Ronaldo cut down to size in 'most valuable' player study

Spurs striker Harry Kane is valued at £194 million and only PSG star Neymar and five time Balon d'Or victor Lionel Messi are worth more.

Neymar's valuation of €213million (AU$369m) is more than double that of Ronaldo, who is considered to be worth €80.4m (AU$138m).

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).

Premier League players also feature heavily in the top 30 most valuable players, and each of the top six has at least one member of their squad included.

Kane is enjoying another stellar season with Spurs this time around and has found the back of the net 18 times in the Premier League and tops the goalscoring charts aleady.

The CIES Football Observatory values Neymar at €213m in its annual table of the top 100 most valuable players on the planet. Whereas, Paul Pogba is tenth in the list.

Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe screamed on to the big stage with Monaco previous year and then followed Neymar to Paris in the summer in a deal worth €180m plus bonuses.

Neymar is evidently Ligue 1's most valuable player, with Messi (€202.2m) leading the way for LaLiga players.

Amazingly, Philippe Coutinho, who made a massive £142 million transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona this week, doesn't even rank in the top 15.

Interestingly, Cristiano Ronaldo is down in 49th place, valued at around £71m, as he approaches his 33rd birthday. He is valued at £108.6m - a substantial amount less than what the Catalan giants had to shell out.
