Another setback for Mbappe: No longer the world’s most valuable player

Another setback for Mbappe: No longer the world's most valuable player

Kylian Mbappe is set to be the next superstar of world football, which is why he was the most valued player on the planet at 170 million euros not long ago.

His numbers and achievements at such a young age are already impressive, and there is certainly a lot more to come.

However, another player has appeared on the scene and has snatched the label of the most valuable player from the Frenchman. It is the Norwegian striker Erling Haaland who, in the last update, has dethroned the PSG player.

How much is Haaland worth?

Transfermarkt updated its ranking of the most valuable players and the Manchester City forward is now top of the pile.

He went from having a valuation of 156 million euros to 170 million euros, surpassing the estimated figure for Mbappe.

Haaland joined Manchester City this season for 60m euros and has made an instant impact, becoming the top scorer in the Premier League with 17 goals and another five in the Champions League.

For his part, Mbappe’s value has dropped from 170m euros to 160m. Despite signing a mega contract extension with PSG and starting the season well, it was not enough for the Frenchman to stay at the top of this list.

At 23 years of age, he still has room to regain his position as the most valuable player and even increase his market value to over 200m.

Since Transfermarkt has compiled the list, it is the first time a Premier League player has topped the list. In the top 10 positions, four are from the Premier League, an example of the economic might of what for many is the best league competition in the world.

These are the 10 most valuable players in the world

  1. Erling Haaland: 170m euros
  2. Kylian Mbapp: 160m euros
  3. Vinicius Junior: 120m euros
  4. Phil Foden: 110m euros
  5. Jude Bellingham: 90m euros
  6. Pedri: 90m euros
  7. Bukayo Saka: 90m euros
  8. Harry Kane: 90m euros
  9. Dusan Vlahovic: 85m euros
  10. Jamal Musiala: 80m euros
