Because the 23-year-old attacker from France is now under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until mid-2025, he is at the top of the list with an estimated transfer value of 205.6 million euros. The 21-year-old Brazilian Vinícius Junior (maker of the winning goal in the Champions League final and in possession of a contract until 2024 with Real Madrid) and his Norwegian peer Erling Haaland (recently signed a five-year contract with Manchester City) follow at an appropriate distance from Mbappé with transfer values ​​of 185.3 and 152.6 million euros respectively.

Top 10 most expensive players

2. Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid) 185.3 million euros
3. Erling Haaland (Manchester City) 152.6 million euros

The tallest Dutchman on the list is Frenkie de Jong in seventh place. Because the 25-year-old midfielder signed a long-term commitment until mid-2026 in Barcelona at the end of 2020, the CIES estimates his transfer value to be high: 112.5 million euros. A shortcoming of the research is also immediately apparent: the algorithm of the CIES does not take the financial situation of clubs into account.

According to Spanish media, Barcelona is prepared to let De Jong go for around 80 million euros. Erik ten Hag would like to bring De Jong to Manchester United to shape his new team, but in 2019 Pep Guardiola also wanted to bring him to Manchester. The price tag of Pedri, De Jong’s 19-year-old teammate in midfield at Barcelona, ​​is estimated at 135 million euros. On October 13, 2021, Pedri signed a new contract with Barcelona, ​​which included a clause of 1 billion euros.
