Buying shares in the right player at the right time on Football Index can be immensely rewarding – and several players have seen their values rise significantly just since the start of the season.
Football Index is a real-money betting platform where you can buy and sell shares in footballers.
Traders could possibly win money every single day through Match Day and Media dividend payouts for players starring on the pitch or generating headlines off it, while further dividends are paid out on players included in the Opta-powered Football Index Team of the Month.
Kevin De Bruyne generated £0.62 per share in Match Day dividends for his owners over the past three months, while Lionel Messi won his owners £0.78 per share in Media Dividends over the same period, but both players provided even bigger returns through the rise of their share price.
Players you buy on Football Index can bring losses as well as gains, of course, as their form dips, they suffer injury, or they just fall out of favour. But here are the 10 players whose values have risen most since the day the 2020-21 Premier League started on September 12, making their owners a pretty penny along the way.
Rodriguez joined Everton from Real Madrid just before the start of the new season, but plenty of people were unsure about how much of an impact the Colombia international would make with a mid-ranked Premier League team.
The 29-year-old has well and truly answered his doubters, though, providing four goals and three assists in his first seven games in England, helping the Toffees into the top four of the early table and seeing his Football Index share price rise by more than 30% in the process.
Telles was still at Porto on September 12 but quickly saw his value shoot up following his move to Manchester United on transfer deadline day. Having been valued at £0.51 just a year ago, he is now priced at £1.87.
It had started to creep up even before his move to England was confirmed, as is often the case when traders look to capitalise on transfer gossip, but it has risen by 48% just since the start of the season, and with the Brazilian expected to be a regular for United, we reckon it’s likely to continue going up.
Continuing the theme of players’ share prices rising following transfers to the Premier League, Bale will be hoping his winner against Brighton, his first goal back at Spurs, will prove to be the kickstart his career has needed.
With plenty more games to come before the turn of the year and anything Bale does likely to generate column inches in that time, we recommend stocking up now before his price goes up even more.
Somehow, the rhetoric is that Liverpool are struggling. The talk surrounds their injury absentees and their defensive record rather than the fact that they’re once again top of the Premier League with only one, admittedly heavy, defeat in seven games.
But Football Index traders have clearly ignored the negativity to buy shares in Robertson, who has taken a greater share of set-piece duties this season and has registered a goal and a couple of assists already from left-back. His value has gone up 37% as a result.
Leicester City may be above Chelsea in the Premier League, but there is good reason why Chilwell is more attractive to Football Index traders having moved to a Champions League club.
He’s started the season well, too, and with age on his side and the potential certainly there for Chelsea to challenge for honours, there’s reason to believe he’s a good long-term hold.
We’re yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love Son, and anyone owning shares in him on Football Index since the start of the season will undoubtedly love him even more now on the back of eight goals and a couple of assists in his first seven games.
Long may Harry Kane continue to be his provider.
Cavani had been scoring at a scary rate for Paris Saint-Germain for seven years, but on September 12 he was a 33-year-old free agent, coming off the back of a season spent as back up to Mauro Icardi, and priced at only £0.62 on Football Index.
One move to Manchester United later, he’s now priced at £1.39, an increase of 124%. Just imagine if he starts scoring some goals…
Fati has officially been promoted to Barcelona’s first team this season and has already scored five goals, only three fewer than he managed in the entirety of 2019-20 for the Catalans.
Named La Liga Player of the Month for September and scoring his first El Clasico goal the following month, Fati’s hefty valuation of £6.37 is for good reason.
Robert Lewandowski scores goals. Loads of them. He has scored 10 in the Bundesliga already this season, becoming the first player to reach the milestone in five games. Five games!
His Football Index valuation has risen from £2.49 on September 12 to £3.57 as a result, an increase of more than 43%.
Completing a Bayern Munich top two, Match Day dividend banker Joshua Kimmich has not long had his position changed from defender to midfielder on Football Index, but it certainly hasn’t affected his efficiency.
He won his holders £0.58 per share in Match Day dividends between July 22 and October 22, putting him second to only Kevin De Bruyne, and that helps explain why his valuation has also risen from £5.95 on September 12 to £7.18, an increase of nearly 21%.
