The rating is headed by the midfielder of the England national team and Borussia Dortmund Jude Bellingham, whose transfer fee is estimated at €208.2m with a price tag of €200.5 million. Vice-world champion in France team Kylian Mbappé closes the top three, his cost is 191.7 million. Vinicius ("Real") ;, €190.5m) and Erling Holland (€174.9m, Manchester City).
Messi and Ronaldo, who previously topped such lists for years, are now beyond the 100. According to the Transfermarkt portal, the transfer value of the Argentina national team leader is now 50 million, and the Portuguese football player — 20 million.
