With the 2013/14 Premier League season underway, now looks the perfect time to look at the club’s current market value.
Many teams have splashed the cash this summer and increased the value of their sides. Some of the big names that have come to England’s elite division, include Jesus Navas, Roberto Soldado and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
Looking at the table, based on market value, Manchester City lead the way at the top. The Citizens have once again spent big this summer, bringing in Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic and Fernandinho to join Navas at the Etihad.
Premier League champions Manchester United have yet to make a major signing this summer and see themselves sitting in third place.
Tottenham are ahead of their north London rivals Arsenal in fourth place, after an extremely different transfer window, so far, for the two sides.
Liverpool have made a number of new signings this summer and sit comfortably in sixth place, and Southampton, who have brought in some major recruits, make the top ten.
The bottom three places are taken up by the Premier League new-boys, Cardiff City, Hull City and Crystal Palace.
With just under two weeks remaining in the transfer window, it will be interesting to see if this league changes when all player dealings are completed with.
