Oyarzabal rubs shoulders with the European aristocracy

Mikel Oyarzabal rubs shoulders with the aristocracy of European football, and that there is no coronavirus crisis that can stop him. The season of the Real Sociedad attacker, one of the captains of the txuri-urdin team, was being outstanding before all football stopped. And now, the week that LaLiga will return, that is confirmed through the update of the CIES Football Observatory, which places it among the 35 most valuable players in European football, the sixth national soccer player having a better market value than continental soccer figures such as Rodrygo, Hazard, Morata, Jovic … among others.

The Eibarrés, at only 23 years old, is among the 35 players with the most market value in Europe, placing him above 83 million. This football organization has released its biannual ranking of the estimated value of the players in the five major European leagues, based on algorithms that the CIES observatory manages internally. The most valued player is PSG player Kylian Mbappe, valued at € 259.2 million at age 21; and after the French four English soccer players appear: Raheem Sterling (194.7), Jadon Sancho (179.1), Trent Alexander-Arnold (171.1) and Marcus Rashford (152.3). Oyarzabal appears in position 35, and in sixth position of the national league championship, behind of Antoine Griezmann (136.4), Joao Félix (107.9) and Frenkie de Jong (102.1), Leo Messi (100.1) and Saúl Ñíguez (97.7). Behind them is the Real Sociedad player, with a value of 83.2 million euros, which also places him as the second national footballer with the highest market value on the continent.
