Arsene Wenger is probably the master of the wonderkid, but on Football Manager, you can outshine him.
He may have brought through Fabregas, van Persie, Henry and many more, but FM16 has a plethora of wonderkids who you can develop to reach the dizzy heights of Thierry.
Football Manager 16 gives you a far greater risk of facing an injury crisis, so the quality of your backup is even more important than ever. If you’re going to need decent backup, why not sign some top class wonderkids to support your leading cast?
Whether Alexis Sanchez can perform as well as he often does on the game or not, you will need other members of the squad to develop the further you get into your save and these five wonderkids may well be the answer.
With so many of the stars from Football Manager 15 being just as talented again, you may well recognise some of these FIVE wonderkids…
Rugani develops into one of the complete defenders on the game in this version of Football Manager and he has the ability to become one of the best in the world.
Typically, Italy will produce some top class defenders and Rugani, despite a high price tag, is well worth the investment. By the third season you are likely to see this star with tackling and marking of 17, which is unquestionably sensational for a 23-year-old.
Zivkovic is most comfortable playing as an inside forward from the right-hand side. If you leave this Serbian star any longer than a few months before you make your move you will face stiff competition from Europe’s best clubs.
He is often a target for PSG, but can be signed for as little as £500k in the first summer of your save.
The Serb possesses expert dribbling and can beat his man at will with a flair rating of 16.
This goalkeeper is tipped to follow in the footsteps of Gianluigi Buffon and he certainly has the stats to live up to it.
His development can be inconsistent, but, if you can give him enough match time, Scuffet is the ideal long term replacement for Petr Cech at Arsenal.
Scuffet may be best to pick up cheaply early on and then move out on loan whilst Cech sees out the twilight years of his career.
With Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs rated poorly on the game, a trademark Brazilian full-back is an ideal signing for this Gunners’ squad.
Jorge has all the trademarks of a Marcelo-type player and would be ideal to overlap Alexis Sanchez’s narrow runs on the left flank.
The Brazilian should be available for less than a few million and will develop into one of the best.
Samper may have been isolated a bit at Barcelona, but he is still a Football Manager must-sign.
With the Gunners short of a deep lying midfielder of real class, Samper can be perfect at the base of Arsenal’s highly creative midfield and Samper can play an Alonso-style game from deep.
Pace can be an issue with Samper, but the first touch and passing are simply too good to ignore.
