The PSG ace is considered to be the most lucrative young asset in European football, with star turns from Manchester City and United making the top 10

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe tops the list of the most valuable U21 players in world football, according to CIES Football Observatory.

Their latest study shows that the 18-year-old France international has seen his stock continue to rise over the last three months, taking his price tag to €182.8 million.

Mbappe has netted eight times in 17 appearances for PSG since joining from Monaco over the summer on an initial loan which will be turned into a €180m deal in 2018.

Sitting just behind the French starlet on the U21 chart is Tottenham’s Dele Alli, with the England international midfielder now considered to be worth €180.2m.

His Premier League rival, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, is third at €124.5m, while Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele is still valued at €120.4m despite seeing his rating drop on the back of an injury-hit start to his time at Camp Nou.

Manchester United’s 20-year-old frontman Marcus Rashford completes the top five, with it expected that he would demand a €116.7m fee were he to leave Old Trafford.
