Messi, Neymar, Hazard: 20 players whose values have decreased the most in 2021/22

Lionel Messi and Neymar's market values have dropped considerably in the 2021/22 season

Lionel Messi did not hit the heights expected of him during his first season at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Argentine was expected to run riot in Ligue 1 after making the move from Barcelona to PSG.

But, he had a disappointing campaign by his standards, scoring ‘just’ 11 times and recording 15 assists in 34 matches.

His struggles mean, per Transfermarkt, his value has dipped by £27m over the course of the 2021/22 season.

But who else has seen their transfer value plummet?

Using Transfermarkt, we’ve listed the 20 players whose market values have dropped the most since the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

Messi is now worth £45m but, while his market value has dropped considerably, that figure is still incredibly high for someone who will turn 35 in June.

Neymar has also found form and fitness hard to come by and has seen his value drop to £67.5m from £90m.
