Top 15 World Footballers by Market Value

Top 15 Footballers by Market Value

Rooney-Aguero-Falcao-Transfer-ValueAs the January transfer window approaches, AS look at who is worth the most in the transfer market and discover that there are 15 players in the world that are valued at more than €40m.

The Madrid-based paper have highlighted the fact that 9 of the top 15 play in the Spanish La Liga. Just three players from the Premiership make the top 15: Rooney in 4th position is valued at €60.2m; Aguero is 7th (€53.7); and Hazard is 11th (€43.7).

Valued at €140m Lionel Messi tops the list compiled by Brazilian consultants, Pluriconsultoria , and the rest of the top 15 is as follows:

Top 15 World Footballers by Market Value

Messi – €140m
Ronaldo – €96.3m
Iniesta – €68.4m
Rooney – €60.2m
Falcao – €56.1m
Neymar – €55m
Aguero – €53.7m
Fabregas – €51m
Silva – €51m
Ozil – €44m
Hazard – €43.7m
Di Maria – €43.6m
Benzema – €42.5m
Thiago Silva – €40.5m
Buquets – €40m

So that’s four from Barcelona, 4 from Real Madrid, 1 from Atletico Madrid and one each from Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Pluriconsultoria analyse 16 factors to come to their conclusions including age, technical quality, finishing ability (passes as well as shots), force, position, level of championship, titles and international appearances. All sounds a bit championship manager really. Of the above you’d thik only Falcao and possibly Neymar would move in January, and if they do I wonder how close it would be to the value given above. Sadly for Spurs fans Gareth Bale doesn’t make the top 15 so according to this publication could be off for less than €40m. Doubtful though isn’t it.
