Modern-day football is now about the caliber of players a team has. A club cannot do much in any league if such a club does not have some of the best players in such a league. The more expensive players a club has, the more likely such a club can have one of the most valuable squads in the world.
Besides just being one of the most valuable squads in the world based on the price tag on the players, such a squad would be expected to be one of the most successful clubs in the world in terms of winning titles and important games.
Currently, 5 of the most valuable squads in the world are clubs playing in the Premier League which goes to show why the Premier League had 6 clubs who signed up for the failed European Super League. The top clubs from the Premier League who are in the top ten of the most valuable squads in the world are Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur.
While Spanish La Liga has three clubs in the top 10 most valuable squads in the world which include Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid.
The other two clubs are from French Ligue 1 – Paris Saint Germain, and German Bundesliga – Bayern Munich.
Surprisingly, Juventus did not make it to the top 10 most valuable squads despite having a 5-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo. Also, Inter Milan who have Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez didn’t make it to the top ten list.
