hypothetically, lets say every former youth team player returned to their parent club. Who would have the best team? well best XI.

and lets leave out the obvious barca.

This is gonna be hard, because I know people are going to argue about the inclusion of certain players for certain teams, Madrid comes to mind straight away.

Bayern have pretty much a good number of youth products, too. And Dortmund and Schalke, of course (Manuel Neuer and Mesut Özil are originally from Schalke for ex). Not to forget Leverkusen... Well, there are quite some German teams that would be amazing if their youth players wouldn't have gone abroad, like 1860, too.

River Plate:

Carrizo
?? - Demichellis - Musacchio - ??
Aimar - Mascherano - D'Alessandro
Lamela - Falcao - Higuain

Pretty respectable. If we include retired players it would be much more epic.

ajax is typically a favorite but at the moment the former stars (vdv, sneijder, de jong, seedorf) from the youth ranks are aged, and the young ones havent matured enough.

not enough coming into their prime like vertonghen and vermaelen eriksen.

So what about Falcao, who went to River's academy but actually played Pro before then in the Columbian second division?

I'm reluctant to count his 13 year old debut in Colombian 2nd division as going pro, though. Although strictly by the definition I gave I suppose it excludes him.

Maybe "2+ years at a club before turning 18"?

Yeah, sadly can't fill out the midfield with youth now, all below 18. Same reason with Abbiati, Gabriel just arrived and Amelia isn't from our youth department :/

What? Mata spent less than 3 years at Madrid and is an Oviedo product.

Silva is for Valencia.

Not sure why I put Silva. hmm

Real Madrid's youth team isn't the first youth team Arbeloa, Callejon, Negredo and Soldado's played for either.
