Barcelona and PSG's mouthwatering combined XI with Messi, Mbappe and Griezmann worth £536m.. even without injured Neymar

BARCELONA host Paris Saint-Germain in a tasty-looking Champions League clash on Tuesday night – with their combined XI worth a staggering £536million.

The two sides famously met in the last-16 stage in the 2016-17 tournament, with the Spaniards winning a thrilling tie 6-5.

Having lost the first-leg at the Parc des Princes 4-0, Barcelona needed a miracle to progress.

And they got just that as they stormed to a last-gasp 6-5 win, scoring THREE times from the 88th-minute onwards to book their spot in the last-eight.

Fans can only dream of another tie that exciting, but with some huge names on show, there's always the chance for fireworks.

We take a look at a combined XI of Barcelona and PSG stars, worth over half a billion pounds.

And that figure would be higher if not for injuries to Neymar, who's valued at £115m by Transfermarkt, and Ansu Fati (£72m).

But who makes the cut in terms of pure value? Check out the team below…

GK – Marc-Andre ter Stegen

Team: Barcelona

Value: £67.5m

EASILY the winner for the starting goalkeeper's spot, Ter Stegen is worth £58.5m MORE than PSG's No1, ex-Real Madrid stopper Keylor Navas.

CB – Presnel Kimpembe

Team: PSG

Value: £36m

ONE of two PSG stars in a back-three, Kimpembe is valued at £36m, keeping team-mate Thilo Kehrer (£22.5m) out of the XI.

CB – Marquinhos

Team: PSG

Value: £63m

KIMPEMBE is joined by veteran defender Marquinhos – the most-valuable of all defenders at both clubs at a sky-high £63m.

CB – Clement Lenglet

Team: Barcelona

Value: £36m

LENGLET is the joint-second-most-valuable defender on the list, tied with Kimpembe – keeping the likes of Gerard Pique (£10.8m) and Samuel Umtiti (£9m) out of the team.


RM – Lionel Messi

Team: Barcelona

Value: £72m

SET to leave Barcelona a free this summer, Messi is only valued as 'low' as £72m due to his contract having just over four months left to run.

The Manchester City target is still the second-most-valuable player in the XI, though.

CM – Marco Verratti

Team: PSG

Value: £54m

ONE of only two midfielders in both squads combined to be valued at over £50m, Verratti beats team-mates such as Danilo Pereira (£21.6m) and Idrissa Gueye (£16.2m) to the XI.

CM – Frenkie De Jong

Team: Barcelona

Value: £58.5m

DUTCH star De Jong is the other £50m+-rated star, edging Pedri (£45m) and Miralem Pjanic (£36m) into the team.

LM – Ousmane Dembele

Team: Barcelona

Value: £45m

ONLY making the team due to injuries to Neymar and Ansu Fati, Dembele is still valued at an impressive £45m, comfortably beating team-mate Trincao (£22.5m) to the line-up.

CAM – Antoine Griezmann

Team: Barcelona

Value: £54m

DESPITE missing some huge names through injury, including Neymar, Fati and Philippe Coutinho, this XI still boasts a fearsome front-three.

Griezmann fits in nicely between an all-PSG front-two, valued at £54m.

ST – Kylian Mbappe

Team: PSG

Value: £162m

EASILY the most-valuable player in the squad, the Real Madrid target clocks in at a sensational £162m valuation.
