Time to take a look at another potentially good wonderkid, Stephan El Shaarawy from A.C Milan. One of the most exposed wonderkids in the real world today. Pacey winger is surely one to keep on eye on.
First we’ll check his starting ability in FM13
Good. solid attributes needed for a promising winger. Stephan El Shaarawy is one of the most talented young players in the world today, and by the looks of his starting ability in FM13, the game creators would agree on that claim. Pace, Acceleration, Agility, Dribbling and Technique are among the most important attributes needed for a quality winger, and Stephan has got them all.
Scout report from Pantaleo Corvino from Barcelona:
Our Barcelona scout simply loves this kid, and his scout report is say just that. Four star recommendation with potential ability that could lead him to becoming a leading right winger in the future. Also, we can see that he can equally adapt to every position in the midfield, but it’s best to play him as a right winger. Furthermore, he’d be our 4th pick in Barcelona squad if transfer was made, which is a great info as well.
Estimated Cost – N/A A.C. Milan are unlikely to sell this young player. But be prepared for a large potential sum if you ever try to purchase this player. Amount over £20M is high likely.
Wage Demands - £95K p/m - £125K p/m

Player development in 8 years:
To be quite honest, we really expected that he’d develop much better than he did. But we’ll assume that this is because of AI. We truly believe you could train this player to be a world class, rather than the average one as shown in the picture above. But it’s just fair to say that his attributes needed for a great winger got even better.
Career stats through 8 years:
Well, not such great stats, but again, we’ll credit this to a fact that he was not trained buy us, but with an AI manager. Only thing noticeable here are the 2 transfers he made in his career, from A.C. Milan to Man Utd for £19.25M and then season later for an even bigger fee, from Man Utd to Inter for £28.5M.
Our verdict on Stephan El Shaarawy:
Great young player and just because he didn’t develop in our game it doesn’t mean you should write him of your transfer list. If you ever find yourself in a need of a pacey winger, than look no further, Stephan is your man. Only thing that might get you off is a high fee you’ll have to pay to A.C. Milan, as they are not prepared to sell this youngster for no less than £20M. OUR RATING:
