Here’s a look at the ten most valuable young footballers on the planet – did anyone from your club make the list?
Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham) – €66.3m
A fine summer signing by Tottenham, Davinson Sanchez has settled in instantly in the Premier League to become first choice in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Still only 19, Christian Pulisic has already played 73 games for Borussia Dortmund and has 20 caps for the senior USA national team.
Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – €85.6m
A player in lethal form right now, 21-year-old Anthony Martial is a key part of this Manchester United side and looks set to make a big impact for France at next summer’s World Cup.
Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) – €92.5m
Banging the goals in right now for RB Leipzig, Timo Werner is the latest big talent coming out of German football.
Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) – €108.4m
Making a stunning start to life at Manchester City, it’s little surprise to see 20-year-old Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus high up on this list.
Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – €116.7m

Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona) – €120.4m
In fourth place is Ousmane Dembele, who despite being just 20 years of age is already the second most expensive transfer of all time, so it’s little surprise to see he is also among the most valuable young footballers in the world right now.
Leroy Sane (Manchester City) – €124.5m
In third is Manchester City starlet Leroy Sane, who has looked unplayable at times this season in a key role in Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side that already look destined for Premier League glory.
