Data model slaps €245m price tag on Haaland

Clubs wanting to prise Erling Braut Haaland away from Manchester City must dig extremely deep to secure his services.

The Man City star is currently valued at a whopping €245.1 million, according to a statistical model developed by the CIES Football Observatory.

While the Premier League champions are not planning to sell Haaland, they would make a massive profit if they decided to cash in.

They paid €60m to secure his services from Borussia Dortmund – a figure that puts him ninth on the top ten list of Man City’s most expensive signings of all time.

Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior is second on the list with a valuation of €196.3m, just ahead of Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka on €195.8m.

Based on the data, Real Madrid have bagged a relative bargain after agreeing a €103m fee with Dortmund to sign Jude Bellingham this summer.

Bellingham is fourth on the list with an estimated value of €190.2m, putting him ahead of Madrid’s Rodrygo Goes (€184.5m) in fifth place.

Pedri Gonzalez (€178m), Pablo Gavi (€174.1m), Jamal Musiala (€170.2m), Phil Foden (€166.8m) and Kylian Mbappe (€163.2m) complete the top ten.

Further down the list, Declan Rice’s €67.8m valuation is a timely reminder that clubs interested in signing him must pay over the odds to secure his services.

Arsenal are among the clubs chasing Rice – they are reportedly willing to complete one of the biggest Premier League summer 2023 transfers.

However, it could take more than €100m to sign Rice, which looks excessive given his CIES Football Observatory valuation.
