Lionel Messi dropped down to fourth, while Cristiano Ronaldo fell outside the top 10 – here are the 20 stars with the highest transfer values in football right now.

Click through the gallery above to see the top 20 stars with the highest transfer values in Europe, according to CIES.

The Argentine was the highest valued player in the International Centre for Sports Studies' (CIES) 100 most valuable footballers in Europe's top five leagues last year, but his worth has dropped from €211.1 million (R3.04 billion) to €151.7 million (R2.18 billion).

The institute calculated the transfer values of the 100 most valuable footballers in Europe's top five leagues based on certain key indicators, including age and contract length.

Messi has been replaced as the most valuable by his teammate Neymar, whose transfer worth has been calculated at €210.7 million (R3.03 billion).

Two Tottenham Hotspur stars, namely Dele Alli and Harry Kane, now sit behind Neymar, while Messi dropped to fourth place.

Antoine Griezmann, €150.3 million (R2.16 billion) sits in fifth place, followed by Luis Suarez (€140.8 million, R2.03 billion) and world-record signing Paul Pogba (€134.3 million, R1.93 billion).

Gonzalo Higuain (€120.2 million, R1.73 billion), Eden Hazard (€117.2 million, R1.69 billion) and Paulo Dybala (€115.3 million, R1.66 billion) complete CIES' top 10.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, dropped from €137.8 million (R1.98 billion) in 2016 to €112.4 million (R1.62 billion) in 2017. In the ranking of the 20 highest valued players, the Portuguese has fallen from third to 11th place.

He remains, however, the highest valued player of Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League-winning squad, while FC Barcelona have three stars in the top 10.
