The coronavirus pandemic is set to have a huge impact on the business done in this summer’s transfer window.
Huge amounts of money is being lost by clubs all across Europe and this has inevitably had an affect on the transfer values of some of the most high-profile stars.
Transfermarkt have noted how much each Premier League club’s players’ market value has dropped in recent weeks amid the indefinite postponement of top flight football.
We looked at the three Manchester United players whose transfer value has fallen the most.
As reported by Manchester Evening News, Pogba still wants to leave Old Trafford. But United are unlikely to let their World Cup winner leave on the cheap.
Pogba’s transfer value has changed from £90m to £72m, a remarkable 20% fall. We expect the club to remain resolute and hold out for their original asking price if the likes of Real Madrid or Juventus come calling.
Rashford’s market value has plunged from £72m to £57.6m on the Transfermarkt website.
The 22-year-old has established himself as arguably the most important player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ squad and would have competed for the golden boot this season if he avoided injury.
The academy product is invaluable to Solskjaer; an essential part of the Norwegian’s rebuild with his new found home in the inside left position.
It is universally accepted that the £80m transfer fee paid to Leicester City for Maguire’s services was excessive. But the signing of the England international was necessary and United finally have a leader at their heart of defence. Maguire’s performances have gone up a level since being handed the permanent captaincy after Ashley Young left for Inter Milan in January.
Maguire had been valued at £62m, but this has dropped to just above £50m in the latest figures.
