The 10 Portugal footballers with the highest price tag
Portugal have experienced plenty of success over the years, perhaps none more so than their 2016 European Championship victory.
Their recent success has come via the production of some supremely talented players, with many achieving great things at club level as well.
Their failure to progress deep into Euro 2020 will frustrate fans, but with talented youngsters coming through the ranks, such as Joao Felix, their future is in safe hands.
Using FootballTransfers' algorithm for player value, which takes into account player quality, contract length and a variety of other factors, who are the 10 Portuguese players with the highest price tag?
Portugal's 10 most valuable players
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes is Portugal's valuable player. He is worth €98.4m, which ranks sixth for players in the entire world.
He had a disappointing Euros, but after a stellar 2020/21 season at Old Trafford, his price tag is justified.
Behind him is the aforementioned Felix, who has struggled to fully impose himself in Spain, but is still worth €76.5m according to our estimations. That is, however, €49.5m less than the transfer fee that Atletico Madrid paid Benfica to sign Felix back in 2019.
Then come a trio of Manchester City players. Ruben Dias is worth the most at €74.9m, already €6.9m more than the club paid for him in 2020, then comes Bernardo Silva at €70.9m, and a drop down to Joao Cancelo at €47.9m.
|Bruno Fernandes||Man Utd||€98.4m|
|Ruben Dias||Man City||€74.9m|
|Bernardo Silva||Man City||€70.9m|
|Joao Cancelo||Man City||€49.9m|
Despite playing just 18 minutes at Euro 2020, Ruben Neves' past performances, and his long contract at Wolves mean he is worth €45.1m, and ranks sixth on our list.
His age, plus the fact that his Juventus contract ends in 2022, means he is worth just €38.2m, far less than the €100m they paid to sign him from Real Madrid back in 2018.
New RB Leipzig signing Andre Silva, and Wolves winger Pedro Neto round off the top 10.
