Marcus Rashford tops most-valuable players list

Marcus Rashford

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been ranked as the most valuable footballer in Europe’s major leagues by research group CIES Football Observatory.

The biannual list of the ‘big five’ league players with the greatest transfer values factors in age and contract length.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold and Man Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes join Marcus Rashford in the top five, where Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe also feature as per CIES Football Observatory

Rashford’s estimated value is £150.1m given the 23-year-old England international has more than two years remaining on his current contract, plus the option of a further year.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold (£137.4m) is third on the list behind Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland (£137.8m), while Rashford’s team-mate Bruno Fernandes is fourth (£136.9m).

Kylian Mbappe (£135.4m) had previously headed the list, but with 18 months left on his current deal, the Paris Saint-Germain striker’s estimated value has seen him drop to fifth.

England trio Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka have all been deemed to have values of more than £100m, with Mason Mount, Harry Kane and Mason Greenwood all above the £90m-mark.
