Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been ranked as the most valuable footballer in Europe’s major leagues by research group CIES Football Observatory.

The biannual list of the ‘big-five’ league players with the greatest transfer values factors in age and contract length.

Rashford’s estimated value is £150.1m given the 23-year-old England international has more than two years remaining on his current contract, plus the option of a further year.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold (£137.4m) is third on the list behind Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland (£137.8m), while Rashford’s team-mate Bruno Fernandes is fourth (£136.9m).

Kylian Mbappe (£135.4m) had previously headed the list, but with 18 months left on his current deal the Paris Saint-Germain striker’s estimated value has seen him drop to fifth.

England trio Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka have all been deemed to have values of more than £100m, with Mason Mount, Harry Kane and Mason Greenwood all above the £90m-mark.

There is no place in the top 100 for Cristiano Ronaldo (£42.6m), the 35-year-old Juventus forward is 131st due to his expiring contract in June 2022, while 33-year-old Lionel Messi (£48.9m) is 97th given his deal at Barcelona runs out this summer.
