How every Man Utd player’s price on Football Index has changed this season

Manchester United‘s inconsistent season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been reflected by the changes in value of their players on Football Index.

United currently sit seventh in the Premier League, six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, after an up and down campaign to date. Solskjaer, however, is trying to rejuvenate the squad with a number of young players, meaning there could be value to be found on Football Index, the world’s first football stock market.

Just like any other stock market, the more traders who buy shares in a Manchester United player, the more their share price goes up.

While the Red Devils fluctuating form may make matchday dividends harder to come by, transfer speculation surrounding a number of their more high-profile players – most notably Paul Pogba – means media dividends are more likely.

A striking example of this came in their signing of Odion Ighalo, with the former Watford striker’s price rising 320% (£1.10) after swapping China for Old Trafford on deadline day.

Marcus Rashford has obviously been their star man this season, and his price has seen a decent rise despite his recent injury woes, although the rest of United’s risers have tended to be promising prospects or players whose reputations have benefited from being out of the team.

Eric Bailly, for instance, has seen the biggest percentage rise (59%) having missed the entire campaign to date. Keeping out of that backline has served him well.

Nemanja Matic, meanwhile, has seen a tidy rise of 36.67% thanks to some steadying performances upon his return to the midfield in recent weeks.

After an injury-hit season, Pogba’s value has decreased the most in terms of value out of the whole squad (£1.29), but he still remains the most expensive player at the club on Football Index, and with reports suggesting he is determined to leave the club this summer, the likelihood of media dividends mean he is still an attractive proposition.

Here’s how every Manchester United player’s price on Football Index has changed since the start of the season, with 13 seeing an increase and 15 having decreased.
