Like it or not, the kids are taking over. A new age of footy is dawning upon us, as youngsters are gradually taking over the beautiful game. Long gone are the days where a squad is reliant on older veterans during clutch situations. More and more young talent are becoming the go-to players on squads, and almost every domestic league is littered with fine young prospects.
Although it is difficult to break into any first team at such a young age, we are seeing an epidemic in drastic proportions.
Big name clubs like Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Arsenal, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich are all seeing youngsters contribute. Such clubs are starting to really take notice of young talent, and snapping up players aged as young as 18 is not far fetched anymore.
Here I have compiled a list of players under the age of 23 who are certainly tipped for success this upcoming season.
