The 4-3-3 formation, which has been used by some of the best teams in football history, has its origins in the Dutch Total Football style. Total Football, a philosophy that emphasises fluidity and flexibility among outfield players, became synonymous with the 4-3-3 formation. The 4-3-3 formation, which features a dedicated defensive midfielder and two slightly ahead of him, or two defensively oriented midfielders and an attacking one ahead of them, two wide forwards, and a dedicated striker makes a strong case for being the most destructive formation in football when used properly. 

The advent of the 4-3-3 formation in modern football has dramatically changed the game, as has the function of modern-day wingers. Players who use speed and skills to stretch opposing defences and create space for their teammates are priceless assets to their teams. On that point, here is a list of the most expensive right-wingers in international football right now in terms of value.

5. Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich) - €70 million


Gnabry is a right-winger for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich as well as the German national team. Gnabry was initially rejected by Arsenal and West Brom, but he has since turned his career around at Bayern Munich. The 25-year-old has established himself as a crucial player for the Bavarian giants, having contributed significantly to their treble-winning campaign in the 2019-20 season and finished as the third-highest scorer in the Champions League.

4. Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich) - €70 million

Former Manchester City winger, Leroy Sane joined Bayern ahead of the 2020-21 season. In 2014, he made his professional debut with Schalke 04, and in 2016, he moved to Manchester City for a cost of £37 million. After helping City win the Premier League and the EFL Cup in 2017–18, he was named PFA Young Player of the Year, a feat the team repeated the following season by achieving a domestic triple. He finished the 2020-21 season with 10 goals in as many games and helped the team lift the Bundesliga. 

3. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - €80 million

This man can’t be summed up in a paragraph. The little magician from Argentina is still among the most valuable players in the world despite his age. He is currently valued at €80 million and with the appointment of Joan Laporta at the club, he has a good chance of extending his contract at Barcelona. Last season, he helped the team win the Copa del Rey title.

2. Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) - €100 million

The English star has been linked with Manchester United for the past two years. The 21-year-old is worth €100 million and has the potential to win the Ballon d'Or in the future. Dortmund paid £8 million for him and are now prepared to reap the benefits of their investment in the kid. In just 82 Bundesliga starts for Dortmund so far, he set up 45 goals and scored 38 himself, making it one of the most accomplished individual campaigns in Germany in the past three seasons.

1. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - €110 million

Salah, the Egyptian superstar, has always been a fantastic footballer, but the 28-year-old has taken his game to a new level since moving to Liverpool. After a disastrous debut season in the Premier League with Chelsea, the Egyptian found his form in Italy with AS Roma. In what has been a remarkable second term in England, Salah has won a league trophy, a UCL trophy, a Club World Cup, and a slew of individual awards. With Messi playing a different role in Barcelona, it can easily be said that Salah is the best right-winger in the world at the moment.
