Anthony Martial Most Valuable U – 21 Player



Anthony Martial is worth £39.7million making the Manchester United forward the world’s most valuable player under 21, according to a new study.

Only two England players, Dele Alli and Marcus Rashford, appear in the Soccerex 20 U-21 Report by Prime Time Sport.

Tottenham ace Alli, outstanding for Mauricio Pochettino last season, has been valued at £28.8m in the study that take into account a player’s age, position, club, contract, market value perception, international caps, minutes played, goals, injuries and technical quality.

Rashford’s meteoric rise from teen hopeful to the England squad after his impressive arrival to the United first team make him worth £18.9m, a figure only likely to rise after his 11 league appearances.

Germans dominate the list, accounting for a quarter of the 20 under 21, with Leroy Sane second only to Martial.

Premier League fans are soon to see what the fuss is about with Sane, with Manchester City close to signing the Schalke winger after agreeing personal terms.

Euro 2016-winning Portuguese sensation and young player of the tournament Renato Sanches , 18, is third on the list valued at £29.1m.

Alli is fourth ahead of Martial’s France team-mate Kingsley Coman, of Bayern Munich, Swiss and Schalke striker Breel Donaldo Embolo and Rashford in seventh.

A third Schalke player, 20-year-old Max Meyer, Man City’s Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho and Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl round out the top 10.

Martial arrived at Old Trafford from Monaco in September last year for £36m, a fee that could rise to as much as £56m with add ons that include him winning the Ballon d’Or.
