Ranking without Ronaldo

Open source

The European Football Championship will start on June 11. Many top players will be gathered at Euro 2020 and we introduce our readers to the most expensive footballers of the continental championship.

As part of the Ukrainian national team, the most expensive footballer was Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovsky (30 million euros). Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City and Viktor Tsygankov from Dynamo Kyiv are estimated at 25 million euros.

The cost of a football player is a relative concept. The Transfermarkt portal deals with the financial assessment of football players and although their prices may differ from real ones, it displays the market value and level of the player as closely as possible. Note that in the top nine there is no one of the best footballers in the world, the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, whose cost is estimated at 45 million euros.

Harry Kane, England, Tottenham, 120 million euros

Open source

The Tottenham striker has been playing in London for a long time. Every transfer window it is sold to one club, then to another. And it's not in vain, Kane shows bright football from season to season. So this game year, the forward became the top scorer and assistant of the English Championship, having made 23 goals and 14 assists in 35 matches. He was deservedly nominated for the prize of the best football player in the country.

Now the British media "match" the striker in "Chelsea" and "Manchester City". About the second, there is even information that the "townspeople" are ready to pay the 120 million euros prescribed in the contract. But the player himself does not seem to think of anything other than the Euro. "If I end my career without winning the England trophy, it will be a failure. I know that we are still developing, we still have the opportunity to progress, but that is the goal. I think we can do it," muses Kane.

Killian Mbappé, France, PSG, 160 million euros

Romelu Lukaku, Belgium, Inter, 100 million euros

Open source

This season, the Belgian striker was one of the leaders of Inter who won the Italian championship. And Romelu himself was recognized as the best player in the tournament. Lukaku clearly wanted Antonio Conte to stay at the club, but he left the team. And Lukaku himself, who had previously confessed his love for Milan, is already ready to look for a new team. Plus, the management of “Inter” now wants to greatly cut financial costs and is ready to sell the forward.

The main contender for the Belgian striker is London Chelsea. The president of the “aristocrats” Roman Abramovich will give Thomas Tehul a decent amount for transfers and the German coach wants to see Lukaku. Abramovich also wants to return the Belgian to London and is personally involved in the transfer negotiations.

Jadon Sancho, England, Borussia Dortmund, 100 million euros

Open source

This season, Borussia Dortmund was content with only a victory in the German Cup. And in the final of the tournament one of the key roles was played by the English midfielder, who scored a double at the goal of Leipzig. In the Bundesliga, Sancho became one of the best assistants with 11 assists.

After the end of the season, Manchester United are actively fighting for the midfielder. Manchester United head coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer is personally interested in Jadon's services. The player himself also does not mind returning home to a top club. In Manchester, preliminary negotiations have already begun with Borussia, which wants at least 90 million euros for their player.

Kevin de Bruyne, Belgium, Manchester City, 100 million euros

Open source

In the Champions League final, the Belgian midfielder received a blow in the face, which forced him to leave the field with the medics. Doctors diagnosed Kevin with a fractured eye socket and many began to chew that the City footballer would miss the Euro. But de Bruyne did not need an operation and he had already joined his team. True, he will definitely not be able to play in the first matches, and then he will play in a protective mask.

The Belgian midfielder had a good season. He made it to the symbolic teams of the England Championship and the Champions League. In addition, he claims to be the best footballer of the season in England. In Spain, they write that there is interest in Kevin de Bruyne from Real Madrid. But now the “creamy” can not offer the player something that is not in Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling, England, Manchester City, € 90 million

Open source

Raheem Sterling has been in Manchester since 2015. Then the transfer cost the "citizens" 49 million euros. Since then, he has become the best football player in England, won three championships and was one of the most important players in Guardiola. But in the last season, Raheem scored 15 goals. In total, Sterling has already scored 78 goals for the “townspeople”.

Most likely, this summer Rahim will change his club. In Manchester, they may offer a new contract to Streling, but the option with the striker leaving is also possible. For example, City is willing to include a player in a possible Harry Kane deal with Tottenham.

Frankie has already spent two seasons at Barcelona. He managed to gain a foothold in the base of the Catalan club and play along with Messi and Griezmann in one of the best clubs in the world. Frankie scores a little, but he scored his 7 goals and 7 assists in a season. And although it was not possible to achieve success in the Champions League and the championship, “Barcelona” got the Cup, which brightened up the season at least a little.

In the Netherlands national team, Frenkie de Jong is one of the main stars. Much is expected of him. And the young midfielder is still coping with this responsibility.

Joshua Kimmich, Germany, Bayern, € 90 million

Open source

Until recently, the center of the field of Munich “Bavaria” could not be imagined without Thiago Alcantra. But after joining the Jshow Kimmich club, the club stopped worrying about the position of the defensive midfielder. On top of that, Kimmich added on offense with 14 assists in a season.

Joshua was one of the main heroes of his team and deservedly got into all sorts of symbolic teams of the German championship. In addition, the French edition of Onze Mondial ranked Joshua in seventh place in the ranking of the best football players of the season in Europe (first place went to Karim Benzema).

Bruno Fernandes, Portugal, Manchester United, € 90m

Open source

This season, Manchester United has finished second in the Premier League, played in the Europa League final, and have been a fairly prominent club on the European football map. And one of the main characters of the “red devils” this season was Bruno Fernandes. 24 goals and 17 assists is a great indicator for a player who has only been in Manchester for a year.

But Manchester United paid Sporting 55 million euros last winter. Now, this price looks completely unrealistic. And even the 90 million indicated by Transfermarkt looks like a low price for the fifth player in Europe from the same Onze Mondial rating.

Marcus Reshford, England, Manchester United, € 85m

Open source

The second representative of Manchester United and the third player from this city on our list. It turns out that Manchester is now the center of world football. And one of those who dictate the fashion in the "red" club is Marcus Rashford. He scored 21 goals this season, and the club itself has long claimed top spots in all tournaments.

And this despite the fact that Rashford has been playing since 2016, he is still on the list of the best young players in England. That is, we are still waiting for the progress and development of the young Englishman. All the same, they have a cool generation now.
