Future profile (2020)
The Romanian players series continues with the best young prospect in the domestic league, right winger Gabriel Torje. He was quite precocious as he made his debut in the top flight at the age of 16 with FC Timisioara before moving to arch rivals Dinamo for a fairly big transfer fee for a domestic transfer. He is currently a regular member of the Romanian national team and a constant presence in the “transfer rumours” section of the newspapers as he seems to be wanted by a few German and Russian clubs.
In Football Manager 2011 Torje is a decent signing at the age of 20, Dinamo are willing to let him go right away for 3.6 million and I think it’s a small price to pay for a player that can slot right into most mid-table Premier League sides. However, his margin for improvement is not too big so he will never become more than a decent and reliable player. He can still be sold for a nice profit though so I think an investment in him at the start of the game would be beneficial.
