Neymar Named Most Valuable Player

After leaving Barcelona in order to escape the shadow of Lionel Messi, Neymar has beaten the Argentine in one measure - being rated the world's highest value player. 
The CIES Football Observatory has published its annual rankings of how much players in the top five European leagues - the English Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and the Bundesliga - are worth, based on factors including age, position, contract duration, performance and international status.

The list, published every January, ranks Neymar top, with a value of €213million (£188million, 90 billion) while Messi trails in second, worth €202.2m (£178.5m, N84.9bn).

Harry Kane's increasing status in world football is reflected by being ranked third by the Football Observatory, with the Tottenham Hotspur striker valued at €194.7m (£172m, 82 billion).

Kane's Spurs team-mate Dele Alli (€171.3m, £151.25m, N73.5bn ), Manchester United pair Romelu Lukaku (€164.8m, £145.5m, N70.9bn) and Paul Pogba (€147.5m, £130m, N62bn) and Manchester City string-puller Kevin De Bruyne (€167.8m, £148m, N70.5bn) are the other Premier League players sited in the top ten.
