The 20 most valuable players in the 5 best European leagues

2

The CIES Football Observatory has published its twice annual list of the most valuable players from the top five European leagues – Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1.

Transfer values ​​are objectively determined by an algorithm that takes into account a number of factors, including age and contract length. Attacking players are generally worth more, while younger players are more valuable in the long run than older players due to market inflation going forward.

A player’s current capacity alone won’t necessarily match their objective transfer value. Lionel Messi, for example, is only making it into the top 100 because he is 33 and only six months away from potentially becoming a free agent, while Cristiano Ronaldo is not in the top 100 because he is ‘he’s almost 36 years old and nearing the end. of her career. And this, although both are still world class.
