Kylian Mbappe has been the most valuable player in the world since 2018. He was worth €200 million in 2018, 2019, and 2020. His value decreased by €40 million in 2021.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both were one of the most valuable players in their prime. At that time, €120 million were considered to a huge amount even for the rich clubs like Manchester City and PSG.
And Neymar is still the most valuable player to have ever signed by a club. He was signed for €200 million by PSG in 2017-18 season after Barcelona let him go for this huge amount.
A few days ago, Neymar told that he would love to play in Major League Soccer. And his reason was interesting to listen.
“Their season is shorter so I would get three months vacation. I would play many more years.” Neymar said in an interview.
The Brazilian is undoubtedly one of the best players of this generation. But he hasn’t been the same since his PSG debut and his injuries were the major cause for his bad form.
