Named the most expensive players of the “Urals”

Football club “Ural”, its players and coaching staff are now at the training camp in the “warm regions”, but football fans have something to talk about even during the holidays of the season. For example, on the transfer value of players from your favorite team.

At the beginning of the new year, a well-known source of information on transfer prices for players around the world – the Transfermarkt portal, updated data on many world championships and their participants. And the football club “Ural” from Yekaterinburg was no exception.

In collaboration with the authors of the popular site mobile concrete we will name the three most expensive players of FC Ural and compare them to the most valuable players in the entire Russian Premier League.

Ilya Pomazun – 1.80 million euros. The 26-year-old goalkeeper plays for Urals on loan, and his contract belongs to CSKA Moscow. However, it is this goalkeeper who should be considered one of the main characters in the miraculous transformation of the Yekaterinburg team from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan during the season. And the fact that now Russian football experts, doing predictions for Sportscall Ural one of the favorites to enter the Top 5 in the national championship and a real contender for the national cup victory, there is indisputable merit of Ilya and his incredible saves in the current campaign.

Silvie Begich – 1.80 million euros. The Croatian defender left Rubin for the Urals in September and hasn’t played so many matches in the current league to see him as a key player for the Sverdlovsk region side. Somewhere Begich was held back by injuries and somewhere by training decisions. Nevertheless, he remains one of the team’s most expensive players, and many associate the team’s continued progress in the season with the Croatian. Given that he is potentially one of the strongest centre-backs in the entire league.

Lazar Rangelovic – 2.50 million euros. But this Serbian legionnaire is an obvious reinforcement for the Urals. Having joined the Russian club around the same time as Begich, the attacking midfielder managed to bag three goals and four assists in the RPL for the new team. Thus, Lazar took part in a third of all goals scored by the Urals in the current championship.

The most expensive players in the entire Premier League

We named the three most expensive Urals players, and now it’s worth saying that none of them are even in the Top 30 most expensive players in the whole league.

Who is at the top of the list? It is not difficult to guess that the players of St. Petersburg “Zenith”, the champion of Russia for the past four years and the main favorite in the current championship, are at the top of the rankings.

Five Zenit players lead in terms of estimated transfer value. These are the Brazilians Malcom (24 million euros), Wendel (22 million), Claudinho (18 million) and Douglas Santos (16 million), as well as the Colombian Wilmar Barrios (20 million).

Experts consider Krasnodar goalkeeper Matvey Safonov and Dynamo Moscow midfielder Arsen Zakharyan to be the most expensive non-Zenit players in the Russian league, each estimated at 15 million euros.
