1. Neymar. Brazil.
Valued at €180million

Neymar played a lot in the street, on the beach, and futsal was always a part his life since he was a boy. "I think futsal is essential for any player, because it makes you think very quickly, with short swerves and quick passing and shooting," he says. It was the pitch he began to compete and train on. “You always have to improve. From the time I was little, my father told me to finish a training session exhausted and that is what I do to this day”, he said in an interview to Acclaim online. “I always look for my father’s advice because he’s a wise person and someone who loves me 100 percent. As for the rest, the final decision isn't mine, but God’s.”
