The dream of every teenager who is part of a soccer team's youth team is to be part of the first team. Reaching professional soccer is difficult and being a crucial piece in a soccer team is even more complicated. Very few players can fill that role.
The most extraordinary thing is that there are players under 20 years of age who occupy that role or enter as a fresh and key replacement for their teams. But which is the most expensive XI made up of U20 players?
Based on Transfermarkt data, the team would have a value of 521,000,000 euros. Gavi, valued at 60,000,000 euros and one of Barcelona's star players, is not part of the team. The team's most valuable player is worth more than Lionel Messi (60 million euros) and Cristiano Ronaldo (35 million euros).
