English Premier League Be$t XI
With the transfer window very much all up on us, the immediacy of money and rumo(u)rs combined with a couple months of post-season reflection merit this imaginary team sheet.
What I tried to do was select the Premier League player in each position who most improved his transfer value this season. I tried to keep it real. For instance, Jan Vertonghen showed what a world-class defender he is, but it's hard to see him going anywhere, especially if Gareth Bale goes.
Also keep in mind that this is how I would value these guys if I were a manager, technical director or director of football over there and that no league makes more baffling personnel and financial decisions than the subject of this post.
OK, unleash the vultures.
