FM 2012 player profile – Lucas Moura

FM 2012 best players

written by Darren Smith



Lucas Moura

Age: 18

Position: AMC/ML/AMRL/ST

Club: Sao Paulo

Nationality: Brazilian

Value: £11.5 million

Price tag: £53 million (in patch 12.2)

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

Lucas Moura’s scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Lucas Moura’s profile aged 26 in the year 2019

Lucas Moura’s career history until 2019

Lucas Moura is probably one of the most talented midfielders in FM 2012, but his price tag of £53 million represents that and makes him near impossible to sign. Moura is best deployed in attacking midfielder but can feature on either wing or even upfront. Not only is he similar to Messi in versatility but he holds similar style. So if you want the new Messi (obviously not as good) here he is, but you’ll need to cough up the big bucks!

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

Yesss he develops!…always had problems in FM11 getting him to a decent standard…he seemed to fail to reach potential!

At 26, arguably hes yet to hit his peak! Nice development across all stats!

A luxury purchase! (with that price tag)

Nick

I bought him with the Spurs for 27 ml UK pound (32 mln Euro)
Still 19 years old… wondering how he will fit in my team!

Nick
Guest

I guess I was lucky then.. Although I did let him and the media know that I was highly interested in him.
I bought him after the first season during the summerbreak. What do you think? Can I let him play from the beginning? (still have Modric and Rvd Vaart)

James Kelly
Guest

He became unhappy in my game with the manager, asked for a transfer and I picked him up for 12 million!!!!! without doubt my best ever buy, just hope and pray he does the same for you guys.

I have Christian Eriksen and Lucas in Liverpool and i don’t have any good left wing so i wonder shall i use Griezmann, then Eriksen ore Lucas have to go ore shall i use Lucas on the left wing?

ok i will see if it works , im playing him on the right wing because even with hazard on it if it gets injured the only options i have is chamberlain but he lacks in terms of tecnical attributes, and that turns the thing a litlle bit dificult to choose on the left or right and beisdes the kid is doing a really good damage on that right.

I played Lucas Moura in Shakhtar Donetsk until the age of 28, he definitely is not at his peak at age 26 and will continue to develop until age much later.

He scored 12 goals in winning me a Champions Cup with Shakhtar and was awarded every possible award there is that year, scoring 37 goals in 40-42 games.

Sorry for double post, here is Lucas Moura playing as a Striker with Willian, he is about 23 here.

Fantastic site this. Thank you Darren!

Forgot what I was about to ask:
What do you think of the young french winger Yaisien?

Heresy
Guest

I’m managing PSG and I haven’t really played him much but in those 10-15 games that he played for me, he’s a much better AMC than AMR. He hasn’t made a showing as AMR -ever-, i usually forget he’s on the pitch when he plays there. But he can be a good AMC.

don,t select brazilina liga and u have him for 26milion,and the best player is bale

CharlieFineman

I’ve been rotating Lucas and Pastore in the middle just behind the striker with huge success, it’s true that it takes time for Lucas to blossom, but when he does, you’ll be amazed. He won me the CL final vs Madrid single-handedly.

I’ve got a lot of money to spend and i only need one player to fill in as an right or left winger or as a BWM. My 2 teams would either be; Ter Stegen Sk vsaljko bocchetti howedes sagna fb(s) Bpd(x) Cd(c) fb(s) Ramsey Hamsik Wilshere Cm(s) Dlp(s) B2B(s) Willian Moura If(A) If(A) Cavani Af(A)

For the first tactic im scared that my defence arent going to get any cover but i cant find a top class BWM and Moura looks awesome what tactic do you think i should use and carry on the great work

Chris Spaull

Ok thanks but what roles should i give my 3 cms of ramsey, hamsik and wilshere

On my save he actually replaced Messi somehow! Barca let Messi go on a free which was pretty shocking.

Seamus
Guest

I am chelsea, and looking to replace f.lampard. who would you consider as the best option. I play a 4-4-2. With mata, ramires, lampard, nevas in midfield.

then torres and llorente up front. Any suggestions in personell to spice things up a bit?

