AC Milan forward Emil Roback has made English newspaper The Guardian’s list of the 60 best talents born in 2003.
Roback joined earlier in the summer from Hammarby, and as per MilanNews, the amount paid to bring him to the Rossoneri was €1.5m, a significant investment for a very young player who is highly rated.
Ibrahimovic – who trained with Roback at Hammarby during the spring – branded him ‘the future’ during a recent Instagram post.
The Guardian clearly also believe in the teenager’s talent as they have included him in the top 60 talents who were born in 2003, and are therefore 16 or 17 years of age.
Among the others included are Marcelo Flores of Arsenal, Alexander Robertson of Manchester City, Ilaix Moriba of Barcelona, Jamal Musiala of Bayern Munich and Takuhiro Nakai of Real Madrid.
Dimo Krastev of Fiorentina and Samuel Iling-Junior of Juventus are also on the list, as is Cesare Casadei of Inter.
