5 India U-17 stars who have been linked with moves to foreign clubs
The FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 brought the stars of tomorrow to India for the fans to relish and also had several scouts from clubs across the world visit the stadiums in search for future icons.
India may have lost all three games of theirs at the showpiece event but the individual performances of a few players attracted eyeballs of several scouts from some of Europe's top clubs.
Sportskeeda takes a look at the five India U-17 stars who were linked to moves abroad on the back of their stellar performances!
#1 Sanjeev Stalin
Sanjeev Stalin's performance at the U-17 World Cup, may not have made the headlines but it surely impressed the scouts present at the India games in New Delhi. Stalin's ability to swing in dangerous balls during dead ball situations impressed with the French scout Joseph Mohan, who analysed his performances and admitted that his talent and potential are fit for a venture in Europe.
Mohan is a part of Carmenta, an agency which has helped young talents sign lucrative contracts with German, French and Portuguese top-tier clubs. However, negotiations could not go into advanced stages due to the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) plans of fielding a combined U-17 and U-19 Squad as a 'resurrected' Indian Arrows team in the I-League.
