The 10 most expensive players of the tournament on the transfer window
L’Women’s Euro 2022 football is currently taking place in England, from July 6 to 31, 2022. Initially scheduled for last summer, it has been postponed to this year, due to the rescheduling of the Men’s Euro and the 2020 Olympic Games, due to the pandemic. Sportune offer you a ranking of the 10 most expensive players in the competition.
The Golden Ball Alexia Putellas, absent from Euro 2022
If she had not been injured in training, the day before the start of the Euro, Alexia Putellas would monopolize the first place in this ranking. Indeed, the 2021 Ballon d’Or suffered a serious knee injury on July 5, which will keep him away from the field for almost the entire 2022-2023 season. According to German website Soccerdonna, the Barcelona player is valued at €600,000.
Two Norway players among the most expensive in the transfer window
In the absence of the Spaniard, two Norwegian players are in the top 3 of the best rated female footballers of this European Championship. We find the Lyonnaise Ada Hegerberg, Golden Ball 2018 and top scorer in the history of the Women’s C1, who is the most expensive player in this competition. His compatriot Caroline Graham Hansen, who plays for FC Barcelona, is on the last step of the podium. Only one Frenchwoman is present in this ranking, namely the PSG striker, Marie-Antoinette Katoto, estimated at €375,000. Like the Dutch Like Martens, 7th in the standings and also on the flank, the Euro ended too quickly for the Parisian striker, due to a nasty injury contracted against Iceland.
