Brazil's Campeonato Brasileiro Série A is home to over $1.2bn worth of talent
Brazil’s top league, the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, is home to over $1.2 billion worth of playing talent.
The top three clubs account for nearly 40% of the total player stock value in the league. Palmeiras has the highest squad value at $198m.
Brazilian players made up 11.2% of all international transfers in 2021, by far the largest nationality, according to data from FIFA. A recent change in governance of Brazilian clubs has opened the door to institutional ownership, with multiple new owners looking to profit from selling players.
