We're almost a third of the way through the 16/17 season and during that time Football Index has seen mass market growth. We've witnessed Rooney and Pogba break the £3 per future barrier, whilst Football Index CEO Adam Cole has revealed that preliminary discussions have begun with the gambling giant ‘Betfair' to incorporate the Football Index platform into their website.


3 Tips To Boost Your ROI On The Football Index

But, you're probably wondering how YOU can make money… Outside of the usual Buzz prospects there's three players I believe represent significant value for future return on investment.


Daniel Sturridge Currently priced at £1.13 per future Sturridge will not be content with warming the Liverpool bench forever; the January transfer window rumour mill has already begun churning stories about potential suitors for the England and Liverpool forward. Furthermore, even if Sturridge doesn't force a move away from Merseyside in January, Sadio Mane's absence for the 2017 African Cup of Nations will lead to increased opportunities for Sturridge in a team that will likely be heavily involved in the title race.


Ronaldo Currently priced at £1.72 per future many traders will overlook the Real Madrid talisman, especially after he put pen to paper on a new 5 year contract tying him to Madrid until 2021. However, after leading his club and country to Champions League and Euro 2016 glory, Ronaldo looks all but certain to pick up his fourth Ballon D'or award when the annual ceremony takes place on January 9th 2017. In 2016 Messi topped the Buzz leaderboard on the day he collected his 5th Ballon D'or, and scooped the Buzz again the following day. There's no doubt that Ronaldo, journalists and fellow professionals past and present will have plenty to say in the lead up to the 2017 Ballon D'or, and I fully expect a handful of Buzz awards to fall Ronaldo's way during the process. In addition it's likely that his price will rise, albeit temporarily, by ~15% to the £2.00 mark.


Griezmann Griezmann, currently priced at £1.37 per future, represents a trade with an eye to long term return on investment. Personally, I can't see him leaving Atlético Madrid in January. However, Griezmann has made less than subtle hints about his desire to link up at club level with compatriot Paul Pogba and it's therefore plausible to invest heavily on the basis that another long, protracted Manchester United transfer saga could be amidst us – leading to multiple Buzz wins and huge appreciation in the value of Griezmann futures.
