Mbappe, Haaland, Vinicius: The 50 most valuable footballers in the world

Kylian Mbappe recently rejected Real Madrid and signed a new three-year contract at Paris Saint-Germain.

The blockbuster deal will see the French forward become the highest-paid footballer in the world.

Mbappe‘s extension is an enormous positive for PSG and it’s also seen the man himself regain top spot on CIES‘ list of the most valuable players in the game right now.

Their valuations are based on each player’s talent, age and contract length, hence why Mbappe is now streets ahead of the rest.
