The CIES Football Obervatory

The CIES have carried out a study of the market values of the best players born in and after 2000 across Europe’s five major leagues.

The market values have been determined by an eight-part metric which considers, among other things, the economic and sporting level of the club, the context of the transfer window, current market values and, of course, the quality of the player themselves.
