Sports Brief looks at the top 10 market value decreases following the latest update by Transfermarkt.

Romeo Lavia – down €10 million

Signed in August 2023 from Southampton, big things were expected from the Belgian midfielder.

As reported by GOAL, he signed a seven-year deal with the London-based outfit after they beat Liverpool to his signature.

Since signing for the Blues, Lavia has only made one appearance, playing 32 minutes in an EPL game against Crystal Palace. He is currently valued at €40 million.

Moises Caicedo – down €10 million

Chelsea have the two biggest losers on the list, as Caicedo comes in second.

The Ecuadorian midfielder was also linked with a move to Liverpool but chose London instead.

The defensive midfielder has made 35 appearances for the Blues this season but has largely failed to live up to his huge price tag. He is currently valued at €80 million.

As noted by The Chelsea Chronicle, Caicedo admitted that he struggled when he first joined the club.

Marcus Rashford - down €10 million

In the latest rankings, the Man United winger has seen his value drop to €60 million.

Rashford has scored just seven goals in 34 appearances for the Red Devils, but his lifestyle away from the field has more headlines than his performances on it.

The Englishman drew the ire of the club when he went out drinking in Belfast before an FA Cup game recently and was again out ahead of the upcoming tie against Liverpool.

Rashford has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, and the French club could get him cheaper thanks to his market value drop.

Miguel Almiron - down €10 million

In fourth, also with a drop of €10 million, is Newcastle United’s Almiron.

The Paraguayan winger has scored just five goals in 39 appearances for the Magpies and has seen his value drop to €20 million.

Almiron was recently linked with a move away from the club, but Saudi Pro League side Al-Shabab could not reach a deal with Newcastle. The Guardian reported that the EPL side wanted €30 million for the player.

The rest of the top ten are as follows:
