16-years-old Vinicius Junior tops the list after moving to Real Madrid for a staggering £39m. What makes the figure even more amazing is the fact that he’s played just 17 minutes of professional football in Brazil’s Serie A for Flamengo. However, he’s regarded as one of the best youth players in the world. He’s scored an impressive 19 goals in 22 games for the Brazilian U-17s, and was voted best player when Brazil won the Under-17 South American Championship recently. The transfer will only be completed in July 18 when the player turns 18, giving him more time to get first-team football under his belt, and we’re sure to be seeing more of him very soon.
