Dos Santos’ profile aged 26 in 2016

Dos Santos’ career history until 2016

Giovani dos Santos is a great player in all attacking midfield positions and he could do a decent job up front. He is very quick, his first touch is exquisite and his dribbling is top-drawer. In my save, when he has had his opportunity in the Bayer Munich first-team Dos Santos hasn’t dissapointed, every season his rating is above seven. My only worry is the ammount of assists he has. For £13.5 million he is a decent buy.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    Don’t understand how Harry always neglects these players IRL. Every other top drawer manager rotates their players to a degree and seems like Redknapp’s too uncertain in his own ability to give these players a chance. Still I wouldn’t be complaining if he put a reasonable fee on Dos Santos -_-

      Harry has his own managing style, but i’m sure he knows more about football management than us!

    Dos Santos always seems to do well and go to Liverpool in my saves :P And, have you considered looking into Dortmund’s Ivan Perisic? He seems to have pretty good ratings, and plays really well in the advanced playmaker CAM role.

    Perisic is a good player but I don’t have any good future screenshots of him and there are better and cheaper AMCs than him

    Darren, you say you don’t bother with PPMs, but I find they make a player, especially the places shot one

      That is just how I manage, I’ve always found training on attributes more important.
