We took some time to see who are the ultimate best 11 wonderkids in Football Manager 2015 that simply need to be signed in the game.
After running Football Manager 2015 few times on auto pilot, we compared the stats and the development progress of what we think are the best wonderkids in the game, and made our list of 11 best wonderkids that you should really consider buying.
These are not bargain signings (well some are), they will cost you money, but each and every of these players will develop to be a world class player at the later stages of the game.
Most of these young players are well known throughout the Football Manager community so don't expect any major surprises on the list.
Simone Scuffet - Udinese
From all the young goalkeepers in the game, Simone is the one every player should be looking to sign. Media compare him to the legendary Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, and rightly so. Simone develops to be the best goalkeeper in FM15. His starting price is £1.7M, but only problem is that Udinese are unwilling to sell him easily.
Eder Alvarez Balanta - River
Even thou he is over 20 years and technically doesn't qualify for the wonderkid status, it would be a crime not to list Eder on this list. Not only that he possesses great attributes at the start of the game, but he develops to be a world class defender in the future. Plus, you can get this gem of a player for measly £5M at the start of the game.
Maximilian Meyer - FC Schalke 04
The jewel of the German football in FM15 has to be Max Meyer. Versatile midfielder is comfortable on both sides of the pitch, but performs best in the Attacking Midfielder role. He has a minimum fee release close at Schalke of £15M, honestly a bargain price for such a player. In every season he manages to have an unbelievable average rating of 7.5! Truly a constant performer.
Raheem Sterling - Liverpool
His dribbling, passing, technique and acceleration have all received much deserved boosts in FM15 and he can now play as the number ten as well as on either wing. These improvements have seen Liverpool become far more reluctant to sell the youngster so unless you’ve got plenty of money to spare this transfer could prove tricky. If you get the chance, buy him!
Memphis Depay - PSV
Depay was involved in one of those “will he, won’t he?” sagas over the transfer window but stayed with PSV at the end. His starting attributes in FM15 from physical to technical are simply to die for. Cough up around £14-£18 million to PSV and put him on the left hand side, then just watch the goals fly in. Absolute must buy left winger in the game.
Mateo Kovacic - Inter
Thought to be the next Luka Modric, Kovacic has the potential ability to surpass his national teammate in FM15. Great starting attributes, with a great adaptability stat, Kovacic immediately becomes a player who will carry your team to success. He is the perfect balance of hard work and technique and would make a brilliant playmaker for any team. The problem is that Inter think so too, it’s going to be tough to persuade them to sell.
Gabriel Barbosa - Santos
After seeing how much money they got for Neymar Santos are clearly trying to do the same with their latest star, Gabriel Barbosa. The young striker will turn 18 just a month into the game but he already has the attributes to be a wonderful poacher. However he’s under contract until 2019, Santos only own 60% of him, there is an option to extend his contract to 2021; oh and the release clause to domestic clubs is a cool £87 million, this one won’t be easy.
Youri Tielemans - Anderlecht
Only 17 years old, Youri has some wonderful attributes to start with, and with potential ability of -10, with the right guidance you could have a world class playmaker at your disposal. Only one more player has the -10 potential ability in the game, and he is up next.
Martin Odegaard - Stromsgodset
Well who did you expect to see with -10 potential ability? The Norwegian wonderkid was only added to the game after his father gave permission to the developers of the game, as he is not even old enough to be included in this years version of Football Manager. Buy him immediately at the start of the game, just do...
Adnan Januzaj - Man UTD
Perhaps he is a touch overrated by the SI scouts but once you put that aside Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj is a ridiculously talented player. The Belgian has plenty of pace and even more technique so it is hardly surprising that Manchester United are not willing to let him go. Keep an eye on him though and if he does become available then don’t think twice. If you manage him then allow him to play in his favourite position which is the number ten role.
Munir - Barcelona
Few may have heard of Munir El Haddadi before the start of this season but the latest product of the La Masia academy is the real deal. He is quick, excellent with the ball at his feet and the game reflects that. His release clause means that if you fancy taking a risk he can be signed for £10.25 million although you’ll have a hard job persuading him to leave the club that made him.
