REVEALED: Marcus Rashford Is Football's Most Valuable Player

REVEALED: Marcus Rashford Is Football's Most Valuable Player

Manchester United and England forward, Marcus Rashford is now football's most valuable player, according to the CIES Football Observatory.

Rashford topped the list at a value of €165m, while Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland (€152m) and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (€151m) complete the top three.

The 23-year-old's United teammate, Bruno Fernandes was placed fourth.

The CIES shows how much a club would have to pay to sign a player across Europe's big five leagues, based on advanced algorithms dictated by key factors such as a player's age, the length of their contract, their club's financial situation, any previous transfer fees, etc.

Rashford's value has risen this season on account of the 14 goals and seven assists he has racked up for the Red Devils and the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team can be considered English Premier League (EPL) title contenders for the first time in a while.

The Manchester United No.10 is contracted to the Old Trafford club until 2023 with the option of a further year.

Messi and Ronaldo

Meanwhile, Barcelona's Lionel Messi barely scraped into the top 100 while his eternal rival, Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus is ranked 131st.

CR7's placement probably because of his age and the relatively short time left on his Juve contract, which runs until June 2022.
