#3 Joshua Kimmich (£67.50 million)

Another of the new-age Bayern stars, Joshua Kimmich is possibly the most versatile player on this list of Bundesliga stars, capable of effortless slotting in as a fullback when required while being a master defensive midfielder. Kimmich played at right-back during Bayern's Champions League-winning run with Benjamin Pavard out with an injury.

Kimmich is both a solid defensive presence and a constant attacking threat for both Bayern and Die Mannschaft, having been with the former since the 2015-16 season. At 25, Kimmich is entering the best phase of his career and is valued at £67.50 million.


#2 Leroy Sane (£72 million)

It is no surprise that Bayern Munich players dominate these standings. However, the next name on this list, Leroy Sane, only joined the club this year and has just made a comeback from a serious ACL injury.

Sane is still only 24, but he seems to have been around for ages. That is because of his great exploits as part of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City team, where he fit perfectly into his aesthetic, attacking style with his skill-set, as he marauded and cut in from the wing to devastate Premier League oppositions.

Sane won the Premier League twice while at City and everything else the English game had to offer. He might have joined Bayern earlier and become a Champions League winner, had an injury not ruled him out last season. Now, returning to the game, Sane is one of the most highly valued players in the Bundesliga, valued at £72 million.

#1 Jadon Sancho (£105.30 million)

Will he, or won't he? The Jadon Sancho to Manchester United rumour has been around for too long now and the latest reports suggest United will launch another round of negotiations in hopes of luring their long-term target to Old Trafford. Sancho, the only player valued over £100 million in the Bundesliga, is by far the league's hottest prospect.

The 20-year-old made a daring switch to the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City to get first-team football and the rest, as they say, is history. The England international has set the Bundesliga on fire ever since his arrival in Germany, having scored 30 goals and assisted 38 times in the league.

He has been a livewire on the wings for a team that finished second behind Bayern in the Bundesliga last season and is yet to grow to his full potential despite being one of the best players in the country.

Defences around the world will be scared of the Camberwell-born youth wherever he plays next. Sancho is currently valued at £105.30 million.

Note: Kai Havertz, at £72.90 million, would have been second on this list but has not been included as he has all but completed a move to Chelsea
