Bayern Munich's Mario Götze, Thomas Müller Highest-Valued Bundesliga Players
German website Transfermarkt.de "will release its updated market-value ranking of Bundeliga players" on Monday, according to BILD. Bayern Munich players Mario Götze and Thomas Müller "have overtaken their teammate Franck Ribery" and are the "highest-valued players in the Bundesliga" with a market value of €45M ($58.6M) each. Transfermarkt.de Founder Matthias Seidel said, "If Götze wouldn't have gotten injured at the end of last season, he would have been the first German player to break the 50 million euro ($65.1M) mark." The player with the "biggest market-value increase is Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandoski" whose market value increased by €11M ($14.3M) to €39M ($50.8M) (BILD, 6/30).
