- Almada attracting attention from Europe
- Valued at $30 million
- Could be the subject of bidding war
WHAT HAPPENED? Thiago Almada has already racked up eight goal involvements in five MLS games, helping Atlanta United to the joint-highest goalscoring tally in the league. According to MLS.com, the Argentine is now being valued at $30 million and is drawing interest from top European clubs.
AND WHAT'S MORE: However, Atlanta United may ask clubs for a higher price as they're invested in keeping him through the summer and 2023 season as they try to win a title.
Almada could eventually break the record for an outbound MLS transfer fee that is currently held by Miguel Almiron at $26 million.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Almada is already attracting a lot of attention from European clubs with his start to the season and the obvious potential that he holds, but he will also strengthen his early MVP case with this run of form.
