    1. Takefusa Kubo




    Reminiscent of a young David Silva in terms of style of play. Plays for Tokyo FC at the moment.

    2. Rodrygo



    Can play on either wing. Plays for Santos at the moment.

    3. Pietro Pellegri



    Plays for Monaco FC at the moment.

    4. Myron Boadu



    Plays for Az Alkmaar at the moment.

    Kai Havertz. Granted to be great in the future.

    This guy looks great. No doubt he'll end up at Bayern though

    No point in mentioning Rodrygo. Real signed him 7 or 8 months ago.

    Kangin Lee (still 17 though, but made his debut recently against Getafe in the Copa del Rey).

    Zinho Vanheusden, 19. The biggest defensive talent I've seen in Belgium since Kompany I think. He's on loan at Standard Liege but owned by Inter. He had a bad injury 1.5 years ago, and Inter sent him to Belgium to regain fitness and get top flight games. They really believe in him at Inter. He'll be a full international soon.

    Kutucu just scored for Schalke v Bayern. Never seen him play before but that was a good goal.

    Erling Haaland, RB Salzburg. 18 y/o CF.

    Ole's project in Molde until he was sold before 2019 to RB Salzburg. Was scouted by MU/Juve etc before he went to Salzburg.

    Usually a club like Man Utd should not go and buy this age group unless the talent is evidently exceptional. And such talent quickly becomes highly sought-after and expensive.

    Usually players mature at 21-22 and you see a real potential as a man, and not as a kid. A good potential 21 years old can be easily groomed and reaches his peak at 26-27.

    In Soccernomics they said the best time for a club to sign a player is their early 20s since they should be able to contribute immediately but, have not reached their peak yet.

    Muppet station for next season.
    Hamed Junior Traore: Empoli. Bought by Fiorentina.
    Jean-Clair Todibo: Bought for next to nothing by Barcelona.
    We should have bought both of them.

    Started the season great, then got injured for some time? Would not mind giving him a shot.

    Sounds like Rayan Cherki (15) is a generational talent. I’ve heard lots of Lyon fans say he’s the best ever prospect from their academy. He’s an attacking midfielder playing well above his age group.
