What he’s doing at just 18 is pretty epic though for his age group. How does he stack up against other world class teen talents and what did they go for?
Ronaldo (real one) at 20 went for a world record after scoring a goal a game at PSV and then going. Then broke the world record again aged 21. CR7 didn’t have near the end product but went for a 1/3 of the world record. anelka went for about 2/3s of the world record aged 20 off 17 league goals. Mbape is averaging better than a goal a game in ligue 1 and the CL. Rashford was for a bit too so maybe that’s some perspective.
I think this kid looks better than Anelka for their respective ages but obviously good as R9. I think he’s out of our target range because of that. I mean this is a world where Lacazette is valued at 50million and isn’t as prolific as this kid who is going to grow to be better.
