5 Champions League Stars On The Come Up

The masters of the future are already here.

If there is something spectacular about soccer, it is that there are always new generations of players who end up growing and succeeding at the highest level. We will never run out of cracks.

There are only a few young players who manage to stand out on the big stages, and they are the ones who have everything to succeed, being considered as future stars.

In this post, we take a look at five players under the age of 20 in the current Champions League, whose future looks bright.

5. Jude Bellingham (19) - Borussia Dortmund

The young Englishman has quickly become one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga. Versatile and unpredictable, Bellingham has the ability to move the length and width of the field, offering good passing options in attack and decent defense when it comes to stealing the ball.

Not only will Bellingham be one of the best midfielders in the world in a few years, he is likely to feature in Qatar in November.

4. Eduardo Camavinga (19) - Real Madrid

The Frenchman arrived at Real Madrid at the age of 18 and immediately made a positive impact. All the comebacks of the "merengues" in the Champions League in 2021/22 came with Camavinga's entry from the bench, bringing intensity, irreverence, and creativity, especially in the last third of the pitch, although his defensive play is also positive.

Luka Modric (36) and Toni Kroos (32) will soon pass the baton to him in Madrid's starting eleven. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is already giving him a leading role in La Liga.

3. Ansu Fati (19) - FC Barcelona

Wearing the #10 shirt for Barcelona after Messi's departure is a big responsibility, and Ansu Fati took on the challenge because he is confident in his abilities.

Attacking from the left, Fati is feared to generate danger thanks to his speed and dribbling. He is a threat in front of goal, and doesn't need many chances to score.

In a short time, the youngster has also become an essential member of the Spanish national team. We will see him in Qatar.

2. Jamal Musiala (19) - Bayern Munich

In a star-studded powerhouse like Bayern Munich, Jamal Musiala has carved out a spot for himself to stand out among the big boys.

Musiala has it all: he beats opponents in 1-on-1s, throws accurate through balls, brings speed and dribbling, good mid-range finishing and can pop up from the wing or the middle.

Hansi Flick is counting on Musiala for the German national team, and we are sure to see him shine in Qatar.

1. Pedri (19) - FC Barcelona

Pedri's maturity is incredible. It gives the impression that the young man has been excelling at the highest level for a decade, even though he is only 19 years old.

The young Spaniard possesses infinite creativity when he has the ball at his feet. He does it all: he dribbles past multiple opponents with a feint, throws precise passes between the lines with perfect timing, plays fast one-touch football, and has a great sense of style.

For football lovers, Pedri is a player to sit back, watch and enjoy the beautiful game.

Honorable mentions: Florian Wirtz (B. Leverkusen), Gavi (FC Barcelona), Karim Adeyemi (Borussia Dortmund), Josko Gvardiol (RB Leipzig), Ryan Gravenberch (Bayern Munich), Hugo Ekitiké (PSG).
