Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd stars in phenomenal £349m starting XI all snubbed by England

Several high profile Premier League players are nowhere to be seen as Gareth Southgate confirmed his initial squad for Euro 2024 today.

England manager Gareth Southgate ruffled feathers on Tuesday when announcing his initial squad for this summer's Euro 2024 competition. Chelsea, Manchester United and Newcastle United stars are all left out of a new-look side heading into preparations for the tournament.

Some of those snubs are less surprising than others given injuries and form this season but, 12 months ago, many of the Premier League first-team stars would have been blocking out the weeks in their calendar to prepare for the international competition.

LondonWorld looks at just 11 of the players absent from the England squad to make up a pretty phenomenal starting XI that, according to Transfermarkt, has an eye-watering worth of £349 million.
