AC Milan’s squad has significantly devalued when compared to the start of the season, according to the latest data available.
In the midst of a season disrupted by coronavirus (or COVID-19), the Rossoneri have not exactly had the best of campaigns up until this point as they once again seem almost certain to miss out on a top four finish.
Speaking to Sky Italia (via MilanNews), journalist Manuele Baiocchini made a careful analysis on Milan and on the devaluations of the squad.
He began by stating that the decrease in value of the playing staff overall is the product of a season which has not been satisfactory and has not been up to expectations. Milan wanted to get back into Europe and possibly the Champions League while at this moment they are not set to achieve either.
The squad has devalued a lot, Baiocchini adds, as at the beginning of the season it was worth almost half a billion while now it has devalued by €94.5million – a drop of almost 20%.
It is clear that sales in the month of January must also be included, with players such as Krzysztof Piatek (€27m) and Mattia Caldara leaving, but at the same time there are also many players who individually have lost a lot of their value.
In total, 13 out of 24 players in the squad have decreased in value, with the worst being Kessiè, Calabria and Paquetà according to Transfermarkt data.
It isn’t all dom and gloom though: Theo Hernandez has grown from €18million to €40m, while Ismael Bennacer and Mattia Gabbia have grown a lot.
