Football agent identified as Yvan Le Mee bragged that French International player Kylian Mbappe is the most expensive footballer in the world. The football agent stated that the French young footballer playing professionally for Paris Saint-Germain PSG should worth a whopping sum of £300 million.
This is coming after a report circulated the media that Brazilian talisman Neymar Jr is worth a whopping sum of £222 million which made people believe the Brazilian man should be the most expensive footballer in the world. However, contrary to this projection, Le Mee believed that Kylian Mbappe should be more expensive than Neymar Jr.
Le Mee’s argument was that if Neymar should worth £222 million as a buy out fee, then Kylian Mbappe should be worth more because the French man is still very young and disciplined than the Brazilian star player. He stated that the 2018 World Cup winner is worth £300 million.
Kylian Mbappe who joined the French top club in 2018 after he completed his loan spell with the club, at that time, reports revealed that PSG paid about £180 million to seal the deal with Monaco. This literally projects the French youngster to become the most valuable young player in the world.
It seems the coronavirus lockdown has opened another round of argument in the world of football that will last for a while. Before now, the debate has always been about who the best is between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but now the argument is about who is more expensive.
Although, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the dominating actors in modern football, however, they are not as expensive as some players. Brazilian star player, Neymar Jr broke the world’s transfer record in 2017 after Paris Saint-Germain signed him for a record fee of about £200 million. Neymar became the world’s most expensive player with that transfer.
With Real Madrid and Barcelona showing their interest in the 28-year-old Brazilian player, it is worthy to note that his transfer fee has increased. Neymar is now worth about £222 million, apparently, any team that wants to get his signature will make provision of that amount. Following his new transfer fee, football analysts have hailed the Brazilian star for becoming the new world’s most expensive footballer.
However, some other people believe that Neymar Jr is just another overrated football player. One of such persons who believe there are other players better and worth more than the Brazilian star is football agent Yvan Le Mee. It is expected that Mbappe would worth more than Neymar in the seeable future, no one knew it would be this quick.
Reasonably, the upward review in Kylian Mbappe’s worth can not be disjointed from the fact that Real Madrid has shown interest in the youngster.
It could be recalled that there was a rumored report which stated that Paris Saint-Germain is not willing to allow Kylian Mbappe to exit the club despite speculation that Real Madrid has shown interest in the French player.
