Two Manchester City young stars ranked among Top Under-21 players in Europe

ESPN did a really interesting list of the top young talents in Europe, and two City players made it

Manchester City currently have some of the top young talent in Europe at the disposal of Pep Guardiola, and two of the best youth players in the team have been recognized for their potential to be great players.

ESPN’s Michael Cox made a list of the Top 21 players under the age of 21, and he was very smart to not put the names in any particular order. The list includes a few Premier League stars like Dele Alli, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. Two City players are on the list, and we’ve also added the comments from Cox about them.

Leroy Sané

“Very fast, tactically disciplined and able to play on either flank, Sané is ideal for Pep Guardiola. He can get behind defences to receive through balls and also dribble past opponents. With more final-third composure, he'll be a world beater.”

Gabriel Jesus

“A dynamic centre-forward capable of making clever runs, playing in teammates and shooting unexpectedly from tight angles, Gabriel seems perfect to play upfront in Pep Guardiola's system, to the extent that he could displace Sergio Agüero.”
