Ganso’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Ganso’s scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Ganso’s profile aged 25 in the year 2015

Ganso’s career history until 2015

This FM 2012 player profile of Ganso shows a top class playmaker born to dictate the flow of a game at any level. Ganso develops into a passing supremo and his future screenshots show the genius that this talented playmaker turns into, his real understanding for the game is almost that of Fabregas. I reckon that leaving Brazil would see the wonderkid developed into one of the most deadliest CM’s in FM. However, the asking price is just ridiculous and this alone drops my rating from 10 to 8, he may be cheaper further down the line but not available too much below that of his minimum release clause.

Best buy rating: 8/10

Why are your future screenshots so bad? Hazard didn’t improve, Douglas Costa didn’t improve and now a screenshot of Ganso who didn’t improve! What’s wrong with your save?

His main weakness is his injury proneness imo. So that is maybe a factor why he has declined especially on his physical attributes (stamina balance …)

The asking price is a bit strange. I have the same patch and I was able to get him for 30-35 mil pounds in my first save.
I asked the Manchester United board to negotiate the offer for me after I said he would be an important player.
Also for me he wasn’t too injury prone. He was injured once in my first season for about a month. However the lack of injury may depend on the rating of the club physios.
From personal experience, a highly recommended player.

I’ve found out on couple of my saves that Ganso’s price is 22.5m at the start.

I can give you a screenshot from 2016, bought him for 50M euros and the kid is an absolute must the mental abilities are just ridiculous as well as the other attributes, and yes he is injury prone but it all depends on the physios imo, since he was only injured twice in total in 3 seasons for about 2-3 weeks max.

Can Ganso works well with Hazard? Ganso will be in AP role and Hazard is in AML with IF duty. Im playing 4-5-1 tactics.

Thanks Darren, can I have the future profile of Lucas Moura? He seems like a future star player and my current scout treat him as definite purchase.

James

Great player I don’t know where you are getting your prices from? I got ganso for 34 million and i picked up lucas moura for 12 million but that was because he asked for a transfer, great job by the way.

Martin K

Its still too much money. I think his too slow for an AMC and as CM Ramsey is cheaper and better.

Man, just started a new save and had so much luck! fisrt of all I started with SL Benfica and was looking for a player like Pablo Aimar, who could replace it. then my scout reported that ganso was available for 25 million euros, but I think it was due to his long term injure (I’m in the beggining of 2012 and he is still injure). so I bought him but only to come in june/july 2012. I’m so happy that I could get I’m for that price. A big investment for a club like mine both in buying the… Read more »

Reading the comments about Ganso being available for anything less than 50M makes my eyes water. Started a new game with Arsenal, just because of the ridiculous transfer budget of 70M if you edit the wage/transfer thing. After negotiations the price they would accept was 62M Euro. Went on holiday for half a year, offered again and this time they settled for 58M. In the 2012 summer transfer window the price went down to 55M. I got bored of baking my behind on holiday so i didn’t pursue it further then. Started another game as Barcelona and the bid of… Read more »

Hello guys. I just bought Ganso and sιnce I also own two fantastic players for AMCs (Kaka and Hazard),and also the left side is taken by Di Maria, I wondered: Is Ganso as effective as a CM as he is as an AMC?

On 12.2 I bought ganso for 24mil in july/june 2012…. he wasn’t unhappy or anything

scouser
Guest

I’m on the latest patch, and in the January 2012 window I got him for 28m (9m up-front, rest over four years)

joe

2 seasons in i just got him for £34 million. bargain.

Kapizak1 PL
Guest

Bought him in 1st season (January) for £18m! :P
Believe me or not, I don’t use FMRTE or anything like it. I think that something’s wrong with my save – Mamadou Sakho was available for £9.5m at the beginning (pity I didn’t notice that earlier), Chiellini is available for £20m ;D

wonderboy
Guest

got him for £9m first season summer with Tottenham ;)

Ned Blackburn

i got him for 24 million at the end of season 1 – they set an initial price of 40 mil, but i dicked around with clauses and the like and got it donw to that somehow

He was simply infuriating on my save. Had him for 4 seasons with Arsenal and his stats were magnificent, but he was a nightmare to keep fit. If he wasn’t injured, he was unfit. Paul McGrath had better powers of recovery than him. Could never play more than one game a week, sometimes needed even longer to get to 95% or more. No-one else in my team had this issue and even sticking him on a Ledley King schedule he still wheeled through each game. Great player, if you have a big enough squad to rest him for half the… Read more »

Unbelievable AMC, snapped him up for 16,5 mil EUR in my first season with Anji (the russian version of Man City and PSG :P) and he became world class. Creativity never dropped below 20! PLayed him behind Eto and they were indeed lethal. But yes, he was very injury prone. At least he didn’t have any serious injuries. And in my safe I also didn’t have serious fitness issues. But his injuries cost me the Champions League, since his backup Granero was nowhere near his quality.

i always felt this guy was better on cm than on amc. even though his natural position is amc. hey darren do you think lucas moura can be better than ganso?? and i read so many comments saying ganso is so annoyingly prone to injuries. i mean i dont wanna give 30-40 mil. for a guy that will spend 6 months in a year recovering from an injury

who to buy marvin martin or ganso?

Darren, thank you again for this amazing guide. Your efforts have made the lives of so many FMers that much more easier, so cheers and beers for that. I’ve bought Ganso in my game; I’ve had him for 2 years, minimal injuries, played 60 odd games but is yet to really set the field on fire. His stats are amazing; have played him in his preferred role of AP but from a central midfield position as I don’t play with an AMC (his natural position). I’ve played him there for 2 years now, all the time having put CM as… Read more »
