As football has become more of a business its paramount for managers all over the world to nurture the future talents as much as to invest in the current squad. While some take longer to realize their own potential, others instantly hog the limelight in their teenage years. It may be some years down the line before you see some of them take on the mettle as the next Pirlo, Xavi, Messi or Ronaldo, today we here at Soccersouls decided to provide our readers with five young players who should not be sold by their respective clubs in the coming transfer window.
1. Adnan Januzaj:
The 19 year old took the Premier League by storm this season and in 23 appearances for Manchester United this season, he has scored 3 goals and grabbed an equal number of assists. Januzaj’s biggest strengths comes from his dynamic dribbling ability, his nonchalance at beating players for pace and getting past defenders on the turn in the blink of an eye. Statistically, the youngster has made 351 successful passes, with his average pass length being 16 meters.
Defensively, Januzaj might not be the most reliable but he wins most of his individual tackles having an accurate shot accuracy of 40%. The Belgium born youngster, who has impressed this season, had signed a five year contract with Manchester United in October. But reigning European Champions Bayern Munich are looking to tempt Januzaj into a move in the summer, claims The Daily Mail. David Moyes however shouldn’t be tempted by any fiscal ramification and must look to keep him at Old Trafford for years to come.
