I am a 17 yr old player and i have ambitions and hope of being scouted by a major premier league club,i honestly think that i am capable as people who have seen me play football constantly compare me with Messi .I undersand that scouts could have picked me a long time ago but i never went outside and showcased my ability infront of them. Is it to late for me to accomplish this goal ....... if Yes how could i get scouts to see me play?
BY THE WAY I JUST TURNED 17 !

Not gonna lie, it can be a hit and miss as a person I know who has real talent didn't impress the scouts and he had his whole life set on it and it was pretty sad, I say keep at it but have a backup plan.

Try going to a Nike Academy trial. You have more chance there.

Best thing to do if you are deadset on being pro is go to grass roots football or look for a foreign scouting camps (America or similar), but nothing is guaranteed and especially you're too old for most scouts, join a Sunday league or very low league team, work your way up.

By footballing standards it is. You rarely hear of any pro that wasn't in an academy by 15 at the latest.

i think age is not really the factor as long you have the ability to progress and be a star there is nothing really to worry about .

Yeah if you're good enough you can still become pro.

I kinda know someone who's been scouted by several prem clubs. Link below.

Sadly, every scout and academy director out there disagrees with you.
