With a value estimated at €145 million, Kevin De Bruyne is the most expensive player in City's team, but in Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, Pep Guardiola has three others at his disposal rated to be worth more than €100m. Overall, the current league leaders' squad is worth €1.196bn

The Premier League's most valuable player does not play in light blue, however. Yet again on fire for Tottenham with 13 goals in 14 games to add to four in his last four England appearances, Harry Kane is valued at €186m by CIES, though it falls short of the reported €225m Spurs are said to be demanding from Real Madrid.

With the star forward boosting them, Spurs' team is tallied up with a worth of €1.173bn, just €23m less than City, and €43m more valuable than Barcelona (€1.130bn). 

Surprisingly, Lionel Messi is not Barca's most expensive star. Despite his struggles to find the net this term, it is Luis Suarez who tops the list at €134m.
