Goalkeepers have continued to gain more relevance in the world of football as a result of the demand for ball-playing goalkeepers. The rise in demand for quality goalkeepers has significantly increased the market value of top-class goalkeepers. In the last few years, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool have parted with huge sums to purchase Ederson Moraes, Kepa, and Alisson Becker respectively.
Currently, Paris Saint-Germain shot-stopper, Gianluigi Donnarumma is the most valuable goalkeeper in the world. The Italian shot-stopper moved to Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent but his age and the length of his contract have seen his market value increase. He is currently valued at €73.7 million.
Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker is the second most valuable goalkeeper in the world. The Brazilian shot-stopper is one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in the world and his role in Liverpool’s recent on-field success has seen his market value increase to €68.4 million.
Manchester City shot-stopper, Ederson Moraes is the third most valuable goalkeeper in the world. The Brazilian goalkeeper is one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in the world and since he joined Manchester City, he has been absolutely important to Pep Guardiola’s side. He is currently valued at €65.2 million.
Thibaut Courtois is the major reason why Liverpool failed to win the Champions League. The Belgian shot-stopper proved to be an immovable wall for Real Madrid as they got a 1-0 win against Liverpool in the final of the Champions League. His Champions League heroics have seen his market value increase significantly. The former Chelsea star is now valued at €62.4 million.
Arsenal’s shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale is the fifth most valuable goalkeeper in the world. The 24-year-old moved to Arsenal from Sheffield United last summer and his signature has proven to be a masterstroke for the Gunners. His performance for the Gunners throughout the season has seen his market value increase to €51.2 million.
