Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane, Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo – these four big stars alone changed clubs for over €100 million this summer. It is currently all but impossible that these huge transfers will multiply in the years to come.
Reason enough to take a look at the big stars who have seen their market value explode since the start of this year, according to ‘(Site notre équipe d’expert)’. One or two of these top 10 could soon find themselves in the register of 100 million transfers.
6. Rasmus Højlund (Manchester United, MW development +€30 million)
It should no longer be surprising since Erling Haaland that the market value of a young Scandinavian who bombs out of nowhere in a higher league has exploded. Thanks to his goals at Atalanta, the Dane was able to increase his market value to 45 million euros before the Red Devils landed the contract for a fee of 75 million euros.
6. António Silva (Benfica Lisbon, MW development +30 million euros)
Joao Felix has already impressively shown in 2019 that Benfica can become one of the most valuable players in Europe in a very short time. António Silva, 19, too. Thanks to his good performances in Roger Schmidt’s central defense, the Portuguese’s market value has increased from 15 to 45 million euros since the start of the year.
6. Martin Ødegaard (Arsenal FC, MW development +€30 million)
After numerous stops in Europe, Martin Ødegaard really found himself last season at the latest. And although it ultimately wasn’t enough to win the Premier League title, the Norwegian’s exploits were also reflected in his market value, which rose from 60 to 90 million euros.
6. Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid, MW development +30 million euros)
Vinicius Junior is slowly moving into areas where, if Real ever wanted to sell him, he could become one of the most expensive players of all time. Since the start of this year alone, the 23-year-old has further increased his market value from 120 to 150 million euros.
5. Manuel Ugarte (PSG, MW development +32 million euros)
Around two and a half years after Manuel Ugarte arrived in Portugal from Uruguay, the midfielder is part of PSG’s starting XI and in this top 10. The playful evolution of the 22-year-old, as well as the evolution of the market value from 18 to 50 million euros speaks for itself.
4. Alejandro Balde (FC Barcelona, MW development +35 million euros)
Although many were probably waiting here for Barça’s jewel, Lamine Yamal, another young Catalan appears in this ranking. And that’s probably not entirely wrong. After the young left-back moved to the pros last year, Balde established himself more and more in the starting XI – it is now difficult to imagine life without him. The jump from 15 to 50 million in market value is therefore hardly surprising.
4. Eduardo Camavinga (Real Madrid, MW development +35 million euros)
The potential that Real Madrid saw in him to transfer more than 30 million euros to Rennes in 2021 increases with each match. The young Frenchman has been on the pitch in every game this season and has shone both in midfield and at left-back. The market value of modern (Site notre bureau spécialisé) is rapidly increasing from 50 to 85 million euros.
3. Moisés Caicedo (Chelsea FC, MW development +37 million euros)
Hand on heart, who knew Moisés Caicedo before joining the Premier League? Apart from a few FM nerds and (Site notre bureau spécialisé) omniscients, probably no one. And yet, in a season and a half, the Ecuadorian has become so popular that Chelsea FC paid more than 100 million euros for him. Result: Caicedo’s market value increased from 38 to 75 million euros.
2. Randal Kolo Muani (PSG, MW development +43 million euros)
In Kolo Muani, the so-called “small group season” was on the agenda last season. The Frenchman collected 40 points in 46 games for SGE, not to mention his performance for France at the World Cup. PSG paid around €95 million on deadline day for the striker, who increased his market value from €37 million to €80 million this year.
1. Victor Osimhen (SSC Napoli, MW development +50 million euros)
The Osimhen rumor mill has been swirling almost every week this summer. Nevertheless, the Nigerian still plays in Naples. The reason might have to do with its number one spot on this list. Thanks to his services, the former Wolfsburg native increased his market value from 70 to 120 million euros. If it continues as it has so far, it is unlikely to become cheaper in the coming years.
