Ranking of the world most expensive football players.

Three young English stars have been prized as the most expensive footballers in the world in CIES’ end-of-season report.

Phil Foden, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford are No 1, 2, and 3 respectively, with their values surpassing the likes of Erling Haaland and Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester City and England player Foden comes out on top at £163million, while United pair Greenwood and Rashford are valued at £153m and £137m respectively.

The revelation will come as a huge lift to Ed Woodward and United, with two of the hottest assets in world football on their books going into the summer window.

Haaland, meanwhile, is the top non-English player in the table with his evaluated estimate of £133m, while Fernandes is £132m.

Kylian Mbappe, perhaps surprisingly, is down in 12th position with just a year left on his Paris Saint-Germain contract and is worth just £9m more than Chelsea’s Timo Werner – and less than Mason Mount.

In fact, Mount is the fourth highest-valued English player at £106m, while Jadon Sancho, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Bukayo Saka are all in the top 20 too.

Manchester City’s Ederson is the top-ranked goalkeeper at £53.2m, while his club teammate Ruben Dias (£98m) is the most valuable centre-back.


Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich tops the full-back list at £113m, while Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong is prized at £118m – the highest of any player at the Nou Camp, and just leading of his young team-mate Pedri.

There are just three players at the top of the list who are over 25 years of age – Fernandes, Werner, and City’s Bernardo Silva.

Silva is the oldest at 26, with his Etihad deal running through until 2025. Pedri meanwhile is the youngest on the list having been born in 2002, and at the age of 18, it would be no shock to see him rise higher in the coming years.

The majority of players in the top 25 will be heading to the Euros this summer, with only four not taking part in the tournament.

Two of the four are in the top four in the world, with Greenwood not in Gareth Southgate’s team due to injury, while Haaland’s Norway didn’t make the cut.

Elsewhere, Davies plays his international football for Canada, and Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr is Brazilian and heading to the Copa America.
