Umar Sadiq is the most valuable player in the Second Division

According to the Transfermarkt website, Umar Sadiq topped the list of footballers with a price of fifteen million along with four other teammates in the top-10.


After finishing the season in the Second Division with the promotion of Rayo Vallecano, the page specialized in the Transfermarkt market has updated the values of the players in this category. In it there is a change of leader, since Umar Sadiq reigns with a value of fifteen million, doubling the previous figure that was reflected in said website. A first position previously held by Raúl de Tomás, who has seen how he has been advanced by the Nigerian after an outstanding course in the discipline of Almería.

The revaluation of the rojiblancos footballers after a great campaign in the Second Division is the highlight of this report. Jorge Cuenca (+3 million), Manu Morlanes (+2 million), Samú Costa (+2 million) and Sergio Akieme (+1.5 million) increase their value considerably. The central, with a figure of six kilos, adds a million more than Morlanes, Samú and Akieme. The total value of the five unionist footballers amounts to € 36 million.

The rest of the players that appear in the top ten are from Espanyol de Barcelona. The aforementioned Raúl de Tomas is accompanied by Adri Embarba (7 million), Javi Puado and Sergi Darder (6 million) and Adri Pedrosa (5 million). They are the other five names that complete this list of highest values in the silver category of Spanish football.

What must be put into perspective, with only two teams in this ranking, are the results obtained in the competition. Espanyol has been promoted as champion of La Liga Smartbank, while Almería has been eliminated in the semifinals of the playoffs against Girona. Therefore, a little more was expected of this squad, especially in the final stretch of the championship.
