Tue, 6 Dec 2016 23:14:00 -0500

Here are the players who have increased their market value the most this summer, according to sports database Transfermarkt. The industry experts take into account a player's recent performances, consistency and potential, international experience, and marketability when calculating his transfer market value. FORBES analyzed recent statistics to come up with this summer's most valuable Dream Team XI,with honorable mentions listed as subs.

Market Value: $39.25 million

Summer Increase: (+ $11.25 million)


Slovenian keeper Jan Oblak has arguably been one of the best in the game this past season. He was a crucial part of Atletico Madrid's strong season in La Liga and the Champions League - Oblak was named the top goalkeeper in Spain for conceding only 18 goals in 38 games, breaking a 22-year old league record in the process. The tall Slovenian kept 24 clean sheets last year, which has seen his market value continue to rise over the summer.

Market Value: $22.5 million

Summer Increase: (+ $7.75 million)


21-year-old defender Joshua Kimmich had already made a name for himself last season, having gotten 15 league starts under his belt during Pep Guardiola’s last season as Bayern Munich manager.When he was called up for Germany's Euro squad, the versatileyoungster put in a string of consistent performances for the national team. While he didn't play the first two games, Kimmich became a mainstay in the German team during their knockout round fixtures.

Market Value: $28 million

Summer Increase: (+ $11.25 million)


French center back Samuel Umtiti was another promising young player snapped up at the beginning of the summer, this time by Barcelona. At Euro 2016, he earned his way into France’s starting line-up despite his young age. Before the tournament, Umtiti commanded an approximate market value of $14.25million. In early July,Barcelona announced that they would pay French team Lyon $28 million for Umtiti, a small fee considering he is arguably one of the most promising young center backs in the world.

Market Value: $22.5 million

Summer Increase: (+ $13.5 million)


The 22-year-old Ivorian defender has a big billing to live up to after moving to Manchester United for an approximate fee of $42.5 million this summer. The dynamic center back has already impressed United's new boss, Jose Mourinho, during preseason. Last season, Bailly was the key man in a Villarreal defense that boasted 17 clean sheets in La Liga, allowing the team to secure fourth place behind champions Barcelona and Champions League finalists Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Villareal made quite a profit from Ivorian, however, who they originally bought for only $6.5 million.

Market Value: $28 million

Summer Increase: (+ $11.25 million)
