The 100 most valuable players in WORLD football have been revealed.
But England captain Harry Kane is only 30th on the star-studded list.
And there is NO place for legendary couple Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Experts from the CIES Football Observatory have been at full speed compiling numbers from around the world to determine the 100 most valuable footballers.
And they have established that Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe is the most valuable player in the world.
The Frenchman has just signed a lucrative new deal at PSG, snubbing Real Madrid in the process.
And Mbappe’s transfer value has been valued at a staggering £175m.
That’s almost £20m more than second best player, Reals Vinicius Jr.
He is valued at £158m after firing his team to another Champions League title.
And in third place is Man City’s new signing Erling Haaland, valued at £130m – that’s £79m more than the Premier League champions paid for him.

Barcelona star Pedri is fourth, while Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and City’s Phil Foden occupy the next two places.
Barca’s Frenkie de Jong, who is heavily linked with Man Utd, is seventh.
And he is followed by Liverpool’s Luis Diaz, Man City’s Ruben Dias and teammate Ferran Torres to complete the top 10.
There is pain, however, for Spurs and England star Kane, who just barely made the top 30 at his £66million valuation.
But don’t waste your thoughts on icons Ronaldo and Messi as neither the Man Utd star nor the PSG ace even enter the top 100 equation.
Elsewhere, PSG’s Gianluigi Donnarumma is the best goalkeeper in the world.
And Darwin Nunez, linked to the Premier League, is considered the world’s best player outside of Europe’s top five leagues.
Finally, Barcelona’s Gavi is the youngest star on the list at 17.
And Kevin De Bruyne is the oldest, with the ace turning 31 this month.
