"I was talking with a coach, Patrick Landru, who works with the Ajax academy’s youngest age groups, when he asked if he could take my writing pad for a moment. I handed it over, and he put down five names, then drew a bracket to their right. Outside the bracket, he wrote,“80 million euros.” The names represented five active “Ajax educated” players, as he called them, all of whom entered the academy as children, made it through without being sent away and emerged as world-class players".

I can't understand who are these 5 players.

Wesly Sneider - 27 million euros from Real Madrid

Ryan Babel - about 14 million from Liverpool

John Heitinga - about 10 million from Atletico Madrid

Thomas Vermaelen - 12 million from Arsenal

Who can be another, 5th player to get 80 million in the end?

Rafael Van Der Vaart, Nigel De Jong, Steven Pienaar were sold not for so big money.

Please help if you can.

P.S. Sorry for my english
