Neymar and Mbappé are expensive. We don't teach you anything. But like really expensive. You are still taught nothing. In short. The two Parisians are the best-valued players among the teams of defending champion clubs in the eight main European championships, according to a study published Wednesday by the audit and consultancy firm KPMG.
In the 11 type established by KPMG, we therefore find Mbappé, whose value is estimated at 225 million and Neymar, evaluated at 185 million (410 million between them). FC Barcelona places three players there: Lionel Messi (180 million), Frenkie De Jong (106) and Marc-André ter Stegen (88). Three Manchester City elements also appear in this typical team with Kevin De Bruyne (130), Rodrigo (72) and Aymeric Laporte (70).
The English club is the one that also has the best valued overall workforce with 1.279 billion euros thanks in particular to Raheem Sterling (150) and Bernardo Silva (92), not present in the 11. Barcelona follows with 1.209 billion (including 125 million for Griezmann, 2nd most valued Barcelona player behind Messi). PSG is 3rd with 957 million euros. Behind Mbappé and Neymar, we find Marquinhos very, very far behind (61).
+ 17% turnover in one year for PSG
The average value of the champion teams is 745 million euros, but the study reveals great disparities. The Barcelona, Manchester City and PSG teams are worth more than 10 times more than that of Turkish champion Galatasaray.
The study also reveals that FC Barcelona recorded a record turnover of 839.5 million euros in the 2018-2019 season and is ahead of Paris SG (636 million euros) in this Top 8. If the Spanish club occupies the first place in this classification of champions with a comfortable lead over Paris, the French club is distinguished by a growth of its turnover of 17% in one year.
