Egyptian international footballer Mohamed Salah became one of the top 10 valuable players in the world, according to Transfermarkt.
Liverpool’s star Salah ranked fourth, with a market value of €150m, equalling the 2018 World Cup winner Kélien Mbappé, who plays with Paris Saint-Germain. Salah was followed by Tottenham Hotspur’s striker Harry Kane and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, who came in the fifth and sixth places, respectively, with the same market value.
Brazilian star Neymar da Silva, player of Paris Saint-Germain, topped the list of most valuable players, with a market value of €180m, while Argentinean star Lionel Messi came second with the same market value.
French Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Brazilian Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona), and Belgian Eden Hazard (Chelsea) surpassed Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, who finished 13th with a market value of €100m after his move to Italian giant Juventus during this summer transfer window.
Salah, 26, joined Liverpool in a club-record €42m transfer deal from AS Roma last June. He managed to break several records in his debut season, which contributed to massively increasing his market value.
Salah signed a few weeks ago a new five-year contract with the Premier League team until 2023 and doubled his wage to around £200,000 a week.
