The new list of players with the most decline in market value, during the current season 2022-2023, included the name of Egyptian international star Mohamed Salah, while Belgian Romelu Lukaku topped it after his level declined significantly with his Italian team Inter Milan.
The famous website "transfermarkt", which specializes in player data and statistics, issued its new update on the players whose market value has declined the most, as the current season approaches the end.
Salah's name has not escaped the list, although his individual numbers look impressive, compared to what his team Liverpool, who are sixth in the Premier League, and were knocked out of other competitions early.
In the following lines, we highlight a list of the 10 players who have the most declining market value during the current season:
The Portuguese player had a difficult season from the start, as the dispute between him and Diego Simeone, his former coach at Atletico Madrid, ended with the player going out on loan to Chelsea in the last "Mercato".
João Félix on his future: “For now, I’m on loan here at Chelsea so I don’t know the future yet — but I’m here and I can see that it’s a big club with a big project”, tells @LondonBluePod 🚨🔵 #CFC

Felix participated with Chelsea in 9 matches in all competitions, in which he scored two goals, and was also sent off in his first match with the "Blues" against Crystal Palace.
Felix's value fell from 70 million euros to 50 million.
The Englishman arrived at Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021. In his second season with the team, his participation percentage dropped significantly.
Sancho made 14 Premier League appearances, most of them being pushed off the bench, affecting his market value, which fell by €20 million to settle at €55 million.
No one disagrees on the Egyptian star's value and importance at a shockingly declining Liverpool this season, as he said goodbye to the competition for all titles early.

However, Salah scored 21 goals and provided 11 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions, and it seems that it did not have much for Liverpool fans, as Salah's market value fell by 20 million euros, to settle at 70 million.
Dutch defender lost the confidence of former Tottenham coach Antonio Conte, forcing the player to leave for Villarreal, a rival in the Spanish "LaLiga" during the recent winter transfer market.
This shift did not benefit Dangoma much, as its market value fell from 50 million euros to 27 million.
Leicester City defender Soyuncu, 26, has become on the bench with the Foxes, having only played 4 games for the team since the start of the 2022-2023 season.

This modest tally made Soyunko the fifth player to decline in their market value, after losing 25 million, settling at just 15 million.
Despite playing most of Leicester City's games, the Belgian's market value has dropped significantly.
This is apparently due to his disappointing participation with Belgium at Qatar 2022, where he participated in all three matches, but as a substitute, and also bid farewell to the tournament from the first round, bringing his market value down to 30 million euros from 55.
One of Barcelona's mysteries is the young Spanish star, who has been looked at and prepared to be the rightful heir to Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.

However, Fati's form has dropped significantly, after suffering several injuries that kept him out of action for a long time, which contributed to a drop in his market value by 25 million euros, to only 35 from 60 million.
The France international is arguably the most on the list, who football fans may be convinced and believe in the reasons for their low market value.
Pogba moved from Manchester United to Juventus last summer on a free transfer, but a strong injury kept him out of the 'Old Lady' for a long time.
Even when he returned to action, and played two Serie A games that hit him back with injury, his market value is 20 million from 48.
He is the third Leicester City player to fall in market value, and the reason may be known when the team is indicated to be 17th in the Premier League, and one point away from the relegation position.
The 26-year-old Nigerian midfielder has his market value dropped to €28 million from €60 million.
The Belgian striker returned to Inter Milan in the summer of 2022 on loan, after a difficult season with Chelsea, a move in which Nerazzurri fans were hopeful.
But that joy quickly dissipated, after the player disappeared from action due to injury, making just 19 appearances in all competitions this season.

In parallel, his scoring contributions were very modest, scoring 5 goals and assisting one, so Lukaku's value fell by €30 million, to settle at just €40 million.
