There's a reason why leading clubs all around the world cough up millions for them.
Their talent,skill, finesse and hunger to succeed at such a tender age is enough to lure the world's elite to pay big bucks and they've now become an important jigsaw piece in the footballing puzzle.
In this article,we present to you the top five brightest prospects of the modern footballing era...
5. Jack Wilshere
At the age of 22, this promising English midfielder has the world at his feet and it appears as if he's been around for a quite a while now The way he handles the pressure of being the nucleus in the middle of the park, for club and country is absolutely commendable.
Pretty evidently, he hasn't been hyped without a reason. His calmness, grit, agility,and determination - topped up with his jaw-dropping range of passes - is the reason why the English fans won't miss Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard too much after they retire.
Even though he hasn't won silverware with Arsenal to date, given the talent he possesses, that situation can change anytime soon.
4. Thibaut Courtois
The supremely-talented Belgium international secured the switch of his life when Chelsea snapped him up from Genk in the summer of 2011.
However,the aftermath of the transfer hasn't gone according to plan for Courtois and he has been on loan at Atletico Madrid for two-and-a-half seasons - unsurprisingly establishing himself as an integral part of Diego Simeone's starting line-up.
It seems as if the Chelsea manager and fans are unaware of the talent they have in their team.The ageing Petr Cech has been the preferred choice of Jose Mourinho,a choice which could propel Courtois to seriously consider his future at a club where he has to play second fiddle.
3. Paul Pogba
Looking at the kind of player Pogba has evolved into ,it seems almost impossible that a veteran like Sir Alex Ferguson - who had been such an amazing manager when it comes to gifting the footballing world with the best young talent - let this youngster from France slip away.
Since Pogba left Manchester for Turin, he has never looked back and has just seamlessly climbed the ladder of success.A part of this success may be credited to United too as it appeared that all Pogba wanted to do after leaving his former club was show them what they were missing.
Looking at what United's current situation, one is compelled to wonder whether this was Ferguson's biggest mistake as United manager. The young French international is just what United miss: a tall, dominant and confident figure in the centre of the park who can just dissect defences at his own will accompanied by a knack of scoring crucial and dazzling goals.
If Pogba continues to progress as he is,eternal glory is well within the realm of possibility for him.
It does surprise you a bit when a club of Barcelona's stature pay a sum of €57 million for a young lad. However, in Neymar's case, there wasn't a shadow of a doubt whether or not every penny of that €57 million will bring them loads of success.
The youngster from Brazil is considered as the best striker ever to represent the Samba nation after the legendary Pèle. His quick feet and vision for goal - accompanied by some blistering speed - makes him a nightmare for defenders. He has already scored some unbelievable goals and at Barça, in the company of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta, it is just a matter of time before Neymar establishes himself as the best striker in the world.
1. Eden Hazard
Lately, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho publicly claimed that Hazard is the best young footballer in the world at the moment. I pretty much agree with his stance.
Hazard has been a pivotal part of the Chelsea and well as the Belgium national side, scoring goals and assisting his teammates too.His agility, determination and mind-boggling pace coupled with oodles of confidence make him look a class apart from everyone else.
He is arguably the best winger in the world after Cristiano Ronaldo at the moment, leading the cause of his team. At a great club like Chelsea and under an amazing manager like Mourinho, it is only a matter of time before Hazard stamps his authority on the footballing world.
