Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland is the most valuable player in the German Bundesliga, according to the latest update by Transfermakt.
The Norwegian supplanted Borussia Dortmund teammate,Jadon Sancho as the most valuable player following a market value gain of €10 million which means he is now valued at €110m while Sancho’s valuation remains at €100 million.
While Dortmund struggled, the 20-year-old forward continued to break records and set new benchmarks on his way to the very top of the game.
“Because he was able to continue his form from last season across all competitions, the interest in him from top clubs will not drop any time soon,” Bundesliga market value admin Martin Freundl (Soyen) said.
“Because of his consistency, he was able to increase his market value to €110 million, which makes him the most valuable player in the Bundesliga.
There is also movement behind the Borussia Dortmund duo. Serge Gnabry—the COVID-19 adjustment aside—sees his market value decrease for the first time since August 2016.
The winger drops from third place to fifth place behind teammates Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies.Gnabry struggled to maintain his consistent performances from last season and lacked precision and timing, which is also reflected by his low output in goals and assists.
Gnabry’s market value drops by €20 million to now €70 million. Kimmich, whose market value went up to €90 million, replaces him as the most valuable German player.
Gnabry is a symbol of a trend at Bayern Munich; more than a dozen players from the Bavarians have seen their market value drop. Altogether, the squad’s market value decreased by €50 million, which sees the club drop below PSG in international comparison.
Despite the club’s perceived dominance in the Bundesliga and undefeated run in the Champions League, there have also been weaknesses laid open in the DFB Pokal defeat to Holstein Kiel. The defence, in particular, had problems, and games without conceding have become a rarity. Exemplary for the whole defensive setup, the likes of Benjamin Pavard (-€10m to €35m) and Niklas Süle (-€11m to €37m) have lost in market value.
