Our next wonderkid to be reviewed is from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, Adam Maher. Attacking Midfielder already at the age of only 19, is showing signs of potential great things. Let’s see what can we expect from him in FM13.
First we’ll check his starting ability in FM13
He could easily fool us by looking at his starting attributes that he’s already a reputable football player. But yet he is only a teenager. Great Technical, Mental and Physical attributes at a young age, promises that this young gem, with a right training could become a world class player.
Scout report from Pantaleo Corvino from Barcelona:
His starting value in the game is fairly low, only £3.5M, but our scout from Barca, couldn’t get a estimated cost, as AZ Alkmaar are unwilling to sell their best young player. Furthermore, he’s considered to be a good signing, his Current Ability would make him a decent signing for Barca, but his Potential Ability could lead him to becoming a leading star in the future.
Estimated Cost – N/A AZ Alkmaar 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 £15M is highly like.
Wage Demands - £77K p/m - £100 p/m

Player development in 8 years:
So in 8 years in the game, Adam truly became on of the leading football stars. Great Technical attributes are what is needed for a great team playmaker and he’s got them all; Dribbling, First Touch, Passing and Technique, alongside with Creativity, Off The Ball and Teamwork.
Career stats through 8 years:
Solid career stats through 8 seasons. They’d probably be better if he was trained by a real person, rather than the AI. Nevertheless, he’s been a standard player in AZ and also in Tottenham, to where he made his transfer for £17M. Av Rating of 7, just says that he could perform even better when played by a real person.
Our verdict on Adam Maher:
If you are in a need of a great young playmaker for the future, then Adam should be your choice for sure. Not only that he’s got great attributes at the start of the game, but also as the game progresses, he develops in a leading star in Football Manager 2013. A definite must buy, if you are looking for a potential great playmaker for the future. OUR RATING:
