Every club has that one TREASURED player; the super talented youngster who either came through the ranks or was bought from another club, who instantly lights up the field through his performances. Ones that their clubs just cannot afford to lose.
5. Christian Pulisic –Borussia Dortmund
Christian Pulisic was brought to the Westfalenstadion in the summer of 2015. After scoring 10 goals and setting up 8 others for the reserve team, he had to train with the senior squad by then coach Thomas Tuchel. His performances on the pitch have made some call him the “American Messi”.
Highly versatile, Pulisic can play on either wing or just behind the striker. His short frame allows him to dribble the ball at high speed making him a menace for any defender.
4. Leroy Sane –Manchester City
One of the first purchases of the Pep Guardiola revolution, Leroy Sane came to Manchester City in 2016 for £37m from Schalke 04. While he made a slow start to his Premier League career, he is now an integral part of the free-flowing City attack having found the back of the net 6 times and assisting 6 more goals this season.
Sane is a traditional winger, who provides genuine width on the pitch and has a knack for cutting in and taking shots at goal; his pace and trickery make him a nightmare for Premier League defenders.
The 21-year-old, Sane is expected to light up the blue side of Manchester for years to come.
3. Marco Asensio –Real Madrid
Marco Asensio came back to the club after successful loan stints at Mallorca Espanyol; he came to supplement the fearsome Madrid attack boasting of big names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Gareth Bale.
With a goal in the 2016/17 Champions League final against Juventus, the young Spaniard has shown he can perform on the big stage.
