Yann M’Vila’s career history until 2016

This FM 2012 player profile of Yann M’Vila shows one of the best FM 2012 wonderkids. This 21 year old can really play, his physical attributes can rival even the best while M’Vila’s mental stats are the main reason for his massive average ratings. Not to mention he can pass, tackle and follow his opposite number. If you want someone capable of captaining your team, stopping the opposition in their tracks and then hitting that perfectly timed pass then look no further. M’Vila is worth every penny of the £27.5 million asking price. Thanks to Kev for the future screenshots (of which the CPU was manager.)

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

Hi Darren, great job these guides, I really like to read them!
But I have an issue, I need to choose between M’vila and Sandro. They are both great but I think Sandro is a little bit better!
I’m playing 4-2-3-1 and I have a deep laying playmaker (Ganso), so I need a good worker next to him. M’vila is a great passer, but Sandro has better defensive and mental attributes, so I don’t know who to choose?
could you give me a little help?

Thanks for creating this profile! Future M’Vila looks insane. Seems his price changes minimally from start of the game to five years in given 25mil’s demanded at the start of the game and Man United paid 30 in 2016. I’ll probably buy him as an added luxury when I get Arsenal debt free with a huge cash surplus. :)

i paid 9 mil for him. with another 9 mill clause if he score 50 liga goals, which i think he never will. Its after season one.

i know it wasnt the situation in my first run, but he was unhappy, bec his team was in 15th place. I really didnt plan to get him already, but for that price i had to go for it

I call him mini-Tioté. This guys a beast, When United got interested in Tioté I used the transfer fee to sign Yann.

how do you use him? on my save he only haves 7.06 in rating and he makes a lot of mistakes!!! (I am i season 2014/2015 and managing Liverpool)

Do you think he could be developed just as effective as a CM?

Matt
Guest

It would take 1 or 2 seasons but with the formation problem could you not use the Arsenal tactic but put the ball winning midfielder in DM and an anchor man role?

Tito

i got him only for free because he’s out of contract at rennais, how luck i am

Mark
Guest

is he a lot better than Lucas Leiva?

Mark

i’ve got fabregas and gourcuff in the midfield so i wanted defensive cover for them, who’d be better suited for that role?

Hi, I have the oppurtunity to sign M’vila for £13m because Rennes were relegated and he requested a transfer as a result. Is M’Vila a better FM player than Song (in an anchor man role in a traditional 4-3-3) and worth the money and the loss of a homegrown player?

How do you use M’Vila as a CM? I tried to use him as a LCDM with Hamsik in CM and Eriksen as COM but that dont work offensiv. Should i use M’Vila as LCM ore should i use him behinde eriksen and hamsik in a 4-1-4-1 formation? ore should i use him as a LCM in a 4-2-3-1 formation? PS: I tried him in a 4-2-3-1 formation and he’s rating is only 7,08 :(.

Hey Darren, this is more a question regarding rotation; I use Liverpool and have both Lucas and M’Vila as BWM plus Kara as a youth. I just noticed that I only played M’Vila for 19(1)/12[EPL] games last season which is too low I feel. How do you go about rotating your players, particularly when you have youth players you want to develop as well? I try to have three per position (2 first xi + 1 youth/reserve) and tend to change every game (in a bid to keep conditioning/fitness high) and try and get the youth players to have least… Read more »

I got him with Lyon in the 3rd season, him with kagawa and hamsik can be deadly…. he cost only 9 million when stade rennais got relegated.. hes still only 24 and his influence is 19!!
