what price can you put on such players ala Ronaldinho,gerrard,Shevchenko,del Piero,totti,ballack,RVN,Eto,drogba,kaka,Adriano etc and why?The market is strange as we know it and we don't basically go on what Chelsea would pay for a player,but instead what are they actually worth? :)

A players price is based on how good he is and how badly his team wants to keep him. Simple.
A player's price is based purely on how much another team is willing to pay for him. Supply and demand, and all that funky stuff, ya know.

Chelsea I'm afraid violates those rules.

Chelsea blows excessive amounts on average players I don't think we should be looking at them for an example. :)

I'm afraid you are wrong. According to the laws of demand and supply, the demand and the supply is determined by the overall market demand and supply. Chelsea demands these players just as much as other teams, however, the demand is still a reasonable figure. Chelsea can get away with buying players by paying just above the price the market demand results in, and instead they go ahead and pay millions more. That violates those rules.

It's like a stock. Suppose there's one trader out of a million who is willing to BID a price ten times that of the nearest trader. Sure, the BID price might go higher, but that will only be if he's buying a million or a crazy number of shares. In this case, there's only one player being demanded for each situation, and so the market effect is not as great . That is why the price paid by Chelsea for many of their players is not the true market price that would result from demand meeting supply.

Actually it is demand and supply, the clubs selling the players to Chelsea are asking for those prices, and Chelsea is willing to pay. There are no 2 identical players, so players have to be judge in an individual basis.

The clubs can ask for the moon, if somebody decides is worth for them to pay and they do , then it is supply and demand.

Prices are not decided by how much someone offers, but by how much is asked. The seller can ask for high amounts even if its only one person that can buy it, it becomes supply and demand.
