Despite the spending power of Premiership clubs, it's been revealed that Atletico Madrid have made Sergio Aguero the highest paid U21 player in the world.

While Aguero's £200,000-a-week demands have stunned Chelsea and Manchester United, the insistence from IMG, his management company, doesn't seem so far-fetched when considering Aguero is currently on a salary of over £4 million at Atletico.

His current wages make Aguero the best paid U21 player in the world, says Futebol Finance, well ahead of Premiership starlets Theo Walcott (Arsenal) and Anderson (Manchester United).
