The crisis that has hit the world because of the pandemic has affected football. Top leagues were halted for some time and a major event such as Euro 2020 was delayed. However, it did not affect the transfer value of many players. We will tell about 10 players who had their transfer value increased in 2020.
Tapsoba signed for Leverkusen on January 31, 2020. His debut came against Borussia Dortmund. At Bayer, Tapsoba improved the skills of the first pass. Perhaps the lack of experience of the defender is connected with the high level of the Bundesliga. Tapsoba, after moving to Germany, began to block strikes and intercept passes more often. Because of that his price rose sharply.
Saka is a product of the London club. The defender made his debut for Arsenal back in November 2018 at the age of 17. Saka is an all-rounder who can play as both a defender and a winger. Saka is good at dispersing Arsenal’s attacks, has a good shott, often poses a threat, delivering balls from the flank, but not so good defensively.
In 2017, Bastoni was at Inter but became a player of the starting line-up only this season. Alessandro performed well on loan at Parma, where he played 24 matches in Serie A. The Italian improved the quality of the first pass. The 21-year-old defender has every chance to become the key defender of the Italian national team in the future.
We all agree on the fact that Haaland is a future start. Heis giving a great season after season. The Borussia Dortmund striker has already attracted the attention of many top clubs: Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Real Madrid. However, the player himself is not going anywhere yet.
It should be noted that his transfer value already surpassed €100 million. Interestingly Haaland has become one of the top picks in FIFA. A lot of players are choosing him and every factor is only aimed at increasing his popularity. In Norway, online Norwegian bookmakers are constantly making predictions about his future transfer price, which is likely to increase even more and numerous clubs will have difficulty in affording him.
Erling is eager to take some trophies in Germany before changing the club. In any case, the future club of the player should pay a considerable sum for the Norwegian. It is unlikely that the Bumblebees will agree to let go of their forward for less than 100 million euros.
Reyna made his debut in big football in January 2020, coming on as a substitute against Augsburg and becoming the youngest American to play in the German league.
In the October match against Freiburg, Giovanni delivered three assists after coming on as a substitute. At the end of 2020, Reyna was recognized as the best young football player in the United States. Borussia Dortmund should not worry about Sancho’s departure – he is ready to be a good replacement.
Greenwood has been astonishing in 2020. Mason became the main player of the team, and in a year and a half scored 20 goals. Greenwood is equally good at hitting both feet and scoring goals even from uncomfortable points.
Now it is difficult to imagine the attack of the Red Devils without a young star. If there are no questions for Mason on the game points, there is a claim about discipline. Greenwood had previously been suspended from the national team.
By the age of 20, Foden had already played almost 100 games for City. During this time, he scored 20 goals and gave 16 assists. Good work should be rewarded, so City intends to increase Foden’s salary three times.
Foden’s current deal with Manchester City runs until 2024. At the moment, the midfielder receives 25 thousand euros per week. Negotiations on a new contract are expected to conclude in early 2021.
Bruno is the main link to Manchester’s attack. With him and without him, Manchester United are a different team. Unsurprisingly, Fernandes is the only player on this list over the age of 21 whose value has gone up. This season the midfielder played 23 matches, scored 14 goals, and gave up 9 assists. In addition, Bruno entered the top 5 players with the most playing time in 2020 (4164 minutes). Fernandes was named the best player of the month in the EPL three times.
Fati’s value has doubled in 2020. 13 goals and five assists in a year and four months. In November, Ansu suffered a ruptured internal meniscus in his left knee and will miss at least three months.
In October, the Spaniard became the youngest goalscorer in the history of El Classico, breaking Raul’s record. Fati scored a goal against Juventus at the age of 17 years and 359 days. In 2020, the Spaniard showed himself in the national team: in the match with Ukraine, Ansu scored a goal and made an assist.
Davies had a great last season, playing one of the most important roles in Bayern’s triumph. Davies showed that he has great speed and can pass several defenders and give an accurate pass. In addition, Davies’ successful gear rate is at 90%. Davies has success not only in Bayern but also in the national team. Five goals and eight assists in 17 appearances for Canada. And that’s given that he’s a defender. Phenomenal!
