Cristiano Ronaldo & Romelu Lukaku: Who is Serie A's most valuable player?

Cristiano Ronaldo is not Juventus' MVP either...

Cristiano Ronaldo is coming towards the end of his illustrious career.

The Juventus superstar is still one of the best players in the world and is also in incredible physical shape, but let's not forget that he is now 35-years-old.

Given he's now closer to 40 than he is 30, Ronaldo's value within the professional game is on a continuous decline.

The Portuguese signed for Juventus in a £100m deal two years ago, but he's now worth just over half that fee.

Serie A's latest player market values are now live and Ronaldo has to make to do with a ninth-place finish. Let's find out who takes top spot...

Lukaku with Inter Milan

Lukaku takes top spot and deservedly so. The Belgian has rebuilt his domestic career with Inter and is now rightly revered as one of the best strikers in the world.

Dybala and De Ligt are now Juve's two most valuable players, while summer signing Arthur Melo is just behind Ronaldo in the top 25.

The biggest surprise is that not a single Atalanta player makes the list, even though the Bergamo-based outfit have been one of the shining lights of Italian football over the last year or so.

Surely Duvan Zapata is worthy of a place ahead of someone like Eriksen, right?
