Tottenham are sitting on a potential profit of £316million for Harry Kane and Dele Alli, according to a new study.
The CIES Football Observatory has calculated that Kane, brought through the ranks at Spurs, would be worth more in profit to Spurs than Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
The study worked out the 50 players in the ‘big-five’ leagues – England, Spain, Italy, France and Germany – with the most positive gap between their current transfer value and the fee paid for them by their clubs.
According to the study Kane is worth an estimated £173m to Spurs while Messi, who also cost Barca nothing, would command a fee of £172m.Messi’s value is reduced due to his age with the Argentine superstar turning 31 in June.
Alli cost us £5m from MK Dons in 2015 and has a potential added value of £143m.France striker Antoine Griezmann would be worth a £138m (157.6m euros) profit to Atletico Madrid, although that figure does not take into account his reported 100m Euro buy-out clause.
