This FM 2012 player profile of Joel Valencia should leave you drooling, in fact no, you shouldn’t have time to drool as you frantically rush to start up the game and buy this new found talent! While Valencia doesn’t stand out as a youngster his potential is here for all to see in the future profile above taken of the wonderkid aged 21 in 2016. That shows what Valencia can grow to if managed well, the screenshot is from Pedro Silva’s game and you must agree he has done an excellent job raising Valencia who looks incredible and still has many more years of developing to go. Seeing attributes in acceleration, agility, pace, crossing, dribbling, technique, determination and first touch make this kid one of the best wonderkids I have ever seen from an FM series. And you can have it all for just £875K, if I could I’d rate him 11/10!! Please do note though that Valencia has flexible potential meaning he may not have the ability to reach this level in your game, but he’ll still develop into a great player even if short of what you see above.
Best buy rating: 11/10 (that’s right, he defies mathematics!)