T Brown
Guest

I got Messi on a free when he was 29. Barca got a regen that had equal stats to Messi at 19!

Hey…We’ve talked before…Never really had the luxury of signing this guy but…ive recently started an AC Milan game…now 3 seasons in, taking over EU…just got barca on the first knockout game and its december… Agent says that Lucas would be open to a move…I have been trying to get this guy for 3 years and after scouting it said 23 mil is req. , which I was shocked at! Jovetic has taken over my left wing permanently and i change between pato/el shaaraway and reus for right wing but I am wondering if Lucas is like el shaaraway who plays… Read more »

Joeyboy

Ha, just bought him with Shakhtar for 12.25m in july of the first season! Sick!

Joeyboy
Guest

What position and role do you think i should play him to get his full qualities out?

Joeyboy
Guest

Haha okay mate (y) keep up the great work by the way, great website :D and one last question, do you think you’ll do all this again later this year when FM13 comes out?

Alec
Guest

Bought him at start of game for £17.5 mil (Didn’t select Brazil Leagues) and he is absolutely amazing! Playing him just like Messi, and he gets loads of goals and assists!

Han

Hey Darren, would need your advise on this. I’m in my second season with liverpool and i’m looking for a AML. I wanted to get willian but he decided to sign for AC Milan instead (since Pato was his fav personnel as well) and I lost out on him. Who else would you recommend? I’m considering ramirez, yarmolenko, moura and even gotze (hazard went to man city for £71mil sadly). Thou gotze and moura would be on the pricey side.. Apart from the usual liverpool squad, so far I’ve signed badelj, vrsaljko, sigurdsson & fierro. The bunch of older players… Read more »

Thanks for the reply, Darren. I’ve plans to sign kagawa in S’13 when he’s on free transfer. Weiss would definitely be my backup plan if kagawa goes to barcelona instead. I’ve narrowed down the shortlist, Ramirez goes at $13m, yarmolenko $14m and moura @ $50m. I think I’ve forgot to mention this but both my AMRL as playing as inside forward. Out of the three above which one would you recommend? He’s gonna play along side Suarez/Fierro(FW) & Henderson/Downing/Sterling/Kagawa(AMR) I’m thinking of playing Suarez over at AML and sign a finisher upfront. But will his training schedules be affected? Instead… Read more »

I got Lucas Moura for FCP for £53m paid for him over 48 months, he played 19 games overall nd scored 16 goals from amc only Hulk scored more with 34 goals, this lad is something special

Dan Scutt
Guest

Hopefully if man united sign him I won’t have to spend big money on him on next FM

Dan Scutt
Guest

Tbh I think that was just Hazard choosing Chelsea nd Fergie spitting dummy out lol, but United have been given an extra £50m to strengthen so whether he’ll pay what they want is something we’ll have to wait to see

Dan Scutt
Guest

Tbh I think his asking price is a bit much for an unproven Brazilian

darren smith you got ripe off. i got him for 16.75 million with arsenal and at the moment he is playing incredibly shit. quite franly people don’t sign him because even Aaron Ramsay is out performing him.

Chris
Guest

I got him for £15.5 million at the start of a new game for Arsenal, absolute beast!

zaky
Guest

i Promise you i got him for 16.75 million in the new patch no lie.

DinamoZagreb
Guest

darren, do you think he could be better amc than ganso or pastore?? or could he be better amr than gotze? btw i didnt see pastores profile here, why is that? he seems like an absolute beast to
me at the start of the game, and hes only 22

DinamoZagreb
Guest

hey darren, i didnt know where to ask you this and sorry to bother you, but could you take a look in any of your saves at Dino Spehar. he is 17 at the start of the game and my arsenal scouts give him good potential. could you see if he develops into a solid player?

Harper O'Keeffe
Guest

About to buy him for 14 million in the first season am so excited. I am Man City and are out in front in the EPL.

Matt Law
Guest

I got Moura in my 1st season for £17.5m for Spurs… Mr Levy did the negotiating for me.
What is his best position? I have been playing him LW/IF and ACM, but i always struggle who to leave out Bale or Van der Vaart…. where would you suggest? if i put him on LW as IF is Bale as good at LB?
