Many were surprised when Manchester United decided to sell Romelu Lukaku in 2019, and their loss has been Inter Milan's gain as he played an integral role in them winning the Serie A title after more than a decade by scoring 24 goals in the league.

The 28-year-old is also key to Belgium's Euro 2020 hopes and he has already started the tournament with a bang by netting a brace in their opener against Russia.

2. Kevin De Bruyne - €100m

Kevin De Bruyne is without doubt the best midfielder in the world at present and he has been for sometime now, leading from the front and helping Manchester City win the Premier League title by scoring six goals and registering 12 assists.

The 29-year-old has established himself as the talisman for his country and how he performs on the pitch will decide whether they win the Euro 2020.

3. Thibaut Courtois - €60m

The 2018 World Cup Golden Glove winner and one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Thibaut Courtois has proven time and again that he is a dependable presence in goal.

The 29-year-old has been in good form for both club and country and will play an important role for Belgium considering that they have an aging backline.

4. Youri Tielemans - €55m

The Man of the Match in Leicester City's FA Cup final win, Youri Tielemans has over time established himself into one of the best players in his position. The 24-year-old has already made 40 appearances for his country and is one the first names in team sheet.

5. Eden Hazard - €40m

Eden Hazard's dream move to Real Madrid in 2019 has not gone to plan as he has struggled with form and fitness issues, managing to make only 43 appearances for the Los Blancos in two seasons.

His reputation on the field might have taken a hit, but there is no doubt that he remains one of the most talented players in the world.
