To consider the brightest futures of any club there are many factors to be considered like their current academy plans, their grassroots plans, the mentality of their head coach, actions of their board. Below we have ranked the clubs with the bright future ahead regarding their youth Players.
1. Real Madrid
Let’s start with the Youngest high potential prospects
Dubbed the next best thing after Neymar. He boasts of explosive speed, impeccable dribbling ability and decent shooting capabilities. Can play on either attacking flanks.
Vinicius Jnr (19)
This young lad needs no introduction. Last season he was one of the few stand out performers for real Madrid. Amazing dribbling capabilities, blistering speed and good vision. He lacks in the shooting area but he does makeup with his work rate. He is first 11 material already.
Takefusa Kubo (18)
Dubbed the Japanese Messi. his training videos with the Madrid first team as they prepare for the preseason friendlies just show he is destined for success. quick, great dribbling and ball control, vision and shooting are some of the attributes he boasts of. He is tipped to play for the Castilla mainly but he will appear for the first team occasionally.
Brahim Diaz (19)
Brahim can play on both flanks and he is adept at using both feet, excellent dribbler, this is a valuable skill within a Zidane system and will perhaps be more useful than Lucas Vazquez, simply due to versatility.
Martin Odegard (20)
Ødegaard, like many emerging youngsters, has been labelled as his country’s version of Lionel Messi and shares favouritism for his left foot with the Barcelona talisman, but he has always been more of a Luka Modrić or Andrés Iniesta type, operating in the centre of the pitch. His loan spell at Vitesse just showed him on road to become world-class.
The Ukranian goalkeeper had a sensational U20 World Cup with his team, beating South Korea in the final to lift the coveted trophy. The 20-year-old has impressed in the World Cup, making crucial and difficult saves throughout the tournament, most importantly in the final to keep the South Koreans at bay. For his heroic efforts, Lunin deservedly won the Golden Glove for the best goalkeeper in the tournament.
The Serbian striker has become one of Europe’s most coveted forwards and a look at his exploits for the Eagles makes it clear why. In 32 Bundesliga games in 2018/19, he scored 17 goals and produced six assists. Add in the 10 in 14 UEFA Europa League outings and you get the drift. However, those are just the raw statistics which do not tell the full story of just how brilliant the 21-year-old is.
F. Valverde (21)
Federico Valverde is a box-to-box midfielder who is involved in both the attacking and defensive phases of play. The Uruguayan’s biggest asset is his dribbling ability which allows him to find pockets of space to run into. Real Madrid does not currently have a midfielder with the Valverde skill set, making him a very useful asset to pick.
E. Militao (21)
Was named defender of the month in the Portuguese league five times in a row (September-January) and made his debut with Brazil. A tall, elegant and technically gifted centre-back, Militao may give the impression that he’s a veteran.
Reguilón has impressed on the left and has matched Marcelo’s form during Zinedine Zidane’s last season in charge (before resigning). Last season, the Spaniard has made an average of 1.5 interceptions per game, 0.7 more than Marcelo the previous season, has made 1.9 clearances this year compared to Marcelo’s 0.4 and has been better in the air, winning 0.9 of his aerial duels per game compared to just 0.2 from Marcelo.
Other players to make a significant impact in the future for Madrid includes:
Asensio, Ceballos, Vallejo, Odriozola, Mendy, Varane
When it comes to futures Madrid definitely has the most potential.
Barcelona boasts of high potential players in its ranked and not forgetting the la masia academy
some of the players are:
3. Manchester City
The Manchester City academy has released some significantly talented prospects. although some have left the club we can attribute their skill set to development at Manchester City. it is safe to assume we can expect more from the academy (yes Manchester united has a bigger academy but where are the results)
players from the city academy making good moves
and young players amoungst the current squad
4. Bayern Munich
The German giant has bought a lot of young talent. Most of them have significant potential. but the giant has to rely on buying their talent than developing it hence the low place.
Some of the prospects are:
5. Manchester United
In the Fergie era, Manchester united developed, great players. but post-Fergie it’s like the academy took a slump. Probably because of coaches not willing to gamble on these players. Some may argue that the team doesn’t do enough to accommodate young talent (Depay). But the main reason they are last placed is that their young players aint playing well enough to be compared to the above mentioned and also the academy isn’t producing headliner players like Sancho and also the board aint buying youngsters of the same calibre as Vinicius, Rodri, De Jong or Pavard.
But the academy has brought us Rashford. Definitely world-class potential there.
Some of the prospects in the team include
