Wuilker Faríñez, Miguel Borja and Jaminton Campaz lead this ranking of the most expensive players in the first division in Colombia.
The BetPlay Dimayor 2020 League started last Thursday, January 23. Eight days were held to be played before managers decided to suspend it, as a precautionary measure for the global alert to the coronavirus pandemic.
Taking advantage of the no matches these days, it seems like a good time to review what the tournament has left so far. The last hiring market moved quite a bit, so it is interesting to review how each of the rosters were formed and highlight the most expensive players in Colombian football.
Based on the data collected and published by the prestigious economic entity ‘TRANSFERMARKT, we have developed the ‘top 10’. Generally speaking, Deportes Tolima is the team that contributes the most footballers (3). Atlético Junior and América de Cali also excel with two members each. However, it is Millonarios FC who has on his payroll the most expensive player in Colombian football today.
Speaking in proper names, the Venezuelan Wuilker Faríñez leads the ranking thanks to the 5 million euros in which his token has been valued. Behind him are the Cordoba Miguel Borja (4 million euros) and the smaqueño Jaminton Campaz (3.5 million euros), completing the podium.
If you look at nationalities, Colombians are the majority in this ranking of the most expensive players in Colombian football. Only two foreign footballers appear on the prestigious list, which has eight coffee growers. I’ll leave you with the full list to draw your own conclusions.
