Big clubs have started to give more importance to young players

Posted on | August 19, 2010 | No Comments

Sami Khedira, Angel Di Maria, Pedro Leon or Ricardo Carvalho were the players that Mourinho wanted from the early days at Real Madrid. Besides them Mourinho managed to sign another star player, Germany’s Messi, Mesut Ozil.

The transfer sum was around €15millions and the player signed a six years contract. Another young player wanted by Mourinho is Lukaku from Anderlecht.

Manchester City, as usual us lately, added another two important acquisitions to the squad Mario Balotelli who came from Inter for €30 millions and James Milner who camed for the same price from Aston Villa.

On the other way City are trying to trim the squad by selling or loaning players like Robinho, Bellamy,Caicedo, Wright-Philips or Santa Cruz.

Also Galatasaray is close to sign Misimovic for €12 millions. Chelsea signed two Brazilians Ramirez from Benfica and Neymar from Santos.

So teams like Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madri, Barcelona but not only have started to put accent on young players with potential.

In the last couple of years many young talents were sold for a small amount of money or even for free and   who became important players for the new clubs. Some examples here are Giovani Dos Santos, Fabregas, Pique. Now the things have changed a little and players with potential are kept at the club.

Jose Mourinho, Guardiola, Ferguson, Wenger and may others have started to promote young players to the first team. But not only the big teams are using this strategy.

Besides the fact that they wont have to buy other players for those positions there is also the possibility of selling the eventual star at a higher price.

The promotion of young players to the first team can be called a transfer and it can prove to be profitable business over years.
