3. Ronaldinho | Atletico Mineiro

Highest market value: £70.5m ( d.o.v - September 9 2007)

Current market value: £1.3m

Position: Attacking midfield

According to the data, his peak value was around 2007 - that's not to say he was necessarily playing his best football then.

Nowadays, a 33-year-old Ronaldinho would barely fetch £2m.
