Career history stats
Here is one fairly unknown talent from Sao Paulo, young and talented Lucas Evangelista Santana de Oliveira. He becomes so good once he develops, that we think comparisons with Ronaldinho are not over exaggerated.
Brazil is very well known for producing talented young players, and Lucas is no exception. He is equally strong in all attribute departments. He possesses great speed, combined with great technique, and is strong mentally. Awesome creative force for any team in Football Manager 2014.
Not only that he can play as an Attacking Midfielder, but he can easily adapt to playing at MC position, and even as a DMC in a role of a Deep Lying Playmaker. Additionally, with good retraining of positions on the training pitch, he can embrace any role on the left side, from defence to attacking positions.
Also once he develops, he becomes a set piece master. Just look at his attributes for Corners (16), Free Kick Taking (18), Long Throws (18), and Penalty Taking (17).
But it’s almost impossible to get him in any Premier division side, as he has no international caps, so it’s unlikely that his work permit will get granted. If you’re managing a club that has no foreign player restrictions, than we highly recommend that you consider transferring him to your club.
Leave him at Sao Paulo for few season to develop even more, and then swoop him from them for a bargain price of £2M or even less. A must buy Brazilian in FM 2014, even if you’re looking just to make an insane profit once you decide to sell him, as he is worth £41M in our save game.
