Kylian Mbappe remains in a class of his own when it comes to young players around the world.

For a second straight year, Mbappe tops Soccerex's 20 Under-21 Report, a list of most valuable young players in the world, which is constructed in conjunction with Prime Time Sport. The report uses players' age, position, current club, contract length, market value perception, international caps, minutes played, goals, injuries and technical quality to make its valuation. All players born after January 1, 1998, were eligible.

Mbappe's place atop the ranking is no surprise. He helped France win the World Cup last summer and remains a centerpiece for his club, PSG, and country, despite being 20–and not turning 21 until December. He's valued at €261.6 million (roughly $294 million), by far and away the most in this report. Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, 19, stands to supplant Mbappe when he ages out. The England international comes in a distant second at €120.3 million ($135 million), the only other player to break the $100 million barrier.

American Christian Pulisic remains in the top 10, though he dropped a spot from his eighth-placed ranking a year ago. The new Chelsea signing is said to be worth €57.2 million ($64.3 million), which is lower than the €64 million ($73 million) Chelsea spent to sign him from Dortmund.

Here's the full listing of the top 20, along with their valuations and previous valuations and rankings, if applicable.
