The top 50 FM18 wonderkids you need to know about right now

The full release of Football Manager 2018 is coming up thick and fast so it’s about time you brushed up on your FM18 wonderkid knowledge.

There’s nothing more satisfying than identifying a young hot prospect and developing him to one of the world’s best ever players, but of course that’s easier said than done.

When you first boot up the game it takes some time before you receive the first youth intake, which will then give you the chance to start scouting the globe for the newest wonderkids in world football. Before then, though, it’s worth knowing which current young players have the potential to grow in to elite or world class players.

Thankfully you don’t have to boot the game up and do all this research yourself. We’ve done that for you – with the help of Football Manager Blog – by identifying the top 50 young players aged between 15 and 20 who have the potential to become world class in FM18.

To help you out even further, we’ve listed each player’s estimated cost (some can be picked up for peanuts from the start) and their potential rating so you know just how good your young target can become with the right training and development.

So, make yourself familiar with this lot and then see how many of them you can develop in to world beaters…
