Hazard from Chelsea, De bruyne from “my Teams” and Lukaku from Everton worth 70 million, 60 million and € 35 million respectively. The authority of the Belgians on the football transfer market has strengthened the Chelsea’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois (€35 million) and midfielder “Zenith” Axel Witsel (28 million euros).

France from-for scandal with blackmail ex-player of the Moscow “Dynamo” Mathieu Valbuena was left without Karim Benzema (€60 million) and is ranked in the top 3 most expensive teams of FOUR-16.

The British are the most expensive players — left winger Manchester city, Raheem sterling (50 million euros) and attacking midfielder “Manchester United” Wayne Rooney (40 million). England, the only EURO team in which no one Legionnaire!


Hungary for the first time after 10 unsuccessful attempts to qualify to the final of the European championship. And that helped the new format of the selection: third place in the group ensured the Magyars participation in the play-offs, where they defeated the Norwegians. It is no wonder that the total transfer value of their players was the most modest in the Euro-16: 23 players from the application of Hungary before TH was given on the market total of 27.3 million euros. After a Grand exit from the group of marketers will surely amend. The best in the team contract has a former midfielder Moscow “Dynamo” balázs Dzsudzsák (6,25 million). While he plays for the Turkish “Bursaspor”.

23rd in the list was the debutant of the championship Northern Ireland. The total transfer price of its players to 35.9 million euros.

Sports honor of Slovakia, defend the defenders tomáš hubočan (6.5 million euros) and Jan Durica (400 thousand euros), played for Moscow “Dynamo” and “locomotive”.

All four debutants successfully passed a sieve of a group stage. You can not say about the Russian team.

Getting old is no fun

The Russian team, so weak speaking at the Euro-16, located on the 13th position in the ranking: 23 player is estimated to 133.5 million euros.

The second most valuable player of the national team was the midfielder of “Zenit” Oleg Shatov (13 million euros). This amount raises many questions to the managers of the St. Petersburg club. For comparison: the leader of the English attack Vardy from Leicester ” is on the market for 1 million euros less. It is no secret that because of the limit on foreigners in the Premier League transfer fees of many players, the Russians, to put it mildly, “overheated”.

We will add that Russia after Ireland became the most senior team TH: the average age of our players is 29.3 years. The team was only one legionary — the Roman Neustädter, who recently decided to leave Schalke (7 million euros). Most likely, we will see him in CSKA.
