Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford sits at the top of the table with a value of £150 million with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland valued at £137.3 million and PSG’s Mbappe valued at £135 million.

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes make up the other two spots in the Top 5 with six time ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi scraping into the Top 100 due to his contract being ready to dun out this summer.

Long time rival and five time ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo sits in 131st at a value of £42.5 million mainly due to his age and the short period left on his contract with Juventus which is due to expire in 2022.
