The Scout assesses player prices in 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League and their implications.

Man Utd

Manchester United stars Cristian Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes have both dropped £2.0m in price for the start of the season.

Ronaldo is the Red Devils' most expensive player coming in at £10.5m, which is £1.0m less than Manchester City’s new forward Erling Haaland.

The Portuguese was his side’s top-scoring player in 2021/22 Fantasy, amassing 159 points.

Ronaldo enjoyed a prolific end to the previous campaign, scoring nine of his 18 goals for the season in his final seven appearances.

Fernandes, meanwhile, costs £10.0m after a disappointing campaign.

The playmaker was the top-scoring player in 2020/21 Fantasy on 244 points but failed to live up to his £12.0m price tag last term.

He managed just 151 points, a total bettered by 23 other players. 

Man Utd player prices
Player Position Price
David De Gea GKP £5.0m
Luke Shaw DEF £5.0m
Alex Telles DEF £5.0m
Raphael Varane DEF £5.0m
Anthony Elanga MID £5.0m
Bruno Fernandes MID £10.0m
Fred MID £5.5m
Marcus Rashford MID £6.5m
Jadon Sancho MID £7.5m
Donny van de Beek MID £5.5m
Cristiano Ronaldo FWD £10.5m

Winger Jadon Sancho (£7.5m) has also dropped £2.0m in price this season and could emerge as the value target in Man Utd's attack under Erik ten Hag.

However, a mixed opening schedule is likely to temper early interest in the Red Devils.

They face three of last season’s top eight in the opening six Gameweeks.
