The squad valuations of all 20 Premier League Clubs – Surprising for Newcastle United?
How much are the squads at the 20 Premier League clubs worth?
An interesting table of each club’s squad value is shown below.
Of course, the exact value of any squad or individual player comes down to what somebody would pay if they/he were actually sold, a bit like your house.
However, this is a decent guide as it comes from a neutral perspective.
At Transfermarkt they are one of the best guides for transfer fees whenever a player moves and also carry ongoing valuations on each player, guided by their own algorithm which takes into account a range of factors.
It is the same for all/players clubs and interesting having a look at the table below.
Market value of all 20 Premier League squads via Transfermarkt:
£1.4bn Manchester City
£645m Manchester United
£299m West Ham
£226m Newcastle United
£207m Crystal Palace
£140m Aston Villa
£62m Sheffield United
As you can see, Newcastle United are 12th highest with a £226m squad valuation, an average they say of £8.07m per player valuation.
Some people might be surprised at how high Newcastle come in this list but maybe it is a bit deceptive.
Wolves are 11th in the list with their squad valued at £51m more than Newcastle’s but then the gap between NUFC in 12th and Burnley in 17th is only £45m, then you only have the three promoted clubs lower than that.
Maybe worth noting how Bournemouth have built up their squad and their valuation is £55m higher than Newcastle’s.
It is underlined that it is not just how much is paid out in transfer fees that decides the Transfermarkt valuations, when you see Tottenham in third and Man Utd only in fifth, considering how much more money Man Utd have paid out in transfer fees. Excellent deals by Liverpool will have seen the valuations of the likes of Salah and Mane soar compared to what the scousers paid for them.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa have spent a massive £134m (according to Transfermarkt) this summer and yet their squad valuation is only £6m higher than that figure, pointing to the Transfermarkt valuations of some of their signings being far lower than what Villa ended up paying for them.
