Premier League update

    Transfermarkt.co.uk has provided around 40 per cent of all Premier League players with a new market value after the end of the transfer period. After the expenditure record, the richest league in the world has now also broken the record in terms of league value: the squads of the 20 first division clubs are now worth 9.86 billion euros and thus 130 million euros more than before the outbreak of the corona pandemic.

    New signings such as Manchester United’s Antony, Chelsea’s Wesley Fofana and Newcastle’s Alexander Isak, who were able to more than compensate for the high devaluations of Cristiano Ronaldo or Leicester’s Caglar Söyüncü, have contributed to this. In the course of the update, the Premier League recorded an increase of around 600 million euros in terms of market value.

    New market value: Antony now on par with Neymar and Sancho

    €40m of that goes to the most expensive summer transfer, Antony, who came from Ajax Amsterdam for €95m and has now been upgraded to €75m. Daniel Busch, Area Manager Transfermarkt UK, says:

    “The Brazilian gets the biggest plus and is now on par with teammate Jadon Sancho and compatriot Neymar. Since he has not yet impressed in a top league for long periods of time and Ajax were able to get the absolute maximum out of the sale of ten Hag’s dream player, Antony’s market value will not rise to the full fee – we await his further development.”

    New market value: €75 million


    The latter more or less applies to Man United’s summer signings Lisandro Martínez (+€18m to €50m) and Casemiro (+€10m to €50m), who were bought out of their contracts for €57m and €71m respectively. The “Red Devils” wanted these players and put what was needed on the table – but that doesn’t mean that the market value is increasing at the same pace.

    Similarly, global spending champions Chelsea and Wesley Fofana (+€20m to €65m) and Marc Cucurella (+€27m to €55m) made a total of €146m for Leicester and Brighton. “After Chelsea made Fofana the fourth most expensive central defender in history, he also rises to the top segment with his new market value. For the time being, the young Frenchman is only scratching the top among the most valuable defenders and now has to justify the high price in order to take the next step – hopefully he will be spared major injuries in the process,” said Busch.

    Minus for Cristiano Ronaldo: “No longer interesting for top clubs”

    While high transfers lead to revaluations in some cases, lack of interest and dissatisfied coaches can cause the market value to plummet. For example, with Ronaldo, who at the age of 37 is devalued from 30 million to 20 million euros. “The developments in the summer have shown that Ronaldo is no longer interesting for top clubs, which is not least due to his enormous salary. At United he missed a large part of the preparation and has only played a joker role under coach ten Hag,” explains Busch.

    The former world footballer was regularly on the bench alongside Harry Maguire (-8 to €30m) and Luke Shaw (-8 to €30m), who are also among the big losers of the update.

    The biggest minus in the Premier League goes to Caglar Söyüncü (26), who is outside Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers and is devalued from €40m to €28m. “In the last league game, the Turkish international was not even in the squad despite Fofana’s departure. Although his contract expires at the end of the season, there was hardly any interest from top clubs in the summer, so only a return to Turkey was a loose topic,” says Busch. There is also a whopping minus for Söyüncü’s teammates Wilfred Ndidi (-10 to €50m) and Youri Tielemans (-10 to €45m), which ensure that the “Foxes” with a minus of 24.2m .Euro received the largest devaluation in the league.

    Southampton FC have secured the biggest plus, with their transfers focusing on young players who play a large part in the fact that the “Saints” have made the biggest jump in squad value with an increase of €73.2m to €316m make. Southampton signed Gavin Bazunu (+€10m to €15m), Juan Larios (starting value €5m) and Roméo Lavia (+€23m to €25m) for €33.3m from the Manchester City offspring – also the former Bochumer Armel Bella-Kotchap (+6 to 16 million €) is one of the winners.

    This is how the Transfermarkt market values ​​work

    The Transfermarkt market values ​​are created taking into account various pricing models and a strong involvement of the Transfermarkt community, which deals with the values ​​in detailed discussions. The transfer market market values ​​are not to be equated with the transfer fees actually paid.

    The goal is not to predict a price, but an expected value. When determining the market value, both individual transfer modalities and situational framework conditions are relevant to a certain extent. Examples of this are listed here. Transfermarkt does not use an algorithm (for detailed market value definition).
