Neymar, Lionel Messi, Harry Kane… the top ten most valuable stars across Europe revealed

PHILIPPE COUTINHO clinched his £145million move from Liverpool to Barcelona this month… but still doesn’t feature amongst Europe’s ten most valuable players.

According to data from the CIES Football Observatory, the new Barca forward comes in only 16th, valued at £109m.

That means, based on factors such as age, contract length and international appearances, the La Liga giants paid £36m over the odds for the “Little Magician”.

Outside of the top ten, massive names such as Mohamed Salah, Leroy Sane, Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling all narrowly miss out.

But who makes the top ten when it comes to the most valuable players in Europe?

In first place, somewhat unsurprisingly is Neymar – valued at £189m – who swapped Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain for £198m last summer in a world-record deal.

The Brazilian is followed by former team-mate Lionel Messi, who is worth £179m – narrowly above Tottenham star Harry Kane.

The England ace sits third in the list, valued at £172m, with team-mate Dele Alli sixth, worth around £152m.

Sandwiched between the Spurs duo sit superstars Kylian Mbappe (£170m) and Paulo Dybala (£155m).

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne ranks seventh according to the report, valued at £149m.

Manchester United appeared to have got a bargain in Romelu Lukaku too when they landed him for £75m from Everton in the summer.

The Belgian forward is now worth a sky-high £146m, ahead of Antoine Griezmann (£133m) in ninth.

Lukaku’s United team-mate Paul Pogba – bought for £89m 18 months ago – is now valued at £131m in the study.
