Barca, Real and Liverpool in the Top 10 best selling players in the last 10 years

Transfermarkt data shows that in the past 10 years only two clubs worldwide have earned more than 1 billion euros from selling players.

Benfica and Atletico Madrid are two rare clubs that have earned more than 1 billion euros from selling players in the past 10 years according to Transfermarkt data.

In particular, Benfica is the best dealer in the world when he earned about 1.1 billion euros from the sale of 427 stars in the past decade.

Even this summer, Benfica still made about 70 million euros from the sale of Ruben Dias to Man City, although the club’s finances were affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. Last year, they grossed more than 200 million euros after selling Joao Felix, Raul Jimenez and Luka Jovic.

In the past 10 years, Benfica has also earned hundreds of millions of euros from the sale of other stars such as Ederson, Nelson Semedo, Victor Lindelof, Renato Sanches, Jan Oblak, Nemanja Matic, Axel Witsel, Fabio Coentrao, Angel di Maria, David Luiz or Ramires.

Another club that also makes more than 1 billion euros is Atletico Madrid. They earned 1.048 billion by selling top stars like Antoine Griezmann, Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao, Lucas Hernandez, Rodri, Sergio Aguero, David de Gea or Thomas Partey.

But Atletico Madrid is different from Benfica in that spending money to buy players is more than the proceeds from the sale of stars. In the past 10 years, they have lost about 50 million euros from buying and selling players.

The three clubs Juventus, Chelsea and Monaco are ranked next in the Top 10 best selling football clubs.

Juventus sold the most number of players in the world in the past 10 years at 582 people. Pogba brought in the largest revenue of 105 million euros. Meanwhile, Chelsea made the most of selling Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last summer for a fee of up to 165 million euros.

On the side of Monaco, they made up to 347 million euros from the sale of four young talents Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, James Rodriguez and Anthony Martial.

The two giants Barca and Real Madrid are only ranked seventh in terms of player sales, but the quality of their stars is unquestionable.

Barca still made 948 million euros, despite selling only 148 players. Neymar alone contributed up to 222 million euros when breaking the transfer record for PSG in the summer of 2017. But Barca still lost 674 million euros because of innocent and ineffective shopping in the past 10 years.

Similarly, Real Madrid earned 905 million euros, despite selling only 138 players. The best deals include Cristiano Ronaldo (105 million euros) or Angel di Maria (75 million euros).

Liverpool is only ranked 10th on the list of best selling football clubs with 803 million euros in revenue. Their biggest deals are Philippe Coutinho (€ 145 million), Luis Suarez (€ 80 million) and Raheem Sterling (€ 63 million).

Meanwhile, MU, Arsenal, Man City, Bayern Munich or Dortmund are not even in the Top 10.

Tottenham dropped second in the Premier League, Mourinho easily overthrew Liverpool? (Part 2)

The line of attacking players coach Jose Mourinho has in hand at Tottenham is quite large with Harry Kane’s position of striker Carlos Vinicius ready to replace, while Son Heung Min, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn and Gareth Bale contests the wing striker positions. Mourinho is therefore always capable of flinging in 1-2 strikers from the bench in a match to turn a deadlock.

However, the fact that even strong teams cannot rely on the depth of force to go far in every tournament, apart from the physical issue, the play style of clubs is very difficult to promote because the players have very little time to get to know each other before the season, mainly based on real combat experience through each game that of course cannot be equal to on the training ground with the direct shaping of the coaches.

So if Tottenham continues to maintain a high position on the Premier League standings in the next 10 rounds, then they might think about “letting go” in 1-2 cup competitions. The Europa League will still be Mourinho’s priority, but the League Cup and the FA Cup are two fronts where Spurs’ chance to win seems more. Mourinho always attaches importance to the League Cup, so he will face a difficult problem.

The season nevertheless just went through 7 rounds and usually it takes half of the season for the races to become clearer. Not to mention the upcoming Tottenham schedule is extremely difficult: Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Palace, Liverpool, Leicester and Wolves, not including the European Cup matches.

But Tottenham have got off to a very good start and will not be too surprised if they compete for the championship. It will still be a big surprise if they go all the way and finish first with the throne, because Liverpool, even in the heart of the hurricane, still finds a way to win.

Tottenham dropped second in the Premier League, Mourinho easily overthrew Liverpool? (Part 1)

Tottenham has risen to second place in the Premier League and is capable of winning the throne of Liverpool.

Tottenham won a rather strenuous 2-1 victory over Brighton thanks to a Gareth Bale goal, scoring after he came on from the bench just over 2 minutes. With a victory over an opponent that has made it difficult for nearly every team they have met since the start of the season, Spurs have now taken second place and are behind defending champions Liverpool by 2 points.

Tottenham this season still has bad matches, from being beaten by Everton to losing points to West Ham and Newcastle. But there is the fact that after 7 rounds, they are scoring the most in the Premier League while 9 goals are not too bad (the team that conceded the least, Arsenal, also conceded 7 goals).

Premier League 2020/21 will be a volatile season because the Covid-19 makes the schedule of this season more intense, the European Cup teams have to try to play in 3-4 fronts at the same time and because They have to rotate the formation. This season the injury situation has increased significantly while the big teams have shown more or less fatigue and the rule of replacing five reserves has been dropped, some clubs like Everton or Aston Villa have risen to the top although They are not really special about the gameplay yet.

In the context of that a surprise Leicester City 2015/16 style championship is entirely possible, the only question is whether Tottenham can do it. This season they have added a lot of quality players and have considerable depth in the attack line, plus the high form of the key players.

The depth factor is the most remarkable because Tottenham cannot always rely on 1-2 individuals to create mutations in every match. Harry Kane and Son Heung Min have been in very good form since the beginning of the season, but against Brighton, Son proved quite quiet while Kane did not have many opportunities. Tottenham still won thanks to Gareth Bale’s presence on the field.

Mourinho is angry because he lost to the Belgian club

Mourinho has expressed frustration on social media after Tottenham lost to Royal Antwerp.

Tottenham were defeated 0-1 at the hands of Royal Antwerp in the second match of the Europa League group stage. Launching a full-fledged squad, Tottenham did not play as sharp as usual and Ben Davies made a personal mistake that caused Lior Refaelov to score the only goal for the Belgian side.

Coach Jose Mourinho at the post-match press conference admitted his responsibility for this defeat, especially after the fact that he replaced up to 4 players in the first half of halftime shows that the starting lineup he launched out did not work. “I even wanted to change 11 people after the first half, and I didn’t change 5 because I was afraid the next 45 minutes would be very long. There was only one person at fault in this, I was the starting lineup,” he said.

However, Mourinho also proved quite annoyed with the players he trusted on the field and after the game, “The Special One” even made a strange move to Instagram a photo of himself sitting in the car. the team bus. Mourinho accompanied the photo with the comment: “Bad stones deserve bad results. Hope everyone on this car is as irritable as me. Tomorrow training starts at 11:00.

The time the photo was taken is at 9pm and Tottenham then took a night flight back to London, scheduled to arrive this morning October 30. The players then had to go home to rest before returning to the training ground at 11 o’clock, so the time frame was quite limited and it can be said that today’s training session will be like a penalty for the whole Tottenham team for the loss.

The four players replaced by Mourinho in the middle of the half were Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Carlos Vinicius. But of these, Dele Alli was especially criticized after the match. Besides, Harry Winks also played very badly and was even named as the player who contributed to the shocking 3-3 draw against West Ham on October 18.
