Alvaro Vadillo career history until 2018

Alvaro  Vadillo is a flamboyant winger who can change a game. Working as a winger given a duty of attack is where you will get the maximum from him, i don’t think he would be as effective as an inside forward due to his average finishing. when you concentrate on the positives you see why he is worth having in your team. His great first touch, crossing and composure means he can deliver first time, his pace, agility and dribbling means he can beat any defender and all this combined with flair and technique would give you an ideal winger. What he lacks in scoring he will make up for in assists. Given his price tag he had better be worth it… well he is, but of course when Joel Valencia can be bought from the change in your back pocket it does affect the rating unfortunately.

Best buy rating: 8/10

Vadillo has the potential to be as good as Messi but I’ve never saw him reach that level, it would be a great sight if he did! His price tag is massive but I’m sure you could get him cheaper a couple of seasons in


this kid along side with joel valencia ( amc ) and lucas ocampos (aml) with j.ayew/ neymar/ fierro up front is a outstandig atack


i never got valencia to a great level dont know if it just my bad training or the patch i got and to get most promising youngsters first season except from the money grubbers barcelona just loan them and then buy the outright you can get vadillo for about 4 mill in the first season


i understand ryan you can get him loaned for free if you offer as soon as he agrees to come on loan to you, 8 out of 10 times you can get him for a fraction of the cost in the same transfer window thats a trick i picked up not saying the price isnt correct cause i know it is just offering a tip to other players to help them sign good talent who are way over priced


A little tip = His price goes down to 10m in mid-season


I just managed to get this guy for £3 million in the second season. No idea how, he didnt fall put with the manager or want to leave the club for a big side because i’m only newcastle! Looking forward to see how he developes!


What do you recomend to train him on and where to play him? also should i try to get him out on loan or keep him as a sub bring him on most games and play him in the cup games?


i play 4-2-3-1. but i might change it to darrens arsenal tactic. I do bring him on every game unless my two wingers are playing well and have good fitness. and also i will play him all cup games because im not expected to win anything with newcastle as of yet


his wage is too high


this guy looks good,I will send the SS when i reach 2018


Have a Betis save and he has been excellent for me. Only 20 years old but a key player and he has performed well in the champions league. He players well in the big games often for me. Ryan could you tell me, has that got anything to do with the fact that he is a local boy?


amazing player!!got him in sporting(POR) thrird season .!already first team player! but….inside forward or right winger !!!???? he has moves into channels and cut inside for preferred moves!!

Ahh choices… This lad or Oxlade-chamberlaine? I just finished my 4th season with Newcastle and I’m looking in changing my tactic from 4-1-2-2-1 to 4-2-3-1 (there are too many amazing AMC’s in this game; I’ve got Gotze for that position (plays AMR-AP now)). So I’m looking for a actual right winger. Now I’ve got the list back to those two. Oxlade will cost me around 30M euro and Vadillo will be 37M; Wage is more expensive for Oxlade though; Stats are very similar, Vadillo is slightly better and a year younger; Oxlade is English (I’ve got NO(!) actual English player… Read more »
