Who Are The Most Valuable and Best Players at Euro 2020
|5 Most Valuable and Best Players at Euro 2020|
UEFA Euro 2020 — Most Valuable Players
From the likes of Real Madrid legends Karim Benzema to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Euro 2020 is littered with incredible names.
#1 Kylian Mbappe | France | €160m - the world's most valuable footballer
In joining Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in 2017, Mbappe became the second-most expensive transfer in history, but he had since gone on to win several trophies with PSG and become a World Cup winner with France.
Mbappe heads into Euro 2020 with Les Bleus not only as the most valuable player in the competition, but in world football. The French superstar has emerged as arguably one of the best players in the world over the last few years and helped France win the 2018 World Cup. He’s scored 16 times overall in 42 games for France.
Mbappe has also been in surreal form for Paris Saint-Germain as well, scoring 42 goals and assisting 11 in 47 games across all competitions. Quite remarkably, since France’s 1-0 loss to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, Mbappe has gone on to score 174 goals and deliver 88 assists in 260 games for club and country. Les Bleus will need Mbappe to be at his very best to help them win Euro 2020.

#2 Harry Kane | England | €120m
Harry Kane, is set to enter Euro 2020 as the second most valuable player in the competition at €120m. It's hardly surprising to see Kane this high on the list, given his incredible credentials and that he has three years left on his current Tottenham Hotspur deal.
Kane became only the second player in Premier League history to win the Golden Boot and Playmaker Award in the same season. He topped the charts with 23 goals and 14 assists in 2020-21 and is possibly one of themost in-form players at Euro 2020.
Harry Kane made his England debut on this day in 2015, scoring just 79 seconds after coming on in a 4-0 win over Lithuania. Kane is now 21 goals off Wayne Rooney’s record tally of 53 for England and will be the possibility of him breaking that record.
#3 Jadon Sancho | England | €100m or €120 million
Premier League and Europa League runners-up Manchester United have begun official talks with Borussia Dortmund over the potential signing of English starlet Jadon Sancho.
The 20-time record English champions made no secret of their desire to sign the winger last summer but were ultimately unwilling to meet the Bundesliga side's €120 million ($146m/£103m) asking price, and Sancho remained in Germany.
According to reports in Germany, official talks between the two clubs have begun once again, with German broadcaster Sport1 reporting that Dortmund are prepared to sell Sancho for €90m ($110m/£77m).

England superstar Jadon Sancho is the youngest player to make this list, as he’s valued at a staggering €100m at the age of 21. Sancho has established himself as one of the Bundesliga’s finest and one of the best English players overall in the last few years. With the quality possessed by the Borussia Dortmund winger, he will surely have his say at Euro 2020.
Although he had a relatively slow start to 2020-21, Sancho had a brilliant second half to the season and ended with 16 goals and 20 assists across all fronts. He also fired BVB to the DFB-Pokal, scoring twice in the final against RB Leipzig.
Jadon Sancho has been involved in 79 league goals before turning 21 today. No English player’s been involved in as many before their 21st birthday within the top 5 Euro leagues since 1992.
#4 Romelu Lukaku | Belgium | €100m
team-mate Romelu Lukaku is their biggest goalscoring threat. The towering striker has arguably enjoyed the best season of his club career, scoring 30 goals and assisting ten in 44 games across all fronts for Internazionale. The 28-year-old fired the Nerazzurri to their first Scudetto in a decade.
Lukaku is the Belgian Red Devils’ all-time top-scorer, having racked up 59 strikes in just 91 games at an average of 0.65 goals per 90. He has at least 27 more goals to his name than Eden Hazard in second place, who scored 32 in his 106 games.
Romelu Lukaku is the first player able to score 20+ goals and deliver 10+ assists in a single Serie A season since Opta started to collect this data (since 2004/05).
After a season where he’s already enjoyed an immense amount of success in Italy, Lukaku will look to fire his homeland to glory at Euro 2020.
#5 Kevin De Bruyne | Belgium | €100m
Belgian maestro Kevin De Bruyne kicks off this list as the fifth most valuable star set to participate at Euro 2020. The Manchester City superstar is arguably the best midfielder in the world and is expected to be Belgium’s biggest creative threat this summer. He has been in top form for the Cityzens, scoring nine goals and assisting 16 in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
There were high hopes from the playmaker ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup but the Belgian’s displays were relatively underwhelming.
De Bruyne will look to make amends and help his side do well at Euro 2020 as one of their most experienced players. The midfielder has played 80 times for the Belgian Red Devils, scoring 21 goals.
EURO 2020 - BEST PLAYERS
We predict some best players at Euro 2020, you can choose your own best players.
Kylian Mbappe (France, €12m)
Already a World Cup winner with France, Kylian Mbappe will be key to Les Bleus ' assault for the European crown. He's the most expensive player in Euro 2020 fantasy football alongside Ronaldo, but his goalscoring touch suggests he is probably worth the cost.
Harry Kane (England, €11.5m)
England's main goal threat, Harry Kane costs slightly less than Ronaldo and Mbappe. The Tottenham striker comes into Euro 2020 on the back of a 33-goal season at club level and he is already one of the Three Lions' top goalscorers of all time. Kane is a master penalty taker too, so that makes him all the more appealing.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, €12m)
This could potentially be Cristiano Ronaldo's last major tournament and the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will be eager to make an impact in the competition as Portugal attempt to retain their title. Ahead of Euro 2020, Ronaldo had scored a total of 103 goals in 173 games for his country and the fact he takes free kicks as well as penalties increases his chances of scoring.
Robert Lewandowski (Poland, €11.5m)
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski won the European Golden Shoe in 2020-21 with a record 41 goals in 29 appearances and he'll be eager to take that form into the European Championship. 'Lewy' will get goals and Poland will fancy their chances of qualifying from a group that also contains Spain, Slovakia and Sweden.
Romelu Lukaku (Belgium, €11m)
Arriving at Euro 2020 a Serie A champion, Romelu Lukaku is playing the best football of his career and the fact that he remains Belgium's chief goal-getter is reason enough to get him into your fantasy football team.
Bruno Fernandes (Portugal, €10.5m)
With 28 goals from midfield for Manchester United in 2020-21, Bruno Fernandes is considered one of the best picks for Euro 2020 fantasy football. A note of caution should be sounded, though, as he is not the main star for Portugal and ahead of the tournament he had just two goals in 27 caps. Nevertheless, Fernandes' quality cannot be denied.
Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium, €10.5m)
There is a chance that Kevin De Bruyne could miss Belgium's Euro 2020 opener against Russia after sustaining a face injury in the Champions League final, but if he is fit the Manchester City star will be a key player for the Red Devils.

Ferran Torres (Spain, €8m)
Manchester City youngster Ferran Torres is one of the leading lights in Luis Enrique's Spain team and has hit the ground running on the senior international stage. He scored double figures for Pep Guardiola's side in his first season at the club and is brimming with confidence.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (England, €6.5m)
There was actually some concern about whether Gareth Southgate would select Trent Alexander-Arnold for Euro 2020 thanks to a dip in form, but the Liverpool full-back was impressive once more at the tail-end of the season. Alexander-Arnold is a flying wing-back who chips in with assists and scores the occasional goal. He also boasts a decent free kick in his locker and sometimes takes corner kicks.
Thibaut Courtois (Belgium, €6m)
Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois is the most expensive goalkeeper in the Euro 2020 fantasy football game (along with France's Hugo Lloris and Germany's Manuel Neuer). Roberto Martinez's side not only boast a fearsome attack, but their defence is a tough one to crack, as evidenced by the fact they only conceded three goals in qualifying.
