Luke Shaw sits atop the list of the ten most expensive teenagers of all time [Video]
- July 1, 2014
When Manchester United completed the signing of Luke Shaw from Southampton, they made the left-back the most expensive teenager of all time.
Paying a transfer fee that will rise up to £31 million, Shaw’s move breaks the record PSG paid AS Roma for fellow defender Marquinhos.
In this list we see that United have a habit of paying large fees for teenagers, also featuring in moves for Wayne Rooney and Anderson, proving that success varies!
In fact, John Obi Mikel signed for Chelsea for £16m but part of that fee went to Man United because the Nigerian had agreed a deal initially with the Red Devils.
Chelsea also feature for the Romelu Lukaku deal, another relatively recent move with the club paying more than £18m for the big Belgian.
