Jesús Manuel 'Tecatito" Corona is the highest valued player among all the players from the Primeira Liga, according to the most recent update of the specialized German website Transfermarkt. The Mexican emigrated to Portugal in 2015, after leaving the Netherlands and is now considered the most important value in the Lusitanic league, economically speaking.
The midfielder born in Hermosillo, Sonora is currently valued in $35.7 million, which sets him above many other very talented players like Spaniard left-back Alejandro Grimaldo from Benfica SL, who occupies the second position with a value of $33.3 million. Finally, the Uruguayan forward Darwin Chávez completes the podium with an estimated value of $29.7 million
Being also used as right-back when coach Sergio Conceição -an eminence in Portuguese football- needed, Jesús Manuel Corona has not only showed great skills but also a massive capacity to adapt himself to anything that the team from Oporto needed and it is that what made him earn the respect of such fiercy fans like the ones from Porto.
The 28-year-old Mexican player who started his professional career back in 2010 playing for the Monterrey Rayados has also impressed with his constant development and growth since his arrival in Europe -particuarly in Portugal- and now his value on the market speaks for itself.
Tecatito and his statistics:
In the present campaign, José Manuel Corona has scored three goals and has on his personal count ten assists, while his team occupies the second position of the Primeira Liga behind rivals Sporting CP. Also, 'Tecatito' and his team are preparing to play against Juventus in the second leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League, where the Dragoes hold an advantage of two to one.
