Neymar 'the most valuable player in the world'

Liam Hanna by Liam Hanna @LiamPHanna - 0 2,890

According to the Football Observatory (CIES), Neymar is currently the most valuable player in world football.

The list, shared by 'France Football', shows the 50 most valuable footballers in the world. Neymar tops the list, being valued at €250m, while the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale all appear in the top 10.

Neymar appears above team-mate Lionel Messi (€190m) largely down to Messi's age. Messi is approaching 30 years old, while the Brazilian still has a big future ahead of him.

Antoine Griezmann (€135m) is in third place, but is still worth almost half the value of Neymar.

Cristiano Ronaldo (€130m) and Paul Pogba (€125m) make up the top five, while perhaps surprisingly, Gareth Bale (€110m) and Luis Suarez (€95m) are in sixth and seventh place, respectively.
