Football’s most prized possessions.
50. Xavi (Barcelona)
Spanish pass-master would presumably be worth far more but for his age.
49. Pepe (Real Madrid)
Bernabeu defender has been in top form over the past twelve months. Must be one of the scariest centre-backs on planet earth.
48. Dani Alves (Barcelona)
Stylish attacking full-back has served Barcelona well over the past four years.
47. Ezequiel Lavezzi (PSG)
Argentine has taken all that well to life in Paris but has time to make his mark.
46. Javier Mascherano (Barcelona)
Tough tackling former Liverpool man has been a terrific acquisition, able to fill in at centre-back and still a terrier in the midfield.
