Paulo Dybala (Argentina)

José María Giménez (Uruguay)

Surprisingly, the third location is occupied by the Uruguayan player José María Giménez.

The Uruguayan is part of Atlético de Madrid, the team that most increased its value for this transfer market. Gimenez scored the first goal of Uruguay in Russia 2018 and was one of the most solvent defenders of the Cup, action that led him to improve his price.

According to As, Giménez is the twelfth player who most increased his value from the World Cup, rising from 45 to 50 million Euros and surpassing much more named players like the world champions Corentin Tolisso, Benjamin Pavard.


Willian (Brazil)

If there is a player who has never had an enviable cost, but because of his talent he has been able to increase it, that is the Brazilian midfielder Willian.

In the publication of more revalued As and with which the Republic coincides, Willian appears in the first planes, since he went from costing from 32 to 36 million Euros. Although this value does not seem very high in comparison to others of his position, it is very important for him and especially for Chelsea.

Hirving "Chucky" Lozano (Mexico)

Finally, the Mexican Hirving "Chucky" Lozano stands as the last member of the total list published by the aforementioned Spanish portal, to significantly increase his value in this post-world transfer season.

Despite the fact that the Mexican national team lost against Brazil, Lozano had been one of the sensations so far in the Aztec cast, especially for his performance against Germany, where he scored the only goal of the match. This registration earned the player of the Dutch PSV the increase of his value from 25 to 30 million Euros, a figure that also leads him to be an accessible midfielder for the big clubs.
