Elseid Hysaj is one of the world’s most expensive players. This fact is now confirmed even by specialized institutions like the CIES Football’s Observatory. According to a very serious survey conducted by this institution, focused on players from 5 of Europe’s largest championships, the Shkodra born-player card value goes up to EUR 45.8 Million. The Albanian footballer ranks at 87th place in this list, leaving behind known names of the world’s football like Abala and Hummels of Bayern Munich, Manchester United goalkeeper De Gea, Isco, Rodriguez and Ramos of Real Madrid, Busquet of Barcelona, Bonucci and Aleks Sandro of Juventus.
Such positive evaluation is expected to raise the player’s value in the international market that is now seen as one of the best right wing defenders in the European football.
CIES survey is based in an algorithm generated by a careful analysis of over 2000 money-transfers and payments. This process includes also the player’s age, performance and position on the field.
