Most Valuable Under-21 Players (in millions)

Kylian Mbappe ($92.6 million)

The young French sensation has caught the eye of the football fraternity with a dazzling display this season for AS Monaco. He is certainly Europe’s hottest prospect now and is currently pursued by Real Madrid and PSG. His move to any of his admirers will see a gigantic flush in the transfer market.

 

Ousmane Dembele ($87.1)

Another French teenager, who has impressed the World with his dazzling feet and outstanding ball control, is one of World’s most talented footballers already. Dembele currently plies his trade for Borussia Dortmund but has been under FC Barcelona’s radar for quite some time. Dembele has also attracted interest from Real Madrid, but his move to Catalan giants seem to be more probable.

 

Marcus Rashford ($70.7)

Rashford marked his debut in a tremendous fashion last year and has come into his own in the latter half of the 2016/17 season after a poor first half. He is United’s prodigal son and one of the most sought after talents. Rashford has already earned his senior cap for England and is set to make Manchester United great again.

 

Christian Pulisic ($60.6)

The USA sensation has been a revelation this season for Borussia Dortmund. Adept in playing anywhere on the pitch, Pulisic has tremendous technical prowess paired with innate defensive abilities. He can deploy as a right-back or wing back at times. Pulisic has been monitored by Bayern for quite some time now, and a move to the Bavarian giants isn’t an improbable one.

 

Gabriel Jesus ($56.3)

Dubbed as the next ‘Ronaldo 9’, Jesus is certainly a delight when injury-free. Despite his short stature, Gabriel can work wonders with his feet and has already been a regular starter for the Selecao beside the talismanic Neymar. His move to City saw him perform admirably, but the greater part of the season was marred by injuries.

 

Renato Sanches ($45.4)

After a splendid Euro 2016, it was evident that Sanches would lure in big clubs and he did. He chose Bayern Munich over Chelsea and Arsenal speculation, but his career suddenly went downhill. Looked a bit leggy throughout the season, and warmed the bench a tad too often. However, with age by his side, he can certainly come up with the goods.

 

Mikel Oyarzabal ($40.8)

Mikel is a tricky winger who can also operate from the middle, and helped Real Sociedad to a respectable finish. The diminutive winger has an eye for goal and has performed admirably against the Spanish club giants. He could well make a move to Atletico Madrid in the future.

 

Gianluigi Donnarumma ($39.0)

The prodigal Italian has already been remarked as one of the best goalkeepers at present, and he is only going to get better. The tall and lanky goalkeeper is said to join Real Madrid, and his recent transfer saga has already boosted the speculation.

 

Franck Kessie ($32.3)

The robust central midfielder has joined AC Milan from Atalanta and has been one of the brightest young players in the Seria A this season. Kessie is a typical Italian midfielder with excellent technique and powerful long rangers. He is also capable of dribbling past players in tight spaces.

 

Wilfred Ndidi ($30.3)

Ndidi has grown in stature in every match he has played for Leicester City. Despite being his first season in England, Ndidi showed tremendous temperament and looked poised every time he featured for Leicester. He can certainly be the next Kante, and pundits have earmarked him to be better than Kante someday.
