Lucas Piazon starting attributes

The above screenshot is taken from a new Football Manager game using patch 11.3.0. Lucas has some good attributes for a 17 year old, his strengths being dribbling, technique, flair and acceleration. However, the value lies in his potential ability. This kid has a lot of room to grow and I’ve heard many gamers rave about him. Below is a scouts rating from one of Arsenal’s best backroom staff.

Has the potential to be similar to Fabregas, he can’t be bad then. Also seen as a leading star for the future, Cagigao rates this wonderkid as a four star. Remember this report is based on the Arsenal team, so Lucas is been compared to Fabregas, Wilshere, Nasri and many more. Add a price tag of £3.6 million and this Brazilian wonderkid is irresistible. Now lets take a look at his attributes in 2018. The screenshot below is taken from my UEC game.

Now maybe some of you will see why I’ve held off on this profile. During my game, Lucas doesn’t reach his potential, in fact he falls a mile short. While the Brazilians understanding of the game is much improved, his physical and technical attributes leave much to be desired. I wouldn’t take much notice of this screenshot, and just see it as the midfielders worst case scenario. Lucas did however play some nice football in Russia after signing for Spartak Moscow. Below are the 17 year olds career stats.

My best buy rating – 8.8/10

On my Vuaxhall game, he has never left Sao Paulo and he’s currently 24 with worse stats than that :/ But then again I haven’t got the Brazilian leagues so that will have decreased his growth :) But I’m sure under the right management he could be a quality player!


I have had a similar experience with Lucas. I have signed him a couple of times for teams in the English Premiere League because of his excellent starting stats for a 17-year-old, combined with his reasonable price tag and my scouts raving about him. He always seems to stall in his development after a while. He plays very well for me, but he never takes the next leap and never really begins to make magic happen the way I’ve seen with some other players like Lukaku or Ganso. Still a great purchase if you understand his limitations.


The key to his development as a player might be to sign him up early and then give him some proper development (could be that he has low adaptability so he might take more time to settle into another country)

Worth a buy at 3.6 million pounds though for a player with his potential, compared to the insane price tags of ganso and neymar


Darren,actually i don’t want to say this but
you post two different people on one post,let me explain
Lucas Domingues Piazon is 16 yrs old,and his position is Striker and AMC
Lucas Rodrigues Moura Da Silva is 17 yrs old,and his position is AMC,AML,and Striker
Lucas Piazon which is signed by Chelsea,and the cool one :P
Lucas isn’t go to anywhere this year(next season,maybe)
whatever,two people with insane attribute :) and huge potential
Lucas(not Piazon)is one of the best value player this year,because with 3,5 mill you can bring great player.
and for people doubt him,buy him because he is insane(and cheap)
cheers :)


Haha you’re right. The Lucas that he is profiling here (it is the correct one, in fact) is actually named Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva in the game. Good catch!


Hi Darren,Thanks for the info about this beast wonderkid

Hey Darren
Im a little confused here, I have no idea which player I just saw after seeing the comments. And in my game, his tactical attributes are hopeless.


this is player profile about Lucas Rodrigues Moura Da Silva,not Lucas Piazon
(there is two Lucas on Sao Paulo)
yep,i feel same with you his tactical attributes is hopeless,at first,but with good development he will be a beast
btw the pic is Piazon not Da Silva
cheers :)


I was looking to pick this guy up myself in my game with Stoke City. I bought Erik Lamela instead, since his work permit finally passed. I may have to buy him next season, cheers for the profile ;)


He looks pretty good Darren, I signed him for Liverpool on a different FM save, and he was pretty good, filling in well when called upon. He would be a good signing I’m sure.


Super post bud. What are the odds that this Lucas kid will sign for me on free with Queens Park?? :-p


I bought him with my arsenal save and despite his poorish stats in his first season he was getting a place ahead of arshavin in my starting 11 which won the league and champions league double but i was pushing him hard as i really liked the look of him.


Brazil superstars
