La Liga has been host to a number of the best footballers to have ever played the sport, with some of them currently plying their trade in the division at the moment.
Indeed, with many of the talented individuals already playing for the likes of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, the Spanish top division has become a popular sports league for bettors around the world, including those who use sportsbooks they find on apuestas24.mx.
Here are the five most valuable players on the list, with each of their transfer values having come via TransferMarkt.
5. Thibaut Courtois and Marc-Andre ter Stergen (Real Madrid and Barcelona) – €75 million
Both Thibaut Courtois and Marc-Andre ter Stergen are can be considered to be two of the best goalkeepers in European football at the moment, with both having been vitally important to their respective sides. Courtois has helped Real Madrid to win a La Liga title, whilst ter Stegen has been able to win numerous throughout his career.
4. Ansu Fati (Barcelona) – €80 million
Ansu Fati looks likely to be the next big thing to come out of FC Barcelona and perhaps could be the man to replace Lionel Messi once the Argentine departs the Nou Camp. The 18-year-old has already had tounges wagging in Catalonia with his performances, as he managed to score five goals in the 10 appearances he made this season before an injury to his knee cut things a little short. However, he is expected to return, so perhaps he will pick up from where he left off.
3. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – €80 million
We mentioned the South American just a moment ago, but he comes in at third on this list of most valuable players in La Liga currently. Of course, his value to FC Barcelona is known throughout the world as Messi is considered to be one of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. However, he is now 33-years-old and that has meant his value has decreased. Nonetheless, whether he is at the Nou Camp beyond the summer or not remains a huge question, there is no doubting just how valuable he is to Barcelona.
2. Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid) – €90 million
If you assumed that Courtois and ter Stergen being high on the list was impressive, then Jan Oblak’s position as number two in the list of the most valuable players currently in La Liga will raise eyebrows. The 28-year-old has been nothing but phenonemal for Atletico Madrid since being with the Los Rojiblancos and has managed to keep 152 clean sheets in 219 games for the Spaniards to date.
1. Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid) – €100 million
Making the number one spot is another Atletico Madrid superstar, this time Joao Felix. The Portuguese star had so much hype surrounding his future in the game, it meant Los Rojiblancos had to break their transfer record to bring him to Wanda Metropolitano. A poor debut campaign has since been erased as the 21-year-old has acclimatised to his new surroundings, having scored eight goals so far this season and playing a pivotal role in their hunt for the La Liga title.
