The most expensive starting 11 in LaLiga: 5 Madrid, 5 Barça, 1 Atleti
Valued at 665 million euros, this dream team doesn't even include Bale, Neymar, Benzema or Griezmann, although they all find a place on the bench.
By taking the current values associated with the players plying their trade in the Spanish league, thanks to the website Transfermarkt, we have been able to see the most expensive starting side that could be assembled in LaLiga. With a value of 665 million euros it is made up of players from the top three teams in the table - split across them 305M€ Real Madrid, 335M€ Barcelona and 25M€ Atlético. Interestingly, the "dream teams" of the Bundesliga, Premier League and Serie A have a lower combined value.
Jan Oblak (25 M€); Jordi Alba (35 M€), Gerard Piqué (40 M€), Sergio Ramos (40 M€), Daniel Carvajal (25 M€); Sergio Busquets (50 M€), Luka Modric (50 M€); James Rodríguez (80 M€), Cristiano Ronaldo (110 M€), Lionel Messi (120 M€); Luis Suárez (90 M€).
Those that we'd probably have on the bench: Neymar (100 M€), Bale (80 M€), Benzema (60 M€), Griezmann (60 M€), Kroos (50 M€) and Koke (50 M€). Sub goalkeepers would be Marc-André ter Stegen (15 M€) and Keylor Navas (15 M€).
