How much would you pay for Dele Alli to be leading the line for your club this season?
Well, according to figures compiled for a new study by the CIEF Football Observatory – a sporting think tank which totted up market values of top players across Europe’sleagues – the Tottenham’s striker is valued at an astonishing £34.6m
Harry Kane, the England youngster makes £91.3m and in the top five with the near-unbelievable market (narrowly ousting Raheem Sterling, who sits one place behind on £89.8m), while even Kane’s fellow teammates Dele Alli and Eric Dier are priced at £34.6m and £34.2m respectively.
Beating them all, not too surprisingly, is 28-year-old– a man who would set potential suitors back £250.7m if Barcelona were ever to part with the Argentine. Meanwhile, 30-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo, the same age as Rooney, lags behind in fourth place on £114m.
Further proof that money in football is just ludicrous!
