Football’s future is bright!
It’s obviously a quite a confident claim. But when you look at the current youngsters in the world football, you can be quite sure about it.
Some of the names include Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Pedri, Alphonso Davies, Erling Haaland and more. The list can go on and in fact, such players are already football’s present.
The recent ranking by the CIES Football Observatory algorithm, shows that the football youngsters are dominating in the transfer market with their prices.
They are the most wanted men thanks to their mind-blowing skills, creativity, and indeed, a huge potential.
So let’s take a look at the list of the Top 10 most expensive football players, as per CIES.
Chelsea youngster arguably had a fantastic season finishing it with Champions League trophy and as well as the Player of the Season award at the club.
Mount only played two seasons in the Blues’ senior team and impressed with his performances every game he played.
After the departure of Frank Lampard, many thought that the 22-year-old midfielder would struggle under new coach Thomas Tuchel, but he proved them wrong by being a regular starter under the German.
Mount is currently on international duty with England, looking to win the upcoming Euro 2020.
One of the most promising youngsters, didn’t have the best season at his career at Atletico Madrid this time, having scored just 10 goals in his 40 played games.
Felix was crowned Golden Boy after his breakthrough year in 2019 and his form attracted the attention of many of Europe’s elite clubs, including Manchester City.
However, he ultimately signed for Atletico Madrid after the Rojiblancos smashed their club transfer record to sign him: €126 million.
And pretty much his market value didn’t change that much.
The 21-year-old was in a winning campaign with Atletico, as they won the La Liga title this season.
Davies recoded another successful season at Bayern Munich, having won the Bundesliga and the German Super Cup.
Last season was definitely one of the best’s at the Canadian’s career, as he won the sextuple, all the possible titles, with Bayern.
And of course, Davies himself had a huge impact in that. He’s considered as one of the fastest players in football right now and is the best left-back in the world.
