Teenagers who made big money moves!

With another teenager making a big money move in Europe this week we take a look at a number of teenagers who have followed similar big money paths.

Anthony Martial



The former Monaco teenager had only one full season in the first team before gaining attention across europe. In the 2015 transfer window the teenager put pen to paper in a £61.6million pound deal that would take him to Manchester United. The fee included a upfront payment of £36 million with the rest being added bonuses.

The England international also made his big money transfer at the beginning of last season. Manchester United paid Southamptom a whopping £31 million pounds for the teen who also had one full first team season under his belt.

The Brazilian sensation was subject to numerous offers including Machester United. Eventually the he decided to join Paris Saint Geramin in a £28 million deal. He has only begun to find his feet and settle down in the past season

Wayne Rooney


It might come as a surprise to have Rooney on this list in 2016. However it lays testament to how highly rated he was prior to making his £26 million move to Manchester from Everton. The England captain has most definitely justified the money spent on him in 2004.

Renato Sanches


The teenage hotshot only made his debut at the beginning of the season and has had the attention of major european clubs. It was announced that Bayern Munich had agreed a deal with Benifica with an initial payment of £27.5, the fee could rise to €80 million with bonuses making him the most expensive Portugues player to leave the domestic league, at the age of 18!
