“As the end of the season approaches, many Premier League players will be thinking of the next steps in their career, whether that’s moving to a new club or signing a new contract. But with money tighter than normal following a season-and-a-half of empty stadiums, players might need to convince club owners that they are worth the money.
“One way they can do this is through statistics.
“It’s been well reported that Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne negotiated his huge new contract himself rather than using an agent. The Athletic called this a tectonic shift in how transfers are negotiated, and wrote that as part of the process, De Bruyne had data analysis firm AnalyticsFC produce a report to show how much he was worth to Manchester City.”
