There is one Chelsea player and three former Blues in the CIES Football Observatory’s latest valuation rankings.

As reported by France Football, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is, by CIES’ calculations, the most valuable footballer on the planet at €201.2M. This is after FIFA announced that he is the heaviest player heading to Russia for this year’s World Cup. S’pose you could say that he really is worth his weight in gold.

The only Chelsea representative in the top 20 is, shock horror, Eden Hazard. CIES report that the Belgian is worth €124.7M, the 17th most valuable footballer in the world. He’s sandwiched between Manchester City starlet Gabriel Jesus and Barcelona goal-machine Luis Suarez.

Mohamed Salah (3rd, €171.3M), Kevin de Bruyne (7th, €167.2M) and Romelu Lukaku (10th, €163.4M) all make the top twenty. The trio are valued at the combined €501.9M – perhaps the club did sell them too soon after all…
