Any long time Football Manager players will know that investing in youth is the best way to go. Not only is there something amazing about watching a young squad dominate their league over a number of seasons, you can also make some serious money back on them if you choose to sell later on.
However, not everyone can afford to sign the likes of Florentino Luis or Gianluigi Donnarumma to their team. Sometimes you'll need to go for the cheaper, non-marquee signings to keep the books balanced. Cheaper doesn't mean that they're worse than the players who cost tens of millions though.
In fact, we've found some very cheap youth players who could improve your squad's chances of silverware in the present and future. All you need to do is give them a little attention and playing time and you'll have some undroppable players in your squad.
So if you're struggling to find the wonderkids you need because your budget doesn't allow it, then this list will help you build a squad of bargain buys who turn out to be beasts in a few years.
