Manchester United’s youth academy may not be as prolific as it once was in the ’90s, but recently, they have picked up a couple of youngsters that, financially, are very beneficial.
In a survey from Soccerex, United have been proved to be leading the way with TWO of the most expensive youngsters in the game today.
Last summer the club splashed out £30m for his services from Southampton, and after a disappointing first season at Old Trafford, he is still apparently with £18m.
Louis van Gaal followed that up by the capture of highly-rated PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Deapy in a £25m deal. Soccerex value him at slightly lower price of £28m.
However, the player worth the most is Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling. But judging by the numbers, Manchester City may feel slightly aggrieved at having to being made to pay £50m for his services as he has been valued at just £35m.
