Barcelona and PSG’s mouthwatering £536m combined XI includes Messi, Mbappe and Griezmann.. 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…
