Because Lionel Messi joined PSG as a free agent, PSG did not have to pay Barcelona a single euro. Moreover, they also signed a striker valued at €80 million at the age of 34, who is perhaps the greatest player of all time.
Further, the addition of Messi and Sergio Ramos to their star-studded lineup has increased the Parisians’ value significantly. However, according to Transfermarkt, they aren’t the most valuable team in the top ten.
- Manchester City – €1.06bn
- Chelsea – €996.5m
- PSG – €993.75m
- Liverpool – €904.5m
- Manchester United – €858.25m
- Real Madrid – €848.5m
- Bayern Munich – €818.5m
- Barcelona – €763m
- Atletico Madrid – €729.4m
- Tottenham – €704m
Manchester City, obviously, is at the top of the list, having just fielded the most expensive side in history in their 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur. Moreover, according to Transfermarkt, the overall market worth of their squad is £955.6 million.
Chelsea, who won the Champions League, is second, thanks to the £97.5 million purchase of Romelu Lukaku.
In addition, Thomas Tuchel’s team is valued at £898.2 million. PSG, who spent £894.4 million on Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, and Georginio Wijnaldum, is in third place. Manchester United, which has been bolstered by the arrivals of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho this summer, is next on the list, with a valuation of £835.4 million.
Additionally, Liverpool is next at £814 million, having only purchased Ibrahima Konate this year. Bayern Munich completed their recruitment of Dayot Upamecano, Omar Richards, and Sven Ulreich early this summer. Also, they are in sixth place, with a total value of £736.7 million. Finally, the Spanish heavyweights are up next, with Real Madrid leading the way with £700 million. Barcelona, on the other hand, is in seventh place with £694.5 million after losing Messi.
Atletico Madrid’s title winners are ranked ninth with a value of £656.5 million. Further, Tottenham – €704m at the 10th position.
We have come to the end of this article and we have the list of 10 players and also the addition of Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos to their star-studded team has greatly improved the Parisians’ valuation.
