New dele valuation miles adrift


Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Dele Alli has been named the most valuable Under-21 footballer in the world. A study carried out by Soccerex found that the two-time PFA Young Player of the Year is worth £73.09 million (€82.6m - AUS$119.88m - US$95.27m) in the current market which saw him finish above several high-profile players in his age range.

That is the report from IBT Times, however the accurate CIES Football Observatory suggest he is worth a massive amount more than that. they suggest only Messi is more valuable and they take into account contract length. CIES suggest he is worth £136.63 million (€155.1m - AUS$228.79m - US$176.88m).

That is a vast difference and shows they must be using different criteria. If you look at the transfer fees being asked now, the upper figure appears more accurate. That is also shown by their valuation of the 18-year-old (19 in December ) Monaco forward Kylain Mbappe at £54.8 million (€61.7m - AUS$89.48m - US$71.07m).

Three clubs have bid £88.49 million (€100m - AUS$145.08m - US$115.35m) for him, Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Incidentally, for those of you wondering, Ross Barkley doesn't make the 110 most valuable players in Europe, due to only having a year left on his contract, his transfer value is therefore diminished.

  1. Whether these player valuations are a 'blow-off top'(trader lingo for for extreme valuations unlikely to be repeated in the near future) remains to be seen but what it does mean is that, MANU for example, can no longer afford our to buy our top players so all the current bullshit about having missed out on Eric is simply face-saving bullshit.
    I repeat, take a look at the MANU balance sheet and factor in that they have already spent a net £96m this transfer window....
