Premier League clubs – Transfer value of Newcastle United squad compared to other 19

2 weeks ago

An interesting new report from the CIES Football Observatory has presented a breakdown on Premier League clubs, of how much the transfer value of each of the 20 squads is.

Enabling us to compare what the Newcastle United squad transfer value is rated at, compared to the other 19 Premier League clubs.

It is the estimated transfer value, not how much was paid out by each club for their current squads, though obviously that does tend to play a major part in dictating where clubs are rated.

CIES Football Observatory report that they have compiled the table using the following methodology:

“Issue number 350 of the Weekly Post presents the estimated squad transfer values of the 98 teams in the big-5 [European leagues – Bundesliga, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and Premier League].

“The figures were calculated on the basis of the exclusive CIES Football Observatory algorithm.

“The two teams having invested the most to sign their current players, Manchester City and Manchester United, also are at the top of those with the highest estimated squad value.”

This is how the table looks for the 20 Premier League clubs using the CIES Football Observatory transfer value rating model:

Premier League Clubs Squad Transfer Values 4 October 2021

As you can see, only five Premier League clubs having a lower transfer rating for their squads than Newcastle United.

The 215m euros for NUFC, equates to roughly £184m at the current exchange rate.

When it comes to all 98 clubs in the big five European league, Newcastle are 42nd highest.

NUFC one place below Serie A club Sassuolo who are at 229m euros, whilst Hoffenheim are one place below Newcastle at 209m euros. Hoffenheim is of course where Mike Ashley says he paid £43m (50m euros) to sign Joelinton from 27 months ago, with 45 months of the Brazilian’s NUFC contract remaining, I would love to know exactly how much his transfer value is now rated at…

To be honest though, in the real world and when it comes to real money, apart from ASM, which other Newcastle player would any club pay sizeable money for as things currently stand?

Whilst on how the Premier League and other four big leagues compare, the CIES Football Observatory comment:

“The Manchester teams would potentially collect more than €1.2 billion in transfer indemnities if they decided put all their current squad members on the market. Chelsea completes the podium with an estimated squad value of €946 million.

“Barcelona heads the rankings in the Spanish Liga (€896M), Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga (€890M), Paris St-Germain in the French Ligue 1 (€808M) and Juventus in the Italian Serie A (€618M).

“The estimated transfer value of all English Premier League players totals €8.9 billion (€445M per team on average).

“For the other leagues of the big-5, these figures are €5.3 billion for the Spanish Liga (€263M per club), €4.5 billion for the German Bundesliga (€251M), €4.4 billion for the Italian Serie A (€222M) and €3.4 billion for the French Ligue 1 (€172M).”
