Boy that stirred quite of commotion with the headlines of his summer transfer to Catalonian giant Barcelona from his mother club Dinamo Zagreb, Alen Halilovic. Touted as the next Zvonimir Boban, legendary AC Milan player, and captain of Croatian national team while playing the game.
But honestly, Alen hasn’t got in him the leadership drive that Boban had, and is not a team player like Boban was. If we had to compare Alens’ game to anyone, it would be Robben. Stingy with the ball, he would rather finish an attacking move from impossible positions than include his teammates into play.
But nevertheless, if we look at his starting attributes, we can acknowledge that he truly is a talented player with solid technical attributes. He is probably the best rated young player regarding the Flair attribute (19), alongside with his Agility (17), and Dribbling (14), it does make him a dribbling maestro even at the start of FM14.
Once developed and at the age of 26, we can see some good development in the technical attributes, yet his mental and physical attributes remained fairly the same, which is due to small portions of first team football, and probably not good training regime.
With a potential ability of -9, Alen can develop into a World Class player easily, but with the right guidance from his manager.
Unfortunately, if you’re looking to sign him right at the start of the game, be prepared for some hard times, as Dinamo’s director Zdravko Mamic is not willing to let his prime gem so easily. A bid of £10M - £15M will be required to obtain services of this young Croat.
