Talent equals Success. Or does it?

If you were wondering where that godawful music is coming from, it’s the soundtrack to the latest Lucas Moura highlights reel on YouTube that has Manchester United fans glued to the screen.

But unlike the immediately acquired knowledge that Basshunter was sent to this earth to poison our ears and, in severe cases, induce comas, it’s much more difficult to predict the impact young Lucas could have in Manchester.

He might look like the next big thing with his slaloming runs, fancy pirouettes and penchant for hitting a thriker, but is he worth the reported £35million it will cost to prise him from Sao Paulo? Considering Lucas is just 19, there’s plenty of time for him to fulfil his potential before the inevitable sale to Real Madrid, but the only honest answer to the question is that no-one really knows.

Football 365’s Matt Stanger presents us with an interesting analysis on the growing trend by English managers to pay inflated transfer fees on the latest teenage sensations.
