In CIES' latest report, Jadon Sancho sits at the top of the U20 ranking, with an estimated value of €150.3 million (R2.44 billion).

As a consequence, the BVB winger has overtaken Ronaldo, whose current value is estimated to be between €120 million (R1.95 billion) and €150 million (R2.43 billion) by CIES.

Sancho's value is more than double that of second-placed Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi with €70.1 million (R1.13 billion). AS Roma's Nicolo Zaniolo, who is valued at €67.4 million (R1.09 billion), completes the podium, while Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz, with a value of €64.3 million (R1.04), is hot on his heels.
