When he was promoted to the first team, Javier López generated many expectations among Chivas fans due to the sparks of talent he displayed, which led him to increase his value over the years, but in 2020 he was separated from the club due to indiscipline and now he’s looking for a new team. Here we tell you how much it cost and what could be its destination.
“Chofis” is a youth player from Chivas, so it did not have a real acquisition value, although debuting on the team immediately was valued at $ 356,800According to the specialized site Transfermarkt, this was in 2013 and until 2016 it maintained that value; later he began to stand out with the club and in the first tournament in which he scored three goals his value amounted to $ 1.1 million. The following months it increased until it reached $ 2.7 million in 2018, then the ups and downs came, since in 2019 it dropped to $ 2.3 million.
Even though Various media mention that Chivas had valued the player at $ 4 million before the indiscipline that caused his departure, Transfermarkt had it valued at $ 2.7 million, so there is a discrepancy of about 30%; However, whatever the value at which the rojiblancos wish to sell it, the truth is that what happened will inevitably make the team that acquires it seek to pay a price lower than its real value, because they will assume the risk of a possible new indiscipline.
