Daniel Ruiz is the player with the best price in the local league. After his return from Santos in Brazil, he has managed to adapt again to the functioning of the team led by Alberto Gamero, becoming a very important piece for its functioning. At 22 years old, he is valued at 4.50 million euros, according to the specialized portal Transfermarkt, making him the only player in the league worth over 4 million euros.
In addition to Ruiz, the other Millonarios players in the top 5 are: in position number 3 is goalkeeper Álvaro Montero, who has a price of 2.60 million euros. And in fourth place is defender Andrés Llinás, who renewed with the team until 2026 and has the same market value as Montero, 2.60 million euros.

Alberto Gamero surprised with his statements when he asked for an opportunity in the Colombian team for David Mackalister Silva, captain and reference of the current Colombian soccer champion.

“Cataño, I don’t know where Professor Lorenzo can see it, but today the hand he is giving us and the football he is playing is also to have a nice opportunity in the National Team,” said Gamero at a press conference after the match that Millonarios beat Atlético Nacional 1-0.
Daniel Cataño was the scorer of the goal with which the ambassadors beat the purslanes at the Nemesio Camacho El Campín stadium in Bogotá. The midfielder was not only the scorer, but also had an outstanding performance in the offensive zone, partnering with David Mackalister Silva, Leonardo Castro and Daniel Ruiz.
However, there was another player who wanted to be recognized by the Millonarios strategist taking advantage of the question: David Mackalister Silva. The captain of the capital team, at 36 years old and despite being the most outstanding in the recent titles, has never had the opportunity to wear the tricolor shirt. His career indicates that he played with Real Cartagena, Deportes Tolima and the ambassadors, accumulating more than 500 games, 73 goals and 44 assists.
“Not because I have Silva here, but Silva is a player who in Colombian football must have had his chance in the Colombian national team, as everyone has had, because in recent times, at least, he has always been like one one of the best in Colombian football. He should have been in the national team for a while.”
Finally, Alberto Gamero once again clarified that he has no problem releasing the players named to the national team and on the contrary it gives him great joy that this happens. In addition, he said that he will always work on the difficulties of his players so that they reach not only the national team, but also international football.
“Every day I tell them the difficulty that I see in them, I will try to correct it, for two reasons. The first: I know that everyone wants to go play abroad, everyone wants to go to Europe. And the other: everyone wants to play for the national team; So I am not one of those people who gets uncomfortable when a player is called, on the contrary, that for me is pleasant, it is joy.”
