In 2014, Sportingintelligence.com ran an article, 'Premier League Goals Worth £915k each last season ...' in which they estimated the financial value of a Premier League goal in financial terms.
The formula totalled all PL central funds and then divided this total by the number of goals scored during the 2013/14 season to gain the £915k per goal average.
Using Planet Football Data, I have applied the same formula for season 2020/21. PL Central Funds provided £2,536 million for the pleasure of watching 1024 goals throughout the whole season! This equates to the value of a goal being worth some £2,476,562 each.
Using last season's figure, Demarai Gray has already earned the club some £7,429,686 in prize money! Indeed Gray and Andros Townsend are already worth close to £10 million or about six times their joint transfer cost to the Blues! Let's hope Rondon can give the same value!
Furthermore, historically, Dixie Dean would have been worth nearly £150 million in today's money or the transfer fee required for an Mbappe or his ilk.
