The latest list was dominated by Premier League players, with 41 representatives in the top 100.
City’s Ruben Dias (€109.6m) had the highest transfer value for a defender while PSG’s Gianluigi Donnarumma (€73.7m) was tops among goalkeepers. City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, 30, was the oldest player on the list, worth €57.3m.
