    Liverpool's star-studded squad have been named as the most valuable in Europe with Jurgen Klopp's men worth a whopping £1.27billion.

    But it's a stark contrast for Mikel Arteta's floundering Arsenal side who find themselves down in 15th spot, with the Gunners worth £566m.

    The figures have been calculated by the CIES Football Observatory research team, who take into account the age of the players, form, the length of contract remaining and their international status.

    With the Reds blasting away Manchester City in the fight for the Premier League title this campaign, Liverpool have also edged the Citizens to top spot.

    United then come in sixth with the club worth the same amount as Chelsea, with Paris Saint-Germain seventh with their squad's value estimated at £890m.

    The report adds that a fresh contract for the next season then kicks off on August 1.

    There are growing doubts that the Premier League will be able to be completed by that cut off.

    The official stance is that it will resume from April 4, but even the most optimistic predict that will be moved back by at least a few weeks, while clubs have nine or 10 fixtures remaining.

    In a series of three teleconferences that started at 9am president Aleksander Ceferin and his senior lieutenants tried to make sense of the madness and eventually took the tough but expected decision.

    Uefa's flagship international tournament was due to take place across 12 different cities to mark the 60th anniversary of the competition.
