With a £27 million release clause, it is likely he will be named in Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Ronaldo was deemed to be worth €80.4m by the study and is all the way down in 49th, sandwiched between Anthony Martial (48th) and Fabinho (50th).
According to the findings, Kane is worth a staggering €194.7million, placing him behind only Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar and Barcelona star Lionel Messi. Paulo Dybala is top of the Serie A contingent at €174.6m, with Robert Lewandowski setting the benchmark for the Bundesliga at €107m.
So there is very little time - just over a month - for Real to get themselves back on track, and considering their consistently poor play for more than four months, at the moment that's looking pretty unlikely. But the Wales international now does not even make the top 100 in the 2018 CIES list.
The other forwards in the squad are young and unproven Borja Mayoral, who looks a decent prospect but certainly not good enough to lead the line for one of the strongest teams in the world, along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
Among those to just miss out on the top 30 are Davinson Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Marcos Alonso, Granit Xhaka, Sadio Mane and Shkodran Mustafi.
Premier League superstars feature heavily on the list, with twelve of the top 20 currently plying their trade on English shores.

Although Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has failed to rule out a move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans, he has told Sky Sports that if Manchester City join the race then the Gunners will come out "second best".

Benzema may yet return from injury to score a hat-trick against PSG to spark a return to form and another Champions League title - in football, you never know.
