A run-down of European football’s most valuable players.
The market value of 20 of Europe’s top players, according to research done by the CIES Football Observatory in Switzerland.
20. Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
Technically valued at between £31.6 and £36.7million, Luis Suarez has just had a breakthrough season for Liverpool, lighting up the Premier League with some superb displays and scoring 30 goals in all competitions for the club. Although he is known for being a controversial character, and got himself in trouble again for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic during a match at Anfield, he is still rated as one of the best players in the world. He is arguably reaching his peak now, and this makes him a highly valuable player to the Reds, who could receive a bid of as much as £50million for him from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
