Dembélé, Lucas & Co.: LaLiga’s Most Valuable XI
Dembélé has found top form, after a forgettable start of the season for FC Barcelona. He has helped form the best offensive trio in Europe at the moment alongside Lionel Messi (31) and Luis Suárez (32). The Frenchman has been upgraded from € 80m to € 120m, making him the most valuable LaLiga player after Messi and Antoine Griezmann (27).

Coutinho, on the other hand, has been trailing for months and hasn’t scored a goal in the league or Champions League since October. For Barça’s record purchase, his value is down from 140 million to 100 million euros.
The world’s most valuable teenager is Vinícius Júnior thanks to a rise of 35 million euros –his value now is 70 million euros. Under Real coach Santiago Solari, the Brazilian summer signing is often chosen as a preference over Marco Asensio (23) – with his new market value, Vinícius Júnior equals BVB pro Jadon Sancho (18) and now shares the title of the most valuable teenager in the world.
