Cost £100k, now worth £34m more than Licha: Man Utd struck gold on “unbelievable” star

Posted by

Manchester United has a reputation for paying a high price to sign players, only to witness a sharp decline in value not long after.

Casemiro is a perfect illustration of this; after being acquired for £70 million last summer, his current assessed value is £30 million.

Erik ten Hag’s team will now need to adopt a different strategy in the transfer market as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks to address that issue as soon as possible.

Nevertheless, one current United player has seen an enormous increase in value over the past two seasons and might be seen as a wise acquisition.

Lisandro Martinez’s signing

After paying £47 million to accompany his manager from Ajax to Manchester United last summer, Lisandro Martinez has grown into one of United’s most important players. Despite this, the Argentine has only started seven Premier League games this season due to injury. He is currently facing yet another period on the sidelines after suffering an injury against West Ham United on Saturday, just his second league start since September.

His mindset, ball-playing skills, and proactive defence make him unmatched by any other center-back at the club, therefore this is a major loss for the team. The 26-year-old, who was previously referred to as a “absolute monster” by colleague Luke Shaw, takes the squad to entirely new heights, and his injury may define the season.

Even so, the left-footed defender’s current projected value is €40m (£34m). This decline in value can be attributed to his lack of playing time, although most United supporters still believe that ‘Licha’ is their finest defender.

Alejandro Garnacho’s Manchester United market value

Alejandro Garnacho made his matchday squad debut against Real Sociedad in September 2022, and two months later, he was given his first start against the Spanish team. It took him just 17 minutes to score his first goal.

In the present, the 19-year-old has grown into one of the United team’s most dependable players, displaying maturity much above his years. Journalist Rob Dawson calls Garnacho “unbelievable,” and given that he has made 15 Premier League starts and scored five goals with two assists, it is hard to argue against that.

The electrifying winger signed a contract in the summer of 2020 for a reported £100k. With an estimated value of €80 million (£68 million), he is currently ranked as United’s joint second-most valuable player in the entire team—double (or £34 million) Martinez’s value.

Both on and off the pitch, Garnacho is one of United’s most valuable players. His accomplishments confirm former teammate Fred’s prediction that “he will be one of the best players in the world, for sure.”

He has assumed a great deal of responsibility in the United attack at such a young age, and his disposition supports his skills. If he develops as promised, there’s no question that number will keep rising and that he will rank among United’s greatest players.
