After analyzing the market value of defender Paolo Maldini, midfielder Ricardo Izecson “Kaka”, and striker Marco Van Basten during the last few days, something would be missing if we don’t make a goalkeeper part of this.
Yes, you’ve guessed it right, it’s going to be Dida, for whom Transfermarkt have chosen his 29-year-old version in the 2002/2003 season as the evaluation point, when he reached Champions League glory with the Rossoneri, while being world champion with his national team one year earlier.
Unlike the above-mentioned Italian, Brazilian and Dutch who were valued at €150 million, €145 million and €195 million respectively, Dida did not get anywhere near these numbers, as his peak season, according to the website, was at an old age. Therefore, his average value was set at roughly €59 million.
For more context, Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is the the current front-runner among “goalies” when it comes to market values with €90 million, followed by Liverpool’s €80 million-rated Alisson Becker, then Real Madrid‘s Thibaut Courtois and Barcelona‘s Marc-André ter Stegen with €75 million each.
