“The Hype Surrounding Thiago Almada: Unveiling the Fascination Behind Atlanta United’s Latest Transfer Target”

By FPL360


Thiago Almada, a player for Atlanta United FC in Major League Soccer (MLS), recently saw his market value increase to €27 million, making him one of the most valuable players in the league. Before Lionel Messi joined the MLS with a market value of €35 million, Almada’s value would have set a new record. European clubs, including Napoli and Ajax Amsterdam, are reportedly scouting Almada and may be interested in signing him.

Atlanta United, however, is likely to demand a significant fee for Almada, with reports suggesting they will use the €24 million transfer of Miguel Almiron to Newcastle United as a benchmark. Considering Almada’s recent market value increase and the fact that the MLS transfer window is closed, it is expected that any initial offers for the player will be rejected.

Almada’s development as a player has been impressive, and he has already been nominated for the World Cup squad. At just 22 years old, he is already a complete playmaker, providing assists, scoring goals, and being dangerous from set pieces. His numbers this season, with nine goals and ten assists in 24 games, highlight his impact on the team. Almada’s shooting technique and ability from set pieces make him a valuable weapon.

According to statistics from Wyscout, Almada ranks highly in several categories in MLS. He is third in shots (83), first in key passes (26), and second in smart passes (47). He also has a high number of progressive runs (101), second only to Riqui Puig. These statistics demonstrate Almada’s all-around skills and contribute to his high market value.

Transfermarkt’s market values are calculated using various pricing models and input from the Transfermarkt community. They are not necessarily indicative of transfer fees but represent the expected value of a player in a free market. The market values take into account factors such as transfer modalities and situational conditions.

Overall, Almada’s market value increase and interest from European clubs highlight his potential and the impact he has had on Atlanta United. The club is likely to demand a significant fee for his transfer, ensuring they receive fair compensation for one of the league’s most valuable players.
