How will a player exceed £10 in Value per future?
It’s not guaranteed that any player will exceed the £10 per share price, this post is predicting who, if anybody, has the best chance of achieving this.
There are multiple ways which share prices can be increased, as I will explain below.
Football Index grows exponentially
This one is fairly straightforward. As Football Index grows, more and more members will register, buying various players. As there are more active members buying players, the share prices will naturally increase.
Football Index is only 2 years old, they have lots of market growth ahead of them. Lots of members, you may see on Twitter, signed up at the very start of Football Index and have managed to capitalise on the growth of Football Index. It’s still in a growing, transitional period, although it would cost you more now to invest in players such as Messi, if the Football Index was to double in size again you would see the benefits in your portfolio.
Messi is currently £8.43 on Football Index and showing no signs of falling! He is the player closest to reaching that £10 mark, I believe it’s only the Media stopping him from achieving this.
Messi is currently near the end of his contract, rumours are stating that he is desperate to work with Pep Guardiola again! This has all the ingredients for a transfer window dominated by the future transfer of Messi to Man City. If Man City were to get Messi, media stories would be popping up for weeks, many traders will want to get these ‘easy dividends’ as Messi would be certain to have the Media Buzz payouts.
I think if Messi was to move to Man City, he would exceed £10 due to his Media Buzz potential.
Who I think will exceed £10
At present, I believe there only two players that could reach and exceed the £10 mark.
These are Lionel Messi & Neymar.
Lionel messi is only £1.50 away from reaching the golden milestone, which no player is yet to reach. He will dominate performance buzz due to his play style, he will also earn lots of media buzz points due to the fact his contract is due for renewal. This focus of attention on Messi will see his share price rise as traders want to get on him before he rises even further.
My only concern for Messi is his age, he’s currently 30, so probably only has around 1-2 years left at the ‘top price’ before traders cash out with caution. It’s inevitable that as he gets older, his share price will drop. Look at Iniesta, he’s 33 and trades at 60p.
This brings me onto Neymar.
He has just turned 25 and has commanded the highest fee paid for a footballer in the world.
This will certainly tick the media buzz box, as media outlets will always analyse his performances. If he plays well, ”Neymar proves his worth with hat trick”. If he plays poor ”Barcelona laugh all the way to the bank with Neymar Transfer money”. Media stories are always good for traders!
Barcelona saw the talent in Neymar, signing him from Santos and offering him a bumper wage to play for the Catalan giants. He had a great few seasons, winning the treble, the double, 3rd place in Ballon D’or. Internationally, he has scored 52 goals in 80 appearances, making him the 4th all time highest goalscorer… at the age of 25! He has it all!
Neymar has ambition of being the best player in the world, and it seemed that he couldn’t achieve this by playing in the same team as Lionel Messi. Neymar moved to PSG to fulfil his ambition.
Neymar is currently £6.15 on Football Index, but I believe it will be a few seasons before he reaches £10+. In fact, I think it will take until Messi starts to decline, as traders will then pour money into Neymar, who will undoubtedly be the best player once Messi and Ronaldo retire.
