News of a one-year extension of the contract linking Ben Brereton Diaz and Blackburn Rovers could not have come at a better time for the Chilean striker. The striker has had the best season of his career, with 22 goals in the league and four for the Chilean national team, and has made great growth in terms of market value.

This is indicated in the latest update made by Transfermarkt experts, which established a 60 percent increase in the rating of the attacker who acquired Chilean nationality in late 2020 and officially debuted for La Roja June 3 against Argentina, for the South American . Qualifying for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

In this way, Brereton Pass presents an evolution from 10 million euros on November 24, 2021, to 16 million on May 13, 2021. But the increase is even greater if we consider the path traveled since his first in the Chilean team. Big Ben increased from four to 16 million euros, with a variation of 400 percent.

As for the Chilean footballers, the latest standings mark a before and after, as it is the first time Blackburn Rovers striker tops the standings by nationality, after he moved Guillermo Maripán to second place (15 million euros), while Erick Pulgar and Paul. Díaz shares third place (7 million).

But Brereton also shines globally. He is 22nd in the ranking of strikers aged 23 and under, led by three prodigies: Kylian Mbappé PSG (€ 160m), Manchester City newcomer Erling Haaland (€ 150m) and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic (€ 85m).

Brereton also cites the € 1 million at Blackburn Rovers, far behind his escort, defender John Paul van Hecke (€ 5 million); and also appears in the top five in the English League, which is led by Fulham’s Serbian superstar Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Golden Generation of Retreat

Another aspect evidenced by Transfermarkt’s latest installments is the huge antenna decline of the Chilean team’s Golden Generation. Charles Aránguiz is only one of the two-time champions of America who remains in the top ten in the price of Chilean players, with an amount equivalent to five million euros.

Further the other precious stones in the crown shine. Alexis Sánchez, the biggest national trade player in history, with an estimated € 70m when he moved from Arsenal to Manchester United in 2018; today it only “costs” $ 3.5 million. Eduardo Vargas comes further down, and then Arturo Vidal and Eugenio Mena.
