The Serie A has never lacked attracting the star players and payment of huge sums for talented footballers to grace the league.
Here, we take a look at the Italian football league and how the clubs in it stack up based on their overall market values:
10) Torino – €162.9 million
One of the quintessential top half sides, Torino are nowhere near their derby city rivals Juventus. However, they do have a decent side capable of performing on the day and have a few talented players like Andrea Belotti, Armando Izzo and Simone Verdi who are among the highly rated ones.
9) Sassuolo – €202.03 million
Probably the most improved team so far, they have a mix of good experienced and youth players. Led by Francesco Caputo and the likes of Jeremy Boga and Domenico Berardi as their most valuable players.
8) Fiorentina – €250.2 million
They have recently gone on a streak of buying older players in their final years, which has seen a slight decline in their figures. Nevertheless, Fiorentina are always up there challenging for the Europa League spots.
7) Roma – €337.25 million
Once a giant in Italian football, Roma have been resigned to playing Europa League in recent times. Having lost players like De Rossi and Manolas of late, they have invested in young players and developed academy talent who are worth millions in the present era.
6) Lazio – €364.70 million
A much-improved club in the past few years under coach Inzaghi, Lazio have paid small sums and groomed them to make world-beaters. The likes of Ciro Immobile, Joaquin Correa and Sergej Milinkovic Savic are all boosts to the market valuation figures of the team.
5) Atalanta – €386.85 million
Perhaps the dark horses of Italian football, no one expected them to emerge the way they have. With a shrewd transfer policy, Atalanta have developed players to compete for Champions League spots.
4) AC Milan – €445.9 million
The Rossoneri have taken the league by storm with vastly improved performances. And sitting top of the table, they have been able to make investments in players like Sandro Tonali, Brahim Diaz and Simon Kjaer to boost their current valuation.
3) Napoli – €603.48 million
Always the most efficient spenders, Napoli backed it up with an Italian cup win last season. Holding onto valuable footballers such as Koulibaly and Insigne, they were able to financially add on Victor Osimhen to their ranks and are currently fifth in the league.
2) Inter Milan – €655.50 million
The nearest challengers for the league crown, Inter have been able to sufficiently supplement their squad with some experienced and upcoming players. However, everything has not gone as per plan this season and so Inter will need to buck up their ideas this season.
1) Juventus – €707.70 million
Always the title favourites, Pirlo’s men have the best squad in the Serie A and have always been able to identify deals for good players at cheaper prices. Even this season, they have the likes of Ronaldo, Dybala and De Ligt who are capable of adding value to any squad in the world.
