Liverpool Has Most Valuable Squad In Europe

Liverpool World Champions

The research group CIES Football Observatory have just released its most valuable squads in the transfer market from Europe’s top-five leagues, and it is the current European and World Champions who now sit top the pile.

The Liverpool squad is now worth a whopping €1.4 billion (£1.27 billion), which puts them ahead of every other club on the continent. Second is Premier League rival Manchester City at €1.36b.

Spanish giants Barcelona (€1.17b) and Real Madrid (€1.1b) are third and fourth respectively, with Chelsea shockingly in fifth place (€1.08b) despite having been banned from signing players in last summer’s transfer window.

According to CIES, the value of Chelsea’s squad has “strongly increased” due to the emergence of so many young players since the ban was imposed on them by FIFA.

The CIES use a number of variables including the age of the player, performances, economic value of their club and inflation to work out the values of players.

Paris St-Germain’s World Cup winning forward Kylian Mbappe, 21, has highest transfer value at more than £227m.
