Bellingham, Haaland, and Vinicius world’s most valuable players, according to CIES

Jude Bellingham, Erling Haaland, and Vinicius Junior are the three most valuable players in world football, according to research group CIES Football Observatory.

Bellingham comes in as the most valuable player after having a stellar season with Real Madrid, with 17 goals in 22 matches in all competitions. The 20-year-old Bellingham is top of the list, having seen his estimated transfer value soar to €267.5m.

Erling Haaland is second at €251.5m, while Vinicius supposedly has a value of €250m. Vinicius scored 23 goals in 55 matches for Real Madrid last season, while Haaland helped Manchester City win the treble after scoring 52 goals in 53 matches.

The rest of the top 10 includes Real Madrid’s Rodrygo, Barcelona midfielder Gavi, Man City’s Phil Foden and Jualian Alvarez, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, and Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala.

Kylian Mbappe has just six months remaining on his contract, but he is still the 27th most expensive player on the list.

Nine of the top 10 hail from either the Premier League or La Liga, and represent a total of four clubs: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Arsenal.

The CIES Football Observatory annually publishes the list of the top 100 players in world football with the highest estimated transfer value. CIES’ research is based on a range of measures such as age, contract length, the value of the club, level of player performance, and inflation.
