The leading sports economic magazine futbolfinance.com declared that Brazilian and AC Milan player Alexandre Pato is the most valuable young player in terms of economics.

The following was based on a series of studies of young players, which include age, match statistics, position as well as value of previous transfers.

The Portuguese magazine estimated that any team interested in purchasing the player from AC Milan would have to pay between €25 to €40 million. My estimate in US Dollars would be approximately between $36 to $57 million.

The following is a list of those of the first 10 in the list that was published by futebolfinance.com

1. Alexandre Pato: age 21 AC Milan

2. Mario Balotelli: age 20, Manchester City
