FM24: 7 Players Who Could be the New CR7

Discover the brightest young talents in FM24 capable of emulating the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.


Every new edition of Football Manager has us asking the same question: who are the best new wonderkids? FM24 is no different, and players all over the world are looking for the best wonderkids to lead their club to glory on their new FM saves. This guide takes a look at players who look capable of following in the footsteps of one of the greatest players of all time: Cristiano Ronaldo.

What are we looking for?


FM24 Cristiano Ronaldo

With a simply incredible record of scoring goals throughout his career, the first thing we’re looking for is great finishing. Later in his career, Ronaldo was best known for his off-ball movement and anticipation, always popping up at the right place at the right time to provide the finish. However, in his early days, Ronaldo lit up the Premier League on the wing for Man U, using his incredible dribbling skills to embarrass opponents. So in addition to great movement and intelligence, we’ll be looking for good technical ability. He was also a very well-rounded striker, so we’ll need to consider that as we search for his heir.

Marcos Leonardo


FM24 Marcos Leonardo

This one feels like a bit of a no-brainer. Marcos Leonardo has been attracting a lot of attention for his performances for Santos, and looks like a serious goalscorer in FM24. A product of Santos’ fabled academy, I love his movement and his composure in front of goal, which makes him a talented inside forward from the left side. He also has good enough technique, dribbling and flair, all which can be developed to replicate Ronaldo. This makes him an ideal candidate to replicate Ronaldo’s role at Real Madrid, cutting inside from the wing to attack space left by Karim Benzema. The only downside to Leonardo’s game is his height, which leaves him lacking that ability to provide an aerial presence that Ronaldo could. That said, with the way he attacks space and how well he anticipates challenges, he could well rack up a serious tally of goals in the right system.

Benjamin Sesko


FM24 Benjamin Sesko

It’s hard to write something new about this goal-machine that hasn’t already been said. Basically, he’s the complete package. He’s athletic, he’s great in the air, he’s great with his feet, his movement is phenomenal, and his finishing is one of the very best in the game. What’s not to love? In my opinion, he almost perfectly represents Ronaldo’s time at Juventus: just a phenomenal all-round goalscorer, who does his best work in the penalty box. Build a team around him who will create chances, and Sesko will score by the hatful.

Elye Wahi


FM24 Elye Wahi

Wahi was a name that flew under the radar a little during the FM23 cycle, but rest assured we won’t be making that mistake again. Starting at Montpellier, Wahi is a fearsome goalscorer who uses his blistering pace and intelligent movement to find himself on the end of a chance. Like Sesko, he does his best work in the box, so I like him as a striker, but his pace and technique make him a worthy option as an inside forward.

Ben Doak


FM24 Ben Doak

A right-footed winger arriving at one of England’s biggest clubs from a small country with a rich footballing history? Ben Doak’s story sounds a little familiar, but so far, that’s where the similarities end. There’s plenty of time for Ben Doak to deliver on his undoubted promise, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Ronaldo comparisons come to fruition. His dribbling ability on the right wing is reminiscent of Ronaldo when he first came to Man U, and his eye for goal matches that. Despite his height, Doak lacks aerial ability, and his movement needs to develop further, but with the ball at his feet there’s plenty of reason to consider Doak able to follow in Ronaldo’s footsteps.

Nico Williams


FM24 Nico Williams

Easily the most costly option on this list, Nico Williams more than justifies his price tag. The Basque winger is still only 20, but it’s easy to see why he’s become key to everything that happens at Athletic Bilbao. Crucial to this is his phenomenal intelligence and anticipation, and his ability to find space from the inside left is second to none. Factor in his pace, finishing and dribbling ability, and it’s easy to compare him to late-00s Ronaldo: the one who earned a £80m move to Real Madrid. In addition, he’s decent in the air and, with training, could become a deadly striker as well as a winger.

Alejandro Garnacho


FM24 Alejandro Garnacho

When Ronaldo returned to Manchester under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it was hoped he’d bring back the excitement he embodied during his first stint at Old Trafford. Little did they know that they had a candidate to be his perfect successor already coming through their academy. Garnacho is an exciting and tricky winger, blessed with otherworldly pace and an ability to beat a defender unlike anyone else at the club. He reminds me so much of a young CR7, who arrived at Man U with stepovers and trickery in spades. Garnacho has that same unpredictability and flair and the potential to achieve just as much as Ronaldo.

Valentin Carboni


FM24 Valentin Carboni

Another who fits the bill of an incredibly skilful and tricky forward, Valentin Carboni, looks set to become a star in Italian football in the coming seasons. Capable of playing anywhere across the frontline, Carboni has the unbelievable flair, technique and agility that marked out Ronaldo’s early career at Man U. He has the same incredible potential, as well as the physical gifts and natural athleticism that gave Ronaldo his phenomenal longevity to play the game at the very highest level so late in his career. This is probably the option that requires the most development, but if you can unleash Carboni’s undoubted potential, you’ll have a truly generational player on your hands.


Conclusion


Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo entered the twilight of his truly sensational career, clubs all over the world have been looking for the next Ronaldo. His successor. The heir to the throne of European football. The picks I’ve made in this article are, in my opinion, the players best placed to follow in his footsteps. I hope you enjoy following the players I’ve listed and have great fun developing them into the world-class players they can be.
