Kylian Mbappe of PSG tops the list of 2023 most valuable strikers in the world while Erling Haaland is in second place.
Erling has been on fire in recent months and breaking records as he goes but that does not equate to value generally.
Whilst Erling Haaland needs a creative midfielder to function properly in his capacity, Mbappe can do damage all alone.
This will definitely be considered when you have both of them on the table and asked to make a choice for either of them.
Just on Saturday, Haaland equaled the Premier League record of 32 goals in a 38-game season as Manchester City beat Leicester City.
Haaland scored twice after John Stone opened the scoring for the Citizens and within 25 minutes, the game was looking finished.
Haaland set a new record for goals scored by a Premier League player in all competitions when he scored his 45th of the season as Man City beat Bayern Munich 3-0 in the Champions League.
Kylian Mbappe on the other hand became PSG’s all-time leading goalscorer as they beat 10-man Lens to move five points clear at the top of the table.
Mbappe netted his 139th goal in his 169th appearance for PSG surpassing Edison Cavani’s record.
