Kylian Mbappe, who joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain at the start of the season, became the most expensive teenager of all time at the start of the campaign.

Monaco will, however, reportedly only receive his £108 million (R1.81 billion) fee next season when the loan deal becomes permanent.

Second on the list is Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, who joined the Red Devils from Monaco for a reported fee of £54 million (R908 million) in 2015, followed by Lucas Moura, who signed for PSG for £36 million (R605 million) in 2013.

Luke Shaw is the fourth most expensive teenager of all time with his 2014 move from Southampton to United for a reported figure of £33.75 million (R568 million).

Former Argentina international Javier Saviola comes in at fifth place, after his 2001 transfer from River Plate to FC Barcelona for £32.31 million (R543 million) – a move that made him the world’s most expensive teenager at the time.

Seventh on the list is Renato Sanches’ £31.5 million (R530 million) switch from Benfica to Bayern Munich last season, which is a move that has not yet worked out for the Portuguese international, who is now on loan at Swansea City in the Premier League.

Gabriel Jesus signed for Manchester City for £28.8 million (R484 million) in 2017, which sees him come in at eighth in the standings, followed by Anderson’s 2007 transfer to United for £28.35 million (R477 million).

PSG defender Marquinhos is at 10th on the list with his 2013 transfer from Roma to the French giants for £28.26 million (R475 million).
