THE world’s most expensive XI is worth an eye-watering £1.5BILLION, a study of transfer values can reveal.

Incredibly, there are no fewer than SEVEN Premier League stars in the priciest line-up in the world, including Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Raheem Sterling.

There would be even more if not for being limited by competition for places in the line-up, including Sadio Mane, Harry Kane and Roberto Firmino.

The trio, along with world stars Antoine Griezmann, Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba all sit in the top 20.

However, they miss out owing to having more expensive stars playing in their position, according to data from CIES Football Observatory.

Their research takes into consideration such factors as age, form, contract length and international appearances.

In goal, Liverpool star Alisson takes home the prize of most expensive stopper on the planet, valued at £96million – in what would easily be the record fee for a No1.

Two more Reds stars feature in the three-man defence, with Alexander-Arnold (£116m) and Virgil van Dijk (£100m) making the cut.

Manchester City centre-back Ayermic Laporte completes the back-three, valued at £94m.

Laporte’s club-mates Sterling (£185m) and Bernardo Silva (£122m) are just two of the incredibly attacking midfield quartet.

They’re joined by England’s Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho (£142m) and Barcelona flop Philippe Coutinho (£115m).

Kylian Mbappe is the most expensive player in the world according to CIES’ numbers – at a staggering, would-be world-record £224m.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar is joined by Salah (£195m) and Messi (£149m) in a devastatingly talented forward trio.
