One of the things that I most like to do is watching football games on television, exploring every corner of the planet in search of young promises. I love discovering young pearls of this sport that dazzle me and fill my eye, bet on them and see how they become the mega stars of the future. This is something that really thrills me and I consider myself a sort of scout for young talents. I have had many successes in this internal game that I have with myself, as well as monumental failures. At the beginning of each season I elaborate a report of the sub-23 players that despite being a little unknown, I think they will explode and at the end of the season they will be on everyone's lips. Today I present the first part with the first 5 players I chose.
Age: 21 years.
Team: Wolverhampton Wanderers (ENG).
I followed this boy a long time ago and this will be the year of his definitive explosion. With Porto he showed us what he can do, but his career has stalled. However, since joining with Wolverhampton last season he proved the kind of player he will be. Owner of a great touch of the ball and a super shot, is the master and owner of the Wolves midfield. They dominated the last campaign in the Championship and this season I bet for them to be the big surprise of the Premier, with Rúben Neves as team commander.
Age: 20 years.
Country: United States.
Team: Borussia Dortmund (GER).
The new "Captain America" is ready to take the reins of Dortmund. This American boy of Croatian origin has all the ingredients to be one of the best players of the next decade. Technique, speed, overflow and definition are just some of the things he boasted in the preseason. Now after the departure of Aubameyang of the team, I think that Pulisic moved Reus to a definitive second plane and will become the great reference of Dortmund this season.
Age: 20 years.
Team: FC Internazionale (ITA).
After breaking it all in the Superliga Argentina, finally Lautaro took the leap to Europe at the hands of Inter. I have no doubt that in his first season he will score a good amount of goals in the Serie A, because this guy has all the qualities to succeed in Europe.
Age: 21 years.
Team: Atlético Madrid (SPA).
After a great season at Villarreal, Rodri has all the roles to be a starter in the midfield of the Simeone team. Rodri is the closest thing there is in Spain to Sergio Busquets, he has the same profile of the game. His great job is to be the substitute for Gabi, emblem of the institution that left the team this season. But I am sure that Rodri will achieve it and will give him a plus of class and touch Atlético de Madrid that will be of great help.
Age: 18 years
Team: Fulham (ENG).
This boy has been cataloged as the "new Bale" and has shown that he has great qualities. His devilish speed has made him one of the greatest promises in the world. Despite originally being left-back, he has exploited his skills playing more forward in the field. In addition, he has a good scoring share, last season in the Championship was one of the top scorers of the tournament. This season with Fulham again in the Premiership will have a preponderant role on his team and he craves one of the revelation players.
Keep an eye on these guys, believe me they'll be out this season and they're destined to be the cracks of the future. And when each of them is in the best clubs in the world being key pieces, remember that they met them at the hand of their humble servant, @thedreamteam.
