Let’s forget about the performances; on 31 August 2017, Paris Saint-Germain announced the signing of Mbappé from Monaco on loan. The fee was set at a rumored €145 million plus €35 million in add-ons, potentially making him the second most expensive player, only behind teammate Neymar.
3. Harry Kane (Tottenham) –€194.7M
2. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) –€202.2M
In the full list, Barcelona contributed both the most valuable goalkeeper on the list (Marc-André ter Stegen at €96m) and the most valuable defender (Samuel Umtiti at €101m); with Messi leading the way for La Liga players.
1. Neymar Jr. (PSG) –€213M
Neymar is evidently Ligue 1’s most valuable player; he is valued more than double as much as Cristiano Ronaldo. He may be estimated at a lower value than the €222 million Paris Saint-Germain paid last summer. But he still tops the list.
