Ronaldinho is the only Brazilian present in the list. He is inarguably one of the greatest players in football history. He probably had got the best skill moves in his prime, even better than Neymar.
Van Nistelrooy is the only Real Madrid legend present in the list but his market value decreased from €41 million in 2005 to only €36 million the next year. But he was still one of the best strikers in the world.
Before Arsenal’s unexpected fall in 2010s, they held some legendary names that were feared by even many big clubs. Thierry Henry was one of the those names, regarded as the greatest Premier League striker of all time.
Samuel Eto’o is another Barcelona legend mentioned above and he was just 25 years old in 2006. You don’t see neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Lionel Messi because they were still in progress of becoming two of the greatest players in football history.
