Monaco Spend £17.5m on 16 Year Old

Recommended Posts

Monaco have paid Lyon £17.5m for 16-year-old striker Willem Geubbels.

Geubbels made two appearances in the French top flight last season and was the first player born in the 21st century to play in Ligue 1.

"The arrival of Willem Geubbels proves our ambition to develop the best talent in European football at our club," director Vadim Vasilyev told the club's official website.

"With patience and work we are sure he'll get to the top."

Really surprised Lyon let him go, but they are awash with young wide forwards but still.

17.5 million on a 16 year old ???        they sold mbappe for around 170 million.    in three years time if this kid proves to be a phenomenon.   Giant spending clubs such as madrid, psg, united ....... will come to buy and monaco can get a profit of more than 10 times they've spent ....
