Transfermarkt, a web specialized in the football transfer market, has published a list with the five players whose value has fallen more in the market. We can see the Real Madrid player James Rodríguez in this list. Florentino Pérez won’t be very happy to see that James price in the market has fallen down in the last months.
The list consider the price in the market in January of 2016 and the current value. According to transfermarkt, James Rodríguez value in 2016 was €80M and now his price is €50M, so the price has decreased 37.5%. Obviously, the time spent on the bench has affected his price in the market and also his poor performances when he had the chance to play.
This could change in the following weeks. James Rodríguez is doing a great job with his national team -he just scored the decisive goal against Bolivia in the qualification game for the Russian World Cup- and now he could shine with Los Blancos in the end of the current season. He needs to get Zidane’s confidence in order to have more minutes in the important games.
Mario Gotze value has also fallen down in the last month. The former Bayern Munich player went to Borussia Dortmund but he suffered an illness and, at the moment, he’s not able to show his level. Therefore, the value in 2016 was €45M and now is €20M.
Former Atlético Madrid striker Jackson Martínez is another example. His value was €30M, but he failed to succeed with Atlético Madrid and he moved to China. Now his value is €9M playing for Guanzhou Evergrande.
The last players in the list are Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao, whose value is €20M and €15M, according to the site. Both values dropped by €20M in the last year. Their age and their low moment have affected their value. However, the Colombian striker is playing now as his best, so this number could rise again.
