Thanks to the astronomical $100 million+ valuation of tried and tested soccer players, many clubs opt for a cheaper albeit riskier approach to recruiting. Instead of buying established players, they put their bet on budding soccer stars, hoping they would fulfill their potential and become a force to be reckoned with. The likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Manchester City have had a lot of success with this policy, pushing others to follow suit.
With demands of promising teenagers at an all-time high, the players’ market valuation has also reached record levels. On that note, let us take a quick look at the top five teenagers with the highest estimated price tag (via Transfermarkt).
#5 Mathys Tel (Bayern Munich) – €50 Million ($53.54 Million)
Mathys Tel Has Scored 6 Goals For Bayern Munich This Season
Jamal Musiala is not the only young soccer sensation in Bayern Munich’s ranks. Center-forward Mathys Tel, who is valued at €50 million ($53.54 million) by Transfermarkt, has also shown he has what it takes to be a regular first-team player.
The 18-year-old has featured quite frequently under coach Thomas Tuchel this season, and for good reason. The youngster has scored six times in just 472 minutes across 15 matches, scoring a goal every 72 minutes on average. If he keeps getting minutes, there is no telling where he would end up.
#4 Warren Zaire-Emery (Paris Saint-Germain) – €50 million ($53.54 million)
Warren Zaire Emery Has Claimed 5 Assists For PSG
Valued at an impressive €50 million ($53.54 million), Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) central midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery is the fourth name on the list. The 17-year-old, who joined PSG’s youth academy in 2014, has been receiving his fair share of opportunity at Parc des Princes this season. Coach Luis Enrique has deployed him in 13 games across competitions. And the midfielder has rewarded the Spaniard’s faith by chipping in with a brace and five assists.
