Wayne Rooney, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo were all teenage superstars, and made big-money moves before they turned 20.

But who are the world's most valuable teenagers today? Liverpool handed a debut to Jerome Sinclair in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night, and aged just 16 years and 6 days, the England under-17 international became the Reds youngest ever player.

Now, Sinclair's not one of the most valuable teens as yet, but, with almost four years to spare before he leaves his teenage years behind, he could one day feature on this list.

So, if your club were bid for the next big superstar today, which would be the priciest?
