    Read this today which is interesting showing the potential transfer vales of each team's squad. We are top. However when I saw that Lukaku is valued at 165m euros I have to ask whether these guys are better at sums than football

    Transfer values per club: four potential billionaires

    Issue number 202 of the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post ranks big-5 league teams according to the estimated transfer value of their players. The aggregated value of current squad members is above one billion euro for four clubs: Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona and Chelsea.

    Transfer values are estimated on the basis of the algorithm exclusively developed by the CIES Football Observatory research team. According to this, Manchester City’s current squad has a total transfer value of almost €1.2 billion. Kevin de Bruyne is the potentially most expensive Manchester City player (€144.5 million), while three other City’s squad members are worth more than €100 million: Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.

    The up-to-date estimated values for all big-5 league players are available in the ratings module of the CIES Football Observatory website. The freshly conceived transfer value widget presents the historical trends for each player. Media interested in using this tool can contact us at football.observatory@cies.ch.

    Some strange figures in that.

    JFE is worth less than £17m at least they got that one right.

    As they use loan players in the squads of the borrowing club by the looks of things (Origi at Wolfsburg)) they don't appear to think much of our loan players at Girona with the most valuable squad member being 5M.

    Belotti is estimated to be worth 37% of Torino's entire squad :D

    Anyone who imagines that Romelu Lukaku is worth more than KDB, wants their lumps feeling.

    Excluding KDB, which of the players on that list would you feel is value for money if City were to offer those prices?
