The value was calculated using a transfer value algorithm that takes into account player performance, age and length of contract while estimating the values. Lionel Messi has been valued at £149m while Manchester United’s £89m summer signing Paul Pogba’s current price was determined to be £136.4m. Cristiano Ronaldo was estimated at £111m behind Antoine Griezmann(£132m) and Luis Suarez(£127m).
