NOW TRY Quiz! Can you name the PFA Premier League Teams of the Year from the last decade?

Once a fresh-faced young boy learning from the likes of Ronaldinho, the padawan became the master of the force. Now, Lionel Messi is 33 years old. It's hard to believe, really.

We've reached the peak of the mountain and now we're heading down the other side - Messi will no doubt retire this decade, along with a galaxy of stars that have come to represent a generation. But just because these players are older, wiser, somewhat slower too, their stock hasn't suffered a steep drop.

If your club were to purchase one of these players this month, they'd set you back rather a lot of money - just as Manchester City found out recently. Such is inflation, they might even cost more money now than they did at their peak - but we doubt it, post-COVID.

With a little help from Transfermarkt, we've totalled up the worth of the over 30s - all you have to do is tell us who they are.
