Study Names Raheem Sterling The Most Valuable Young Player In Europe

According to a study by former Barcelona Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Esteve Cazada, Raheem Sterling is the most valuable young player in Europe.

The study, conducted by Cazada's company, Soccerex, valued Sterling at 35 million pounds. Liverpool rejected a bid at that number from Manchester City recently.

PSG defender Marquinhos was second on the list, followed by Memphis Depay of Manchester United, Domenico Berardi of Sassuolo and Jose Maria Jimenez of Atletico Madrid.

The study examined the financial value of players who were 20 years old before January 1, 2015.

Nine Premier League players were featured in the top 20, including Chelsea's Kurt Zouma, Manchester United's Luke Shaw and Arsenal's Calum Chambers.

Liverpool had three players in the top 20: Sterling, German midfielder Emre Can and Belgian forward Divock Origi.
