Mateo Retegui: The Most Valuable Player in Argentina

Mateo Retegui’s market value recently doubled to €16 million, making him the most valuable player in Argentina. The Tigre striker has been in phenomenal form, earning a call-up to Italy’s national team by Roberto Mancini. According to Scott Christensen, the Area Manager for Argentina and South America, Retegui is an “intense, powerful, self-sacrificing, and dangerous striker,” and has found his ideal club in Tigre to develop his full potential. Christensen also claimed that Retegui is the best player currently playing in Argentina.

Retegui’s market value is now ahead of Nicolás de la Cruz, who received a downgrade of €2m to €11m. De la Cruz was the most valuable player in River Plate before injuries prevented him from reaching his full potential. Boca Juniors and River Plate are the most downgraded clubs in Argentina’s top division.

Despite winning the league title, Boca Juniors’ squad value has decreased by €6.2m to €80m. The team’s poor performances have contributed to this drop, and many players’ market values have decreased, including Juan Hurtado and Sebastián Villa. Similarly, River Plate’s squad value has also decreased as many of their key players’ market values have dropped, including De la Cruz, Esequiel Barco, Paulo Díaz, and Agustín Palavecino.

However, Lucas Beltrán managed to double his market value to €6m, and the Millonarios remain the club with the most valuable squad in the league, with a €15m gap compared to their rivals, Boca Juniors. River Plate’s fortunes in the future depend on the next generation of talents.

One player to watch closely in Argentina’s top division is Gianluca Prestianni from Vélez Sarsfield. The 17-year-old midfielder received an upgrade of €2m to €5m and has been described by Scott Christensen as “one of the most promising players in Argentina.” Despite limited playing time, his talent is evident, and he is making his first steps with Vélez and the Argentine U17 squad.

Transfermarkt market values are calculated by considering different pricing models, with the Transfermarkt community evaluating and discussing player market values in-depth. However, these market values are not equal to transfer fees, and the goal is not to predict the price but the expected value of a player in a free market. Several factors determine market values, including transfer modalities and situational conditions.

In conclusion, Mateo Retegui’s exceptional form has earned him the title of the most valuable player in Argentina. However, a decline in market values for Boca Juniors and River Plate’s players has highlighted a need for these teams to focus on developing their next generation of talent to improve their fortunes.
