Man Utd academy more successful than Arsenal, Chelsea – Real Madrid best as top 50 ranked
======================================
 Manchester United have a world renowned academy set-up which was catapulted into the spotlight after the success of the ‘Class of 92’. The achievements of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and co. blazed a trail for their successors, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford the latest high-profile graduates. According to a new study by CIES Football Observatory, 24 former Red Devils academy players are currently plying their trade in the top five European leagues – easily eclipsing United’s Premier League rivals. Arsenal are closest to the Old Trafford club with 17 while Tottenham (15) and Manchester City (14) are further back. Meanwhile, Liverpool and Chelsea are well behind when it comes to producing top-class talent with just 12 academy graduates from each club making the grade in the best divisions. However, all the English clubs are struggling in comparison to their European competitors with Spanish clubs taking three of the top four spots among the list of 50 most productive academies. Following the UEFA definition, a training club is a team where a player has stayed for at least three seasons between the ages of 15 and 21 – and it’s Real Madrid which lead the way. Los Blancos’ Castilla set-up has produced a whopping 36 players who are currently in the top five European leagues, but how does the rest of the top 50 shape up? 49 (Tied).
