Huge reflexes, great ability to make decisions, and owner of one of the best footwork reminiscent of a goalkeeper, Marc-André ter Stegen is not a starter in Germany due to the presence of Manuel Neuer, but he has been around for many years at Barcelona, a club with which he has won leagues and a Champions League.

Ederson Moraes, 28, is in one of his best moments; and proof of this is that his market value continues to be one of the highest for a goalkeeper. Like Ter Stegen, Ederson can boast of having a great game with his feet, being almost always the first pass option in Manchester City and the one who often starts the game. If he can win the Premier League again, or finally the Champions League, it is more than likely that Ederson's value will continue to rise.
