Top 10: Estimated values of world’s best players (11)

Published 10 Comments

1. Lionel Messi | Value: £200m

Football News

Lionel Messi has a £250m release clause in his contract, but Barcelona would surely seriously consider any bid around the £200m mark.

Messi hasn’t looked himself at times this season, leading some to wonder whether the world’s best player wants a new challenge in his career, possibly at Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain.

Others believe he’s simply suffering from a lack of confidence. Messi, contrary to popular belief, is still only a human being at the end of the day.

At 26, it’s possible that Messi could take his game up another level. But if Barcelona feel that the four-time Ballon d’Or winner’s best years are already behind them, perhaps they would accept a bid of around the £200m-mark in the coming months.
