The Stats of the most valuable players in the Spanish La Liga

 

  • Vinicius Junior

Vinicius Junior was impressive throughout Real Madrid’s chase for their 35th La Liga title. The 21-year old found the net seventeen times and recorded ten assists.

 

Vinicius’ goal contributions and entire performance throughout the 2021/22 season are his best since his arrival in Spain in 2018.

 

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti heavily relied on the individual brilliance of Karim Benzema, who scored twenty-seven goals and provided twelve assists along with Vinicius Junior in the league.

 

According to Transfermarkt valuation, Vinicius Junior is the most valuable football player in the Spanish La Liga. He is valued at €100.00m, which is massive for a 21-year old.

  • João Félix

 

João Félix appears to get back to his best form gradually. But far from his abilities in his first season with Atlético Madrid. The Portuguese only managed eight goals.

 

However, João Félix did not get the best opportunity to play regularly in the 2021/22 campaign as he was mainly used as a second striker by head coach Diego Simeone.

 

Félix’s value in the transfer market has dropped since last year. But he’d moved up in the rankings.

 

In 2019, Atlético Madrid paid €127.20m to SL Benfica, making João Félix the club’s most expensive signing of all time.

 

  • Mikel Oyarzabal

 

Powering Real Sociedad’s attack lineup, Mikel Oyarzabal has been one of the best players in the Spanish La Liga. The Spaniard had been with the club since 2015, scoring over 63 league goals.

 

In the 2021/22 season, Mikel Oyarzabal scored nine times as an offensive midfielder. His rise to the top of the most valuable players in the Spanish league could be well explained due to his consistency.

 

  • Eduardo Camavinga

One of the most impactful signings yet at Real Madrid, Eduardo Camavinga, has made a difference since he arrived at the Santiago Bernabéu.

 

In 2021/22, it was pretty evident Real Madrid had relied on the partnership between Eduardo Camavinga and Luka Modric to salvage the most critical points for the club, most especially in the Champions League quarter-finals and semi final clash against Chelsea and Manchester City.

 

Eduardo Camavinga moved to Real Madrid in 2021 for €31.00m from the French side of Stade Rennais.

 

  • Jules Koundé

Worth the hype and money? Jules Koundé is one of the best La Liga defenders. The Frenchman’s performance attracted multiple offers from Europe, including Chelsea FC, which had its 60 million euros bid turned down by Sevilla.

 

Jules Koundé is a modern defender who’s creative and defensively minded. His unique agility helps him feature as a right full-back or right-wing back.

 

Given the fact that Koundé has played competitively for the French Men’s National Team, he is capable of featuring for some of the biggest clubs in Europe, having to fear.

 

In 2021/22, Jules Koundé is one of the most consistent Sevilla players, averaging 7.0. Playing with the right foot, he’s been more effective defensively for Sevilla.

 

With Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atlético Madrid and Sevilla, the Spanish league houses some of the best players in the world. From established veterans to fast-rising young stars, Spanish clubs have competed in Europe just as it has unfolded since the early years.
