The evolution of players has always been at the center of reproducing talents while some are already on their decline. However, some are just going to show what they are capable of while some are going are going to stake their claim in the world football just like how the likes of Erling Halland, Matthijs De Ligt and Kylian Mbappe is living their dream while playing for top clubs across Europe, as well as making wave in their national senior team.
Mbappe on the other hand will be looking to fill up the void left behind by his Brazilian colleague, Neymar, as Paris Saint Germain faced Barcelona in the famous Camp Nou turf as they bid for their quarter final ticket for a second time in a row at +175 odds against Barcelona.
More so, as the aforementioned talents are now living their dream, some young talent announced themselves to the world either by their goalscoring scoring feat, creativity or their ability to drag their team to success. But below are the top talents to watch for in the coming years. Although there are many players worth mentioning in the rank but the influence of the below stated young talents cannot be over emphasized.
Born on November 10, 2002, the 18-year-old French central midfielder is a generational talent who apart from been blessed with vision, pace and passing ability have the knack to score many goals while making them for other in his team and like the likes of Mbappe announced himself to the world while making Monaco shine, Cavaminga had equally did the same in just about a year ago and he had already made his France senior national team cap while scoring for France on is debut to lay more stake in years to come.
The news broke out in some months back that both Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid were trying to secure the signature of the Barcelona and Uruguay international defender in their rank while he was very young, but the soon to be 22-year-old defender is already proving his worth at the heart of Barcelona defense while making the weak Barcelona team looks more formidable in the absence of Gerard Pique.
Rodrygo Silva de Goes
The 20-year-old winger is a revelation among the best of the rest in the Real Madrid team that had produced and bought many stars for their success and domination throughout their history.
However, with Rodrygo while he was purchased from Santos with the tag of being the next Neymar, the young Brazilian is yet to live up to the hype though but he is certainly announcing himself whenever the opportunity arises for within the squad due to his limited game time within the rank. But being the youngest Brazilian to score UCL hattrick in a competition that had the El-Phenomena, Ronaldo and Neymar to contend with is not by a small feat.
The England international and Manchester United winger is worth to be among the best players in the nearer future as the 19-year-old winger is a proficient and prolific goal scorer on his days. Although he had rescued Manchester United from shackles of defeat on numerous occasions while he regularly scoops the goals for the Red Devil but his ineptitude off the character is causing much wreak-havoc to his brilliant talent.
Although the British born winger announced himself to the world just a little more than a year ago, he is fast rising among others to become an integral part of the United squad whenever trouble arises and he has earned his three lions call. However, the current form may be, the winger certainly has his future brighter than others.
Scooped for 35 million Euro in a league largely dominated by the buyer of Kulusevski, Juventus is a testament to the glorious talent possessed by the 20-year-old Sweden international. The attacking midfielder is best known for his technicality proficient, possession recycling, composure, vision and great passing ability among others.
Although he scarcely scored goals in Juventus team, but his vision and technical efficiency has been helping the team move from their worst start to life at the beginning of the season to their current form.
Having his international cap debut at just 19-year-old in November 2019 for the UEFA Euro qualifying games against Romania and Faroe Islands, Kulusevski is totally worth the hype and he is shining among the best in the Italian Serie-A already.
One of the best things that happened to Arsenal in recent season is the three lion starlet. The 20-year-old Saka has been the lynched pin of Arsenal’s creativity since the beginning of last season when he announced himself to the world under the guidance of Arsenal’s former boss Unai Emery and he had since transformed greatly under Mikael Arteta as one of the best player in the team even at his tender age.
Although Arsenal had since picked up from the worrisome start to life in the season but Saka’s absence in the team was a worrisome gesture as they suffered some defeat and struggled going forward but his inclusion in the starting line-up had the gunners blazing ever flying Leed United apart. Saka is the one for Arsenal’s future and his talent has already set him apart.
Another magnificent creator of the goal like his England counterpart, but the Dortmund attacker is not just creating the goals as he is equaling scoring them. Although he has been quiet for some time this campaign, his talent and technicality cannot be overemphasized as he’s touted to scoop the next “golden-boy” award but he will have others to contend with.
Timid and tender, the young Pedri has been Barcelona’s best player this campaign despite having Lionel Messi and co at his disposal.
The technical and the way he effortlessly made Barcelona work altogether cannot be understood so easily but Pedri has certainly cement his place in the heart of Barcelona midfield that forced the Bosnia midfielder, Pjanic to bench. Although he announced himself while playing for Las Palmas but his ability has been, there for all to see at Barcelona. He will certainly be among the best in the nearer future!
Considered by the manager that had managed Lonel Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Lahm, Neuer, Lewandoswski and many more as the best talent he had ever seen or managed.
The statement is a reference to the fact that Phil Foden will end up been the best thing in world football and quietly and consistently, the Manchester City prodigy had been turning up on a weekly basis for his club even carrying the star-like team on his shoulder when they were all struggling against the big foes. He is among the best already, why wait for the future!
Breaking the young record achievement and dragging the slumbering Barcelona prior to his injury in November, Ansu Fati had certainly made a mark in Spanish football while starting for the La Furia Roja and setting the tone at the senior level. He is destined for greatness and his humility will ensure that Lionel Messi passes the baton onto him to enforce the consistency keeps growing as he will be more mentored by the greatest player of all time.
