UEFA Euro 2016: Most valuable XI
Here is a list of the most expensive players playing at the Euro 2016.
Such is the quality of the Barcelona attack that any expensive XI almost invariably contains the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. But with all three of them being unavailable for selection in this article, it will certainly be interesting to see who makes the cut up front.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a certain starter in the XI but who joins him in the side an interesting question, same goes for who plays in defence. Here is the most expensive XI according to transfer market in this year's Euro. The entire XI will cost you just 680 million euros.
So here is the most expensive European Championship 2016 XI:
Manuel Neuer might be 30 and have made a few glaring mistakes in the last 18 months but there can be little doubt that the German shot-stopper is still one of the best in the business, if not the best. And if Germany are to claim their first European Championship title since 1996, the 30-year-old Bayern Munich keeper will need to be on his game throughout the tournament.
Despite the fact that both David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois are younger than him, the most expensive keeper, according to market value, is Neuer, valued 45 million euros. Second is de Gea, who despite not being a starter for Spain, is valued just 5 million fewer than the German shot-stopper.
