Joao Moutinho’s career history until 2017

This FM 2012 player profile of Joao Moutinho shows off the midfielders true talent. While he may not be an ox, enjoy blistering pace nor have the technical ability of Messi, what Moutinho does have is something you can’t teach. This kid knows Football and has eyes in the back of his head, if you need someone to dictate the pace of play and keep his head under pressure then look no further. If you can get this guy for less than £15 million then I’d rate him 8/10 but from what I’ve seen a bid of £23.5 million is required which brings Moutinho’s rating down to 7.5/10

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2012

      He develops into one of the best central midfielders in the game.

  • comment avatar p January 1, 2012

    and cedric bakumbu is he still good as the print taken on fm 2011 ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2012

      I’m not sure because he hasn’t developed in my saves but that could be down to lack of first team football.

  • comment avatar p January 1, 2012

    hmmm do you gonna make a profile of him ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2012

      And I enjoy helping mate, hopefully I should get a few more out there next week.

    Hey, Darren

    Do you think it would be a good idea to accomodate Schweinsteiger, Moutinho and Kroos in the same midfield?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2012

      Definitely. I always say you should have a three man central midfield all differing in their duty. Schweinsteiger could do well defensive, Moutinho support and Kroos attack.

      • comment avatar N.Loureiro January 2, 2012

        I will use schweini as deep-lying playmaker with support duty, Moutinho as a central midfielder with attack duty and Kroos as an advanced playmaker with support duty

    hi darren,

    do you have any idea how to get the best out of joao mountinho? i got him for 12.5 million half way into the first season but whenever he plays his ratings are around 6.5-6.7 and no matter what kind of pep talk i give him he doesnt improve.is there anyway to get him to impose himself more in matches? all he does is to make simple passes.i play him as a deep lying playmaker with support duty.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 13, 2012

      There are players in game that are solid and play a good game but never really hit high ratings and Moutinho can fall into that category…due to his lack of physical and technical ability he doesn’t really shine as such. Nothing to be done but enjoy his consistency as that is what he’s great for.

      • comment avatar bel January 13, 2012

        thanks for the insight darren.just that it puzzles me because his ratings are rather high in porto but im
        guessing its because of the difference in standards of the leagues.im using chelsea by the way.anyway thanks alot for your efforts in compiling this list.looking forward to more additions.cheers.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 13, 2012

          Yeah the standard of Portugal is far lower than England and I think that players like Moutinho can thrive with such a footballing brain but he doesn’t really have that magic touch or burst of acceleration or even the strength of an ox to make a huge difference when it counts.

    I got him 10m…and his atributes in my game(2014)is better than yours in 2017
