The report is based on an algorithm of almost 2,000 transfer fees with variables shaped on the performances of the player, performances of the club, international status, length of contract, age and position.

Cristiano Ronaldo, at 32 years old is the oldest player to feature, with Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, 18, the youngest.
