Wonderkid of the week is a new addition to our blog and the honor to be reviewed first on our list is a Dinamo Zagreb Wonderkid, Mateo Kovacic. So we thought to give you a review of all the best Wonderkids in the game, the cheap ones and the expensive ones. This will include a description of player attributes, his preferred positions, favorite moves and a scout report from the best scout currently in the club we'r managing.
Okay so this weeks Wonderkid is Mateo Kovacic from Dinamo Zagreb.
BiographyMateo was born in Linz, May 6. 1994. Young midfielder started his football career at Linz football academy, and his debut for Dinamo first squad was in November 2010. He scored on his first official game in the league, which made him the youngest player who ever scored in the history of Croatian first division.
Player Overview and Transfer TipsWith a potential ability of nearly 190, this young star is truly one of the best Wonderkids in the game. Touted as the next Zvonimir Boban, former Croatia captain and a great midfield player who also played in his earlier career in Dinamo and later on went to A.C. Milan and became one of the legends of the club.
My advice to you is to buy this great midfield earlier in the game, because you can snatch him for a bargain price of €1.6M. At the winter break of season one his price goes up to €6.5M. Although the transfer wont happen immediately, because players under 18 are not allowed to transfer abroad clubs from Croatia, you'll save yourself some valuable transfer money.

Preferred Moves: Tries Killer Balls Often, Comes Deep To Get Ball and Plays One-Twos. These are the moves that all great midfielders have, including Iniesta, Xavi and Fabregas. Mateo is probably capable of learning new moves, but the ones he already posses are ideal for a great creative playmaker.
