Lionel Messi's transfer market value has fallen below 100 million euros for the first time in a decade on Transfermarkt.
After the website's latest study, his price has fallen by 20m euros to 80m euros.
At 33 years of age, Messi is still fourth on the list of LaLiga Santander players and is only behind Joao Felix, Jan Oblak and Ansu Fati.
Tobias Blaseio, the manager of Transfermarkt for Spain, has offered an explanation as to why Messi's value has fallen.
"Messi is slowly reaching the final years of his career and Barcelona are going through an institutional crisis," he said.
"After almost 10 years of having a value above 100m euros, now he has suffered this 20m euro fall."
The player with the top value for all of world football right now is Kylian Mbappe, with 180m euros.
