Despite his age, Cristiano Ronaldo until recently was the most prized player in Italian football and once even in the entire world. However, the Portuguese is now no longer atop of the most valuable Serie A players ranking, and not even among the top three either. Sadly, the superstar doesn’t make the top 20 for the most valuable players in the world.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner remains one of the best players in the world but his value has declined over the past few years. Ronaldo used to be the most valuable player in Italian football until recently, but the latest valuations have not been kind to the aging Juventus hitman.
According to Sempreinter, Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku tops the most valuable Serie A players ranking. Valued at around €104.6, the Belgian ranks 13th in the list of the most valuable players in the world.
Ronaldo’s Juventus teammate Matthijs de Ligt is the second most valuable player in the Italian top-flight at €88.5 million followed by Inter pair Lautaro Martinez [€83.9m] and Achraf Hakimi [€70.2m] and Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
While Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Nicolo Barella, and Dejan Kulusevski complete the top 10 most valuable Serie A players ranking.
Elsewhere, Kylian Mbappe [€185m], unsurprisingly tops the list of the most valuable players in the world at the moment followed by Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling [both valued at €125m].
Moreover, Ronaldo’s place in the Serie A most valuable players ranking is not that bad for a player of his age!
