Paris St. Germain’s young prodigy Kylian Mbappe is the most valuable footballer in the world, according to a new study by the CIES Football Observatory.

The CIES’ transfer values is based on an algorithm that factors in tangible elements like contract duration, age, position and league of employment amongst many others.

The 20-year-old capped off a phenomenal first season at the Parc des Princes by winning a domestic double in Ligue 1, before going on to star in France’s World Cup triumph in Russia in the summer.

Mbappe’s meteoric rise is rewarded by seeing his value increase from €186.5m last June, to a mammoth €218.5m this year. The Frenchman’s valuation is €21.4m higher than his PSG teammate Neymar, whom he was below in CIES’ last study.

Despite Mbappe’s table-topping exploits, the Premier League once again dominates CIES’ study with twelve players in the top 20 chart. Even with his contract expiring next year, Chelsea and Belgium superstar Eden Hazard is still regarded as having a value of €129m; higher than five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo (€127.2m).
