Kylian Mbappe, 2022-23

Kylian Mbappe has overtaken Erling Haaland to become the most valuable player in football.

Mbappe has seen his value rise from €142 million to €147m, while Haaland’s has dropped from €150m to €143.6m following a recent injury layoff.

Haaland's Man City team-mate Phil Foden has dropped one place and fallen out of the top three to be replaced by Real Madrid superstar Vini Junior.

Rounding out the top five is Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has endured a difficult start to the season and remains below the €100m valuation as a result.

Fellow England stars Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham come next in the ranking, with the latter storming into the top 10 after a brilliant start to the season with Borussia Dortmund.

Inter forward Lautaro Martinez moves up one place to eighth after helping to knock Barcelona out of the Champions League.

Ederson is ninth as he comes in with a value of €81.1m, the sole goalkeeper in the list.

Bruno Fernandes completes the top 10.

Raheem Sterling has gone from seventh most valuable player in the world to 22nd in the space of a month after a series of poor performances for Chelsea.
