Babacar is the youngest player on this list at only 18 years old. Compared to George Weah from a young age, Babacar has not shied away from the pressure since joining Fiorentina, scoring on his debut for the club. In his next 21 appearances for the team however, Babacar has failed to score in any of them.
He has had only a limited amount of exposure to top flight coaching and the coaches at United would undoubtedly be able to work on some of the wrinkles in his game, as well as a chance to learn from such assured goal scorers such as Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen.
Quick and agile as well as being 6’3”, while still expected to grow a little more, Babacar is a powerful opponent who can barrel past defenders in a style reminiscent of Didier Drogba.
With his obvious talent, young age and high ceiling the asking price for Babacar will likely be around the £30 million mark, however for a player who could give eight years of service for United and then still be sold on for a profit this would be a fantastic opportunity for the Red Devils.
