Big-5 league clubs’ estimated squad transfer values

Issue number 350 of the Weekly Post presents the estimated squad transfer values of the 98 teams in the big-5.

The figures were calculated on the basis of the exclusive CIES Football Observatory algorithm.

The two teams having invested the most to sign their current players, Manchester City and Manchester United, also are at the top of those with the highest estimated squad value.

The Manchester teams would potentially collect more than €1.2 billion in transfer indemnities if they decided to put all their current squad members on the market.

Chelsea completes the podium with an estimated squad value of €946 million.

Barcelona heads the rankings in the Spanish Liga (€896M), Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga (€890M), Paris St-Germain in the French Ligue 1 (€808M) and Juventus in the Italian Serie A (€618M).

The estimated transfer value of all English Premier League players totals €8.9 billion (€445M per team on average).

For the other leagues of the big-5, these figures are €5.3 billion for the Spanish Liga (€263M per club), €4.5 billion for the German Bundesliga (€251M), €4.4 billion for the Italian Serie A (€222M) and €3.4 billion for the French Ligue 1 (€172M).

The individual estimates for all big-5 league players are available here.
