Real Madrid possess the most valuable squad in the world

Real Madrid have returned to winning titles with increasing regularity once more, with their latest being the crown for the world’s most valuable team.

Over the course of their successful double-winning campaign, Real’s value has increased significantly to reach 783.3 million euros.

That is according to data which was accumulated by analytics based website Transfermarkt and it is a number which no other club has come close to matching.

In addition to winning LaLiga and the Champions League, they also added the European Super Cup and Club World Cup trophies to their haul.

The front three for the club are valued at 240m euros alone, which is 30.6 percent of the total value of the team.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been marked down for 100m euros and is followed by Gareth Bale on 80m euros and Karim Benzema, who has a tag worth 60m euros.

Before starting the 2016/17 campaign, their only major outlay was to bring Alvaro Morata back to the club for a fee in the region of 30m euros.

Real also brought in 34.5m euros from the sales of Jese Rodriguez, Denis Cheryshev, Omar Mascarell and Alvaro Medran.

A similar situation could play out this summer as if Morata and James Rodriguez do depart the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, those funds could be used to finance the signing of Kylian Mbappe.

No other club comes close to matching Real’s value as the next closest side to them is Barcelona, whose valuation is some 50m euros short of their rivals at 733m euros.

After the Clasico rivals come Bayern Munich at 566.1m euros, a substantial nine figures fewer than Zinedine Zidane’s squad.

Outside the top three are Manchester City, who are joined in making up the top five by another Spanish club, Atletico Madrid, whose squad is valued at 502.5m euros.

The other three most valuable teams are Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Champions League finalists Juventus.

Real’s players are also highly rated beyond simply their price but also for their influence and ability.

According to the British magazine World Soccer, of the 500 most influential players in the game today, 19 of them play for Los Blancos.

Namely, those are Keylor Navas, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Pepe, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Isco, Marco Asensio, Mateo Kovacic, James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Alvaro Morata and Jesus Vallejo.
