Do you really need to spend big?

Football clubs are spending more and more on players but is it necessary?

Dele Alli transfered from MK Dons to Spurs for 6.63 million €. His market value is now 12 million €.With 10 goals and 9 assists this season he has transformed into one of the Premier League’s best midfielders.Included in the PFA Team Of The Year and nominated for best young player.Not bad for someone who just recently turned 20.He is young,bursting with talent,scores stunning goals and if Spurs can hold onto him might just win them the league.

Dimitri Payet transfered from Marseille to West Ham for 15 million €.He is my buy of the season with 12 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season.Included in the PFA team of the year and nominated for player of the season.He hunts for nutmegs,scores incredible free-kicks,skills you onto your arse and is “better than Zidane”.

Riyad Mahrez transfered from AC Le Havre to Leicester City for 500 thousand € . His market value now is a whopping 20 million€.With 16 goals and 10 assists he is included in the PFA Team Of The Year and will probably win player of the year.He scores more than Raheem Sterling assists more than Eden Hazard and will maybe even win the league with Leicester.

These players are proof that you don’t have to spend big to get quality players with good stats.

Who else deserves a mention?

  1. An interesting post and it certainly provides food for thought; the three players mentioned have all had excellent seasons, although it could be said that at €15 million Payet was more of a ‘gamble’ than a ‘find’. Vardy, Kane and Kante were all nominated for the PFA Player of the Year and all offer excellent value as well as Mahrez who won it and Alli who won Young Player of the Year. Equally Bellerin, Rose and Morgan all made the PFA Team of the Year and were all acquired at relatively low cost.


    1. Yes if you look at the entire PFA team of the year you will find that the entire team costs less than Raheem Sterling.Kane and Bellerin are excellent examples of players coming through the youth ranks.Kante for me is also one of my favourite players to watch because of his incredible ball winning skills.

    1. True ,I think Leicester should try their best to keep hold of Mahrez,Vardy and Kante if they want to succeed next season.Maybe spend some of that TV money as well.
