América will face Real Madrid on December 15th in a duel to see who will reach the World Club Cup final, after Las Águilas defeated South Korea's Jeonbuk 2-1 on Sunday.Although América is considered one of the richest teams in Mexican soccer, it will face the most valuable squad on the planet -- not only by marketing wealth, but also due to the value of each one of its players.This year Real Madrid’s squad amounts to around $818 million, according to Forbes and Transfer Market. América’s squad is placed as the third most expensive Mexican soccer squad, at $40 million, behind Tigre’s and Chivas who are worth $42 million and $40.5 million respectively.Madrid’s central defender, Sergio Ramos, is worth more than the entire América team. He is considered to be worth $42 million, not to mention Cristiano Ronaldo, who would cost $116 million and be three times as expensive as the Mexican team.In comparison, the most expensive América team is Silvio Romero at $3.6 million, followed by Carlos Darwin Quintero at $3.1 million and Oribe Peralta at $2.9 million.Despite the vast gap in value between Madrid and Las Águilas, the team from Coapa maintain hope of an upset.Value of Real Madrid1.
