The top 100 most expensive players in La Liga

Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann are in the top three most expensive players in La Liga

Lionel Messi is remarkable.

The Argentinian forward may now be 32 years old, but he remains the very best in the world.

That was highlighted with him winning FIFA's The Best Men's Player of the Year award earlier this week.

Despite his age, Barcelona will see him as invaluable and will not want to sell him - unless his €700m release clause is met.

Let's be honest, that isn't happening any time soon.

But how much is he actually worth? And how does he compare to the rest of La Liga?

Eden Hazard and Lionel Messi are joint most expensive players in La Liga

So Hazard and Messi share top spot.

It says a lot that Messi is valued the same as Hazard - despite being four years his senior and supposedly nearing the end of his career.

Griezmann, who moved to Barcelona for £108 million this summer, is the only other player worth over three digits.

The top 10 is dominated by Atletico Madrid players (4) and Barcelona players (5). Hazard is Real Madrid's only player inside the top 10.

Nabil Fekir is valued at £54m

Fekir is the most expensive player who doesn't play for one of the big three teams. He places 15th and is valued at £54m, despite signing for just £20m this summer.

Bale, once one of the best players in the world, is now only the 22nd most expensive players in La Liga with a value of £54m.

Fati, Barcelona's 16-year-old wonder-kid is valued at £22.5m while reigning Ballon d'Or winner Modric barely breaks into the top 100.
