Haaland, Mbappé, Vinicius… Who is the most expensive player at the moment? The CIES (Site notre bureau spécialisé) observatory has established the ranking of the highest market values ​​before the opening of the next transfer window. A ranking made taking into account the age, the duration of the contract and the performance of the players (passes, dribbles, interceptions, etc.)

Top of the leaderboard? Erling Haaland. The value of the march is estimated at 245 million euros, and it is contracted to Manchester City which is expected to last until 2027.

The Norwegian striker is followed by Vinicius Jr. Real Madrid’s game is estimated at 196 million euros by CIES.

In third place, we find the young player from Arsenal Bukayo Sakawhose market value is estimated at 195 euros.

And Kylian Mbappe? PSG’s tie is only in 10th place in the CIES rankings with an estimated market value of €162m.

According to CIES, his value is less important because of the duration of his contract which ends at the end of 2024 with the Parisian club.« If his contract with PSG was for at least three years, on the other hand, the striker of the France team would be on the podium », specifies the CIES.
