The best play footballer
@kjensekind_nl While at it add Neres, Onana, van De Beek,Mazraoui and Gravenberch
At this moment, in my opinion, Mbappe is among the top 5 players in the world, so definitely the best under 23 years footballer in the whole planet!
@sergiu-il Amazing Ajax academy, every year they produce new talents!
@pin-kod Their academy these past couple of years is simply unbelievable, they already have enough budget, but with the selling of De Jong for 75M, and potentially De Ligt, Onana, Ziyech, Neres they could make so much money that it would set them up for the next 10 years atleast.
Prices are simply insane in this market, for example Nakajima from Portimonense went to Al-Duhail for 35M.
Oh and while we're at young stars, let me add one that is one year older than 23, Bruno Fernandes, he's been simply carrying the Sporting CP team this season, what a fantastic midfielder, potentially going to a massive club this summer

SL BENFICA | João Félix, 19 years old FW
SL BENFICA | Rubén Dias, 21 years old CB
@sergiu-il Agree with every sentence you have written! Ajax has an amazing young and talented squad!
Alongside these players you have mentioned, I would like to add three more young talented players such as Donny van de Beek, Dani de Wit, and Kasper Dolberg! They are all 21 years old, and in my opinion, they will be amazing players!
Since Neymar went from Barca to PSG for 222 million everything goes crazy and unreal, in my opinion!
A lot of average players are selling for 30-40 million, and football becoming more and more just a money industry, and that is a sad fact for real football fans!
@edgarf98 Both players are great talent's, and both from the Benfica academy, so that fact is fantastic for the club and Portuguese football!
I'm always admiring clubs which promote to the first team players from the academy system!
So, in your opinion, which ten players under 23 years deserve to be on this list?
@pin-kod @EdgarF98 I have high hopes for Joao Félix, just hope the pressure doesn't get in his way since he's so young, let's not forget other talents that Benfica introduced last/this season and other stars
For example grimaldo, such a beastly LB, graduated in Barcelona arrived at Benfica for 1M, another foreign examples could be Zivkovic (have really high hopes for this kid) and Krovinovic.
Gedson Fernandes, Florentino Luis are academy graduates who are capable of becoming first teamers and maybe superstars.
Did anyone mention Miguel Almiron? He arrived at Newcastle and god damn I just get Santiago Munez flashbacks, the kid's just so good and has such a warrior spirit, could be one of the Ballon D'or nominees in a few years.
In my opinion we're assisting the birth of some superstars like Luka Jovic, Nicolas Pépé, Trent Alexander Arnold (first game back from injury and he nets 3 assists!), Lucas Torreira and Guendouzi, Rúben Neves and Diogo Jota, Federico Chiesa (son of legendary striker Enrico Chiesa), Aouar (he's just 20 and he plays with such elegance), Dani Olmo (is rumoured to be transfered to either Real or Barça though Real seems more likely), Hirving Lozano, Pavard, Malang Sarr, Diop, Todibo, Akanji, Hakimi, Diallo, Thiago Almada, Arthur (next xavi/iniesta for me), Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, Zaniolo, Cutrone, Donnaruma, Romagnoli, Caldara, De Sciglio, and so many more players but these are all from my memory.
@sergiu-il Amazing elaboration in this theme, well-done mate!
Portuguese clubs have an amazing football academy and every year they produce new talents!
Agree with you on every young Benfica player you have mentioned, such a great football potential Benfica has!
And I agree on your list of youngsters from all around the world, so many talented football players are out there!
And I think it's gonna be interesting if you create your own list,(top 10), of young world football stars under 23 years old, at this moment!
My opinion : TOP 10 U-23 in the world
- Kylian Mbappe (France)
- Benjamin Pavard (France)
- Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)
- Vinicius Junior (Brazil)
- Marcus Rashford (England)
- Achraf Hakimi (Morocco)
- Frenkie de Jong (Netherlands)
- Mathijs de Ligt (Netherlands)
- Alban Lafont (France)
- Thilo Kehrer (Germany)
Actually i have some favourite players, but they are already 23 y.o.
- Sergej Milinkovic Savic (Serbia)
- Krzysztof Piątek (Poland)
- Timo Werner (Germany)
- Leroy Sane (Germany)
- Nicolas Pepe (Ivory Coast)
- Anthony Martial (France)
- Marco Asensio (Spain)
- Presnel Kimpembe (France)
- Mario Hermoso (Spain)

@gilbert-gentania Donnarumma é top, pega tudo
Right now I would not know how to make a top 10. But surely I would make a midfield formed by De Jong and Arthur Melo . They are the future of FCB and of world football without a doubt.
We need to put De Jong and De Ligt into the top ten list
