappe, 20, is second on the list with an estimated value of £193.8m (N90bn), while 31-year-old Barcelona legend Lionel Messi takes third place with a worth of £183.2m (N85bn).

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is the priciest English Premier League player, with his £151.6m (N70.39bn) value keeping him above Tottenham striker Harry Kane (£136.1m/N63bn), Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard (£133.5m/N61.12bn) and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne (£116.6m/N54bn).

Atletico Madrid's French frontman Antoine Griezman (£113.2m/N52.7bn), Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba (£107.5m/N49.9bn) and Barca schemer Philippe Coutinho (£106.5m/N49.5bn) complete the top 10.

Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo is outside of the top 10 on £96.5m (N46.9bn), which is £8.5m (N4.9bn) more than what the Serie A side paid Real Madrid to sign him last summer.

Ronaldo's age — he will be 34 in early February — is the main reason the Portugal captain isn't higher up the list.

1. Neymar, PSG (£206.5m/N95.9bn)
