Ryan Gravenberch

Started by Vesper,

Ryan Gravenberch

We should be all over this lad. Looks to be the next possible teen superstar Dutch MF'er. Best U18 player I have ever posted on here IMHO.

Gravenberch made his Ajax debut v PSV on 23-09-2018 and became their youngest debutante ever at 16 years and 130 days.

Achievements:

ABN Amro Future Cup 2017 best player.

ABN Amro Future Cup 2018 winner with Ajax.

2018 UEFA European Under-17 Championship winner with Netherlands.

Description:

Ryan Gravenberch is considered to be one of the most talented youngsters of his generation in Europe. In 2017 he was selected as the best player of the very prestigious tournament ABN AMRO Future Cup – annual friendly international youth tournament which is organized by Ajax Amsterdam. Despite being only 16, he is already a regular at U19 level for Ajax and featured in this season’s UEFA Youth League, becoming the youngest ever scorer in the tournament. His older brother Danzell is also a footballer currently playing for Belgian side KSV Roeselare on loan from Reading.

Quotes:

“The classy central midfielder, who has a similar playing style to Paul Pogba, can be seen gliding through games with his height, strength and dribbling ability making him difficult to stop. He is also a fantastic passer and scores goals regularly with his driving runs into the box.”

Deffo 1 to keep tabs on ,tho Ajax might be still pissed with what happened here...Daishawn Redan: Ajax pressure forced me to make Chelsea move


https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/daishawn-redan-ajax-pressure-forced-me-to-make-chelsea-move-4236935

He has insane ball control ad dribbling skills. So advanced for his age. It is crazy that he is only 15 and 16 yo in all those videos. Easy to toss out Pogba comparisons but, shit, he is as close as I have seen at that age, and Pogba even now cannot dribble like that under extreme duress. His shooting looks very good, and will continue to improve. He also seems very mature and not at all a showboat/flash type.

I will be shocked if he isn.t a major star in 3 or so years, like de Jong and de Light.

BTW, I really like what I have seen of Redan as well.:cig:

de Jong perhaps, de Ligt is a CB so harder to compare, and I am on record that de Ligt will be the best CB on the planet in 3 to 4 years. In 6 years, when Gravenberch is 22, Pogba and Saúl Ñíguez (the 2 best CMF's on planet IMHO) will be over 30, so yes, I can see that happening (RG being best CMF on planet), unless de Jong is truly as good as I think he can be, but even he is 5 years older than Gravenberch, so eventually he slows down too (not from 9 or 10 more years) LOLOL, in 10 years RG will only be 26!

I would pay £40m (or more) RIGHT NOW for Gravenberch, sign him to a 7 year deal (with a performance-based tiered wage structure as incentive), and loan him back to Ajax for 2 years.

Summer of 2021 bring him to the Bridge and UNLEASH him as 19-20yo monster. Hell, he might be ready as a 18-19yo, as he is a already a big , strong lad at 16.

I would be a very aggressive DoF (or even better, owner). Players like Gravenberch, João Félix, de Ligt, Hakimi, Jovic or Werner, Dembele, etc etc. thats my template.

If I was Ratcliffe rich, say hello to Mbappe in that mix too. :D

(and THIS finally as well):

Potentially. I think Ajax knew how good de Jong and de Ligt could become but didnt expect such a fast trajectory for them. Could be same for this gut if he were to be a regular feature. Great club for talent though, hope they never change being so committed to young players. So many guys like Sneidjer, Van der Vaart, Ibrahimovic, Suarez, Huntelaar, Seedorf have all gone through Ajax at some point and all have had amazing careers, along with countless others. De Jong, De Ligt, Neres, Dolberg are all gonna go on to bigger things too in next few seasons.

Obviously the man himself too but I am talking guys who are more modern day.

Even then nobody will forget Cryuff because the effect he had on football as a whole is still huge in the modern day, your Peps, Bielsas, Sarris etc and the likes of Barcelona, Holland and Ajax as a whole all have his influence ingrained in their philosophies and traditions. Without Cryuff none of these guys or clubs would be as they are. Hes arguably one of the most important figures in modern footballing history. Not even just for his legacy as a player, as a manager.

LOOKS good. Very young tho and you know what that means. 5 or 6 loans then he loses faith and loses his instinct and we put him on the wood pile.

Watched 1 but Will watch rest of vids later tho.

I think he will be good enough to start almost full-time in 2 or less years. He gives me same tingles as Mbappe in 2016. Time will tell, but since I joined this board he is the best U18 I have posted.

He is 187cm and still growing too. I think he will top out at 191cm or so, same as Pogba. Watch his drive and dribbling, it's cray for a kid his age and height.:wub:
