Many of the world’s most expensive footballers will be in action this Wednesday evening at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, with around 1.2 billion euros worth of talent spread across the two teams.

Both Florentino Perez and Nasser Al-Khelaifi have spent big in order to make their clubs two of the tournament favourites.

Real Madrid, for example, have spent 469 million euros on their 23-man squad.

Real Madrid’s most expensive players

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo 96m euros
  2. Gareth Bale 91m euros
  3. Karim Benzema 35m euros
  4. Mateo Kovacic 31m euros
  5. Luka Modric 30m euros
  6. Isco 30m euros
  7. Toni Kroos 30m euros
  8. Theo Hernandez 28m euros
  9. Sergio Ramos 27m euros
  10. Dani Ceballos 16.5m euros

PSG, meanwhile, have been pumping huge amounts of money into their squad in recent seasons, spending a total of 466m euros on their front three alone.

PSG’s most expensive players

  1. Neymar 222m euros
  2. Kylian Mbappe 180m euros
  3. Edinson Cavani 65.5m euros
  4. Angel di Maria 63m euros
  5. Thiago Silva 42m euros
  6. Javier Pastore 42m euros
  7. Julian Draxler 40m euros
  8. Marquinhos 31.4m euros
  9. Layvin Kurzawa 25m euros
  10. Yuri 16m euros

The current value of the starting XIs

Of course, many of the players mentioned above were purchased several years ago, before the recent inflation of the transfer market.

It’s interesting, then, to note the current estimations of the players’ values, with Real Madrid’s players thought to be worth 853m euros and PSG’s 756m euros.
