Most valuable XI in world football at the moment
Footballers are transferred for ridiculously high amounts of money these days. Whether it be Neymar's and Mbappe's incredible transfers to PSG or Barcelona's big money acquisition of Ousmane Dembele, football clubs are forking out huge amounts of money to get the player they want.
However, some times the transfer fee might be well above or well below their actual market valuations. Our friends at Transfermarkt have crunched the numbers and come up with the most valuable XI based on market value at the moment.
La Liga as always dominates the list, but only 2 players out of the fabulous 4 of Ronaldo, Messi, Suarez, and Griezmann make it. Without much ado, let us take a look at the most valuable XI in world football at the moment:
Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid) - Goalkeeper: £40 million
In the last few seasons, Atletico Madrid have always had some outstanding young goalkeepers. After David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois, 24-year-old Slovenian youngster Jan Oblak has been turning heads with his stunning shot-stopping skills for Los Rojiblancos.
Winner of the prestigious Ricardo Zamora trophy (best goalkeeper award) for two seasons running, Oblak has displayed tremendous powers of concentration, reflexes, and ability to command the box over the last two seasons.
Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid side are renowned for being defensively sound, and Oblak as the goalkeeper has played a huge role in cementing Atletico Madrid’s place among the elite both in La Liga and Champions League.
