Leading football research group CIES Observatory have included 12 Premier League stars in their top 20 most valuable players in world football.

Specialising in analysing financial football data, the group have become a leading beacon in statistical analysis.

In their most recent report, they released the findings of their exclusive algorithm to find out who is the most valuable player on the planet.

Taking into account a player's age and the length of their current contract, they work out just how much they would be worth in today's current financial climate.

While Barcelona star Lionel Messi makes the top 20, there is no room for his Real Madrid rival and current Ballon d'Or holder Cristiano Ronaldo.
