Young Colombian player Eder Alvarez Balanta is a prototype of a perfect defender in FM15 and a pillar of defence in River Plate, the Argentinian champion.


South America has long been renowned as a fertile ground for unearthing footballing talent, with Brazil and Argentina traditionally leading the way. However, Colombia has started to make waves in the talent pool, contributing some remarkable players to the global stage. Among these emerging stars, Eder Alvarez Balanta shines the brightest, representing a rare find in the defensive lineup.

Eder Alvarez Balanta: Colombia's Defensive Prodigy


Eder Alvarez Balanta

Eder Alvarez Balanta has captured attention as River Plate's stalwart central defender. Last season, his robust performances helped secure the Argentinian league title for the team. His skills transcended the club level, contributing to Colombia's journey to the FIFA World Cup, including appearances in the qualifiers and a match against Japan.

Rumours swirl around Balanta's future, with clubs like Barcelona showing interest due to his exceptional talent and technique.

A Versatile Journey to the Back Line


Balanta's football journey is as dynamic as his playstyle. Originally an attacking midfielder in Colombia, he adapted to different roles before finding his true calling. His versatility shone through in River's youth team, where he transitioned from defensive midfielder to left fullback. His breakthrough came in 2012 when he secured the central defender position, showcasing his talent by winning the U20 Copa Libertadores.

His ascent continued as he debuted for River's first team in 2013, quickly demonstrating his goal-scoring abilities by netting twice in his opening month.

A Style Fit for Barcelona


Balanta's propensity to surge forward and join the attack makes him a distinctive figure on the pitch. This attribute, coupled with his dribbling prowess, aligns with Barcelona's philosophy of defenders who contribute to offensive plays and retain possession.

Despite considerable interest from various clubs like Barcelona, Valencia, West Ham, and Inter, River Plate remains steadfast in retaining their jewel. Balanta's release clause stands at a formidable 25 million euros.

Born to Defend


Now firmly established as a central defender, Balanta exhibits a blend of aggression and tactical pressure that rarely incurs fouls. While not the tallest, his aerial prowess is noteworthy, particularly during offensive set-pieces. His speed and marking ability only further his reputation as an exceptional young defender poised to join the ranks of the world's most prestigious clubs.
From Football Manager to the Field

Balanta's potential was no secret to players of Football Manager 2014, where he was one of only three players with a potential ability of -10, alongside Paul Pogba and Marquinhos. His projected trajectory continues in Football Manager 2015, where he is expected to be among the elite wonderkids.

Conclusion


The story of Eder Alvarez Balanta is a testament to the evolving landscape of South American football, where Colombia is emerging as a powerhouse of talent. Balanta's journey from a multi-faceted midfielder to a commanding central defender epitomizes the blend of skill and adaptability that marks the region's players. As the world of football continues to watch, Balanta stands as a beacon of Colombia's growing influence, with a career trajectory that promises to be as impactful in reality as it is in the virtual realm of Football Manager.
