Top 10 Most Valuable Players in the World

Nowadays, football clubs are not afraid to spend huge sum of money to go for players they need. It is sometimes interesting and sometimes ridiculous to move a huge sum of money for a particular player. I see it that in the next years to come, some players’ prices will be double of the present prices.

The craziest of all is the bit for the Brazilian International Neymer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-German for €222 million. One may ask is this real? Yes it is real.
You may be wondering why they do go for players for such huge amount. This is because the market values for a particular player is how well they play, age, their marketability and ability to sell shirts like when the Real Madrid star Christiano Ronaldo gave the club huge sum of money from shirt selling in 2009.
Unsurprisingly, the list is dominated by attacking players. Forwards and midfielders are undoubtedly the most popular players of all the big teams and it is no surprise to see their market value at such high prices.
Now let us know the most valuable player so far in the world. Below reveals the players. Relax and enjoy…

10 Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona) - £81 million

The Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho is the 10th most valuable player in world football at the moment after completing a move to his dream club Barcelona for a fee of £142 million.
In 2013, Liverpool signed him from Inter Milan for a fee of £8.5 million and the little magician soon captured the imagination of Liverpool fans with his stunning performances in the Premier League.
Coutinho is capable of playing in the centre of the park or as a left-winger and with his incisive passing, stunning long-range goals and great dribbling skills is definitely one of the best 'number 10s' in world football at the moment.
Liverpool tried to keep their star man, but in the end, the fee of £142 million took him on a move to Barcelona making him the second most expensive transfer of all time behind Neymar.
Coutinho will be the long-term replacement of Andres Iniesta and definitely has the skillset to become a huge success at Barcelona.

9 Paul Pogba (Manchester United) - £81.4 million

The Frenchman Paul Pogba is the world’s most expensive player just 1.5 years ago and has quickly become one of the most crucial Players in Manchester United. 
An absolute linchpin of the current Manchester United team, there is a notable difference in the way Jose Mourinho's team plays with and without the mercurial Frenchman. Capable of dominating the midfield battle almost highhandedly, Pogba can be a devastating and intimidating presence in the center of the pitch.
Although he initially struggled to live up to his huge transfer fee at Manchester United, In the latter parts of last season he really came into his own and played a crucial role in United's Europa League triumph.
With time, the huge fee paid by Manchester United for Pogba might start looking like a bargain.

8 Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) - £81.6 million

The 19 year old Frenchman Kylian Mbappe has gotten a high value due to his performance this season for his club Paris Saint--Germain. The 19 year old might be the become the all time second most expensive transfer if PSG finish his deal next summer. Although the Frenchman is on loan in Monaco. With his performance in his tender age he might become as great as the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

7 Eden Hazard (Chelsea) - £90 million

The Belgian Chelsea superstar, Eden Hazard is the 7th most valuable player in the world. The 27-year-old Belgian is one of the best players in the Premier League and hopefully he mignt be Ballon d'Or winner in future time.
Primarily playing as an attacking midfielder/winger, Hazard really matured as a world-class player during the 2014-15 season where he won the PFA Player of the Year award and guided Mourinho’s Chelsea to a stunning League title.
Linked with a move to Real Madrid ever since then, Hazard has only gone from strength to strength and has added a ruthless component to his game which has made him even more threatening.
The Belgian superstar recently rejected a new contract at Chelsea and we might just see Hazard shake up the transfer market and make a monumental move to Real Madrid in the coming months.

6 Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) - £90 million

The 26 year old Frenchman is the 6th most valuable player and one of the best forwards in the world of football at the moment. It seems his time at Atletico Madrid is coming to an end with the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona extremely keen on signing the 26-year-old. 
However, he did win the Golden boot in Euro 2016 and captured the imagination of fans all over the world with his brilliant performances.
Having had a slightly disappointing 2017 compared to his own high standards, the Frenchman will be looking to come back roaring in 2018. 

5 Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) - £99 million

The 26 year old Belgian star is 5th most valuable player and one of the most complete midfielders in the world of football. Kevin De Bruyne is undoubtedly the jewel in the Manchester City crown. Known for his immaculate technique, a wide range of passing skills and ability to score spectacular long-range goals, De Bruyne has been key to City’ s consistent performances in both the Premier League and Champions League.
Achieving some great things in Manchester City, Kevin De Bruyne is arguably the best midfielder in world football at the moment.

4 Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) - £108 million

One of the greatest players to ever play the game, Cristiano Ronaldo had a stellar first half of 2017 where he won the Champions League and La Liga. Having drawn level with Messi at 5 Ballon d'Ors, the Portuguese superstar will be determined to defy age and prove to everyone once again why he deserves to be considered the best footballer in the world.
Having suffered a stuttering campaign in the League, Ronaldo has shown his true class in the Champions League where he became the first player in the history of the competition to score in all 6 group matches.
With the League already out of Madrid's hands, Ronaldo and co will be determined to have a serious crack at the Champions League one again and it will be interesting to see if the Portuguese superstar manages to salvage Los Blancos' miserable season so far.
Despite Ronaldo's age at 32, the Portuguese superstar makes the 4th most valuable player in the world today.

3 Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - £108.4 million

The best striker and finisher in world football at the moment, Harry Kane has seen his stock rise exponentially in the last 3 years. No longer a one season wonder, the Tottenham frontman has banged in goal after goal to quickly establish himself as one of the hottest properties in football.
Kane's incredible goalscoring form can be seen from the fact that he even finished ahead of Ronaldo and Messi in the 2017 goalscoring charts. A truly incredible achievement.
Completely dedicated to the game, Kane revealed that he had to sacrifice a lot in order to compete with the likes of Ronaldo and Messi and leave the rest of the continent behind.

Kane has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid and we might soon see the English striker make a big money move to the Bernabeu.

2 Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain) - £135 million

The Brazilian superstar makes the 2nd in the list after making a mouth watering move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer. In future time he might be a winner of Balloon d'Or and also the most valuable player in the world. Neymar with teammates Cavani and Mbappe as attackers breaks their opponent defences and makes PSG a treat both in Europe and domestic leagues.

Having secured the 3rd place in Ballon d'Or 2017 rankings, the Brazilian forward will be determined to do even better this season and finish on top ahead of the likes of Messi and Ronaldo.
Tipped to be a future Ballon d'Or winner by the likes of Pele and the legendary Ronaldo, Neymar will have a chance to impress and cement his legacy in the 2018 World Cup coming up in Russia.
The Brazilian superstar in his current form might be the most valuable player in the world next year to come.

1 Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - £162 million

The Argentinian and Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is the most valuable player in the world. He is one of the greatest in our generation along side his rival Cristiano Ronaldo who both have dominated football for the past 10 years.

However, the Argentinian should have been the greatest player of all time but due to his inability to lift the FIFA World Cup trophy with his country. He has done a lot for his club and he is the best Barcelona have ever had. The argument of who is the greatest between the two rivals increases as day passes by.

The 30-year-old has been in ominous form this season and it seems like the Argentine is determined to break all kinds of records once again.
