New Player Replaces Neymar As World's Most Valuable Star, CR7 24th!

A new player has replaced Neymar as the world's most valuable star, while Lionel Messi dropped out of the top three and an ageing Cristiano Ronaldo climbed up to 24th position.

Click through the gallery above to see the highest valued players in football, and what they are currently worth, according to CIES.

The International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), a Swiss-based football statistics institute, has published its latest updated on the transfer values of Europe's top players. Multiple variables were taken into consideration, including player performances, age, contract length and potentially interested clubs.

In CIES' latest edition of their ranking, Harry Kane replaced Neymar at the top. The Tottenham Hotspur striker is valued at €201.2 million (R3 billion), while the Brazilian's worth dropped to €195.7 million (R2.88 billion).

French teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, who is valued at €186.5 million (R2.74 billion), climbed above Messi, said to be worth €184.2 million (R2.71 billion), to complete the podium.

Mohamed Salah, the highest valued African, jumped to fifth place with a value of €171.3 million (R2.52 billion).

Further down the ranking, Ronaldo – who, at 33, is the oldest player among the 100 most valuable stars – climbed from 49th position to 24th spot. He is now said to be valued at €103.4 million (R1.52 billion), which is €23 million (R338 million) more than he was rated in the previous update in January.
