According to Transkermarkt valuations, Barcelona is the home to the two most valuable players in La Liga. Midfielders Frenkie de Jong and Pedri Gonzalez both have risen to an incredible market value.
De Jong is valued at 90 million euros, while breakout star Pedri’s valuation stands at 80 million euros (joint with Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix). The pair is also among the top 15 most valuable players globally and part of the top 5 most valuable midfielders in the world.
After an incredible debut season with Barcelona and then the Spanish national team at the Euros, where he was named young player of the tournament, Pedri’s stock has skyrocketed. There is plenty of talk suggesting that Barcelona will soon offer him a well-deserved, lucrative contract renewal.
De Jong’s rise began a couple of years prior at Ajax, but he has since only gone on to prove why he is widely regarded as one of the biggest midfield talents in the game right now. After a gradual adjustment period in a turbulent Barcelona side, he has begun exploding into life since the 2020-21 campaign.
The pair only seem to be getting better and better as they progress, which serves as brilliant news for Barcelona. They will be the stars that spearhead this Barcelona side into a new era brimming with youth and talent.
Barcelona have among the three youngest squads in the league by average age. 24-year-old Frenkie de Jong and 18-year-old Pedri being the faces of the team speaks volumes about their ability.
