5. Tottenham Hotspur [710.35 mil. €]
Even with no major investment in transfers prior to purchasing Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs still come only fifth in market value. The large market value for Harry Kane carries Spurs almost single-handedly (€120m). Heung-min Son (€64m) and Dele Ali (€64m) account for another €128m.
4. Manchester United [763.68 mil. €]
Manchester United were the league’s biggest spenders last summer, sanctioning purchases worth a combined £148m. Yet despite being one of the division’s top two cash-splashers in recent years, the Red Devils only rank fourth in squad value.
With Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford each being valued at €80m. Next up is Bruno Fernandes, with a value of €70m. Next up is Martial and Maguire. Surprisingly, youngster Mason Greenwood(€45m) is valued higher than David De Gea(€40m).
3. Chelsea FC [810.95 mil. €]
Chelsea lost Eden Hazard and were unable to sign anyone last summer (although they were permitted to buy former loanee Mateo Kovacic on a permanent basis). But with the addition of Timo Werner to their squad, their squad value is among the top three again.
N’Golo Kante is worth more than any of his team-mates according to Transfermarkt’s calculations, with the Frenchman valued at €80m. Next up is Werner, followed by Pulisic.
2. Liverpool [1.02 bil. €]
The current Premier League champions, Liverpool, kept their powder dry in the last summer transfer market, opting against making any major additions to a squad that won the Champions League and finished second in the Premier League that season.
Despite the lack of new faces, the Reds’ ranks still contain plenty of valuable players. Smart player investments have seen Liverpool’s valuation rise because of players like Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah along with their two-star fullbacks.
1. Manchester City [1.07 bil. €]
It’s no secret that Manchester City have spent bucketloads of cash in recent years, but it’s still extraordinary that the Premier League champions’ squad is considered to be worth more than €1bn, with an average of £45.58m per player.
Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne both break the €100m barrier, while Bernardo Silva comes close at €80m. City have no fewer than 11 players who are valued at €50m or above – which is a big part of the reason they are one of the best clubs in the world.
