Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr and Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka are ranked second and third respectively in the CIES Football Observatory’s latest report.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham came in at number four. Benfica defender Antonio Silva is the highest ranked player outside of Europe’s big five leagues.

The CIES Football Observatory utilised a wide variety of measures to create a scientific model, estimating the top 100 most expensive players.

The study took into account over 2,000 transactions of players transferred for money from clubs in the five major European leagues during the period July 2012 to November 2021.

Length of contract with players’ current clubs was also considered as well as age, goals, assists and appearances for the national team.
