Messi, Van Dijk, Hazard: Whose market value has decreased the most in 2021?

Lionel Messi's market value has decreased in 2021...

Throughout the course of a year, a player's market value is at risk of decreasing.

Age is usually the key factor in this regard, although poor form out on the pitch or a prolonged spell on the sidelines can both play a significant role as well.

The year of 2021 has seen a high number of big-name players' values decrease, with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all featuring in the top 25.

There are also a few younger footballers on the list, most notably Joao Felix and Ansu Fati.

But which player's value has decreased the most since January 1st over on Transfermarkt? Well, you can find out the answer to that very question below.
