The Top Ten Players To Drop In Value In 2019 Have Been Revealed
Philippe Coutinho has been named as the player who's value has dropped most during 2019.
The Brazil midfielder is currently on loan at Bayern Munich after a turbulent 18 months at Barcelona.
Transfermrkt have released which player's transfer value have dropped most and Coutinho's value has halved from €140 million to €70 million.
Check out the full list below.
It's a steep decline for the man who's still Barcelona's record signing.
The 27-year-old never settled in La Liga following his move from Liverpool but he's enjoying life in Germany.
He recently scored an audacious hat-trick to show there's still a quality player in him.
Three other Barcelona players feature on the list with Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti dropping in value.
Busquets and Rakitic are both in their 30's now so decline is inevitable while French defender Umtiti has been ravaged with injuries.
Real Madrid also have three players on the list, with Marcelo being second highest with a €50 million drop.
Gareth Bale hasn't endured a great year in the Spanish capital and he clocks in at sixth with his value being halved.
The Welshman has had his season blighted with off field controversy after his 'Wales. Golf. Madrid' banner.

He's been limited to 11 La Liga games this season and has contributed with two goals.
It's a far cry from the form that made him the most expensive player in the world back in 2013.
Wales national boss Ryan Giggs has recently discussed the 30-year-old not being fazed by criticism in Spain.
He still very much loves the game and playing it; loves winning, loves scoring goals, loves making goals,' Giggs told Sky Sports News.
'It's all noise you can't control and it's about blocking it out so if you don't hear it then it's not going to affect you.
'Gareth (Bale) is at one of the biggest clubs in the world, he's won four Champions Leagues, he's won everything so he can handle it (the criticism).'
Marco Asensio is an unfortunate case as the highly rated Spaniard is yet to play this season.
He ruptured his knee ligaments in preseason and it's unlikely he'll play at all this season.
'Los Blancos' also have young stars such as Rodrygo and Federico Valverde breaking through this season, meaning a return to the first team will be challenging for Asensio.
Edinson Cavani, Thomas Lemar and Nabil Fekir make up the rest of the list.
Who do you think has dropped in value most over the last 12 months?
