Astori is one of few very solid centre backs that can walk into any team, cement his place and last until his mid 30’s. The screenshots above show the Italian in decline and they are still very flattering, he starts with the right defensive skills and just develops those mental stats to an amazing level. Well worth buying to plug a hole in your leaky back four. Technically sound, Astori can pass his way out of trouble and reads the game like a children’s book. Not bad for £10 million.

Best buy rating: 9/10

    He’s insane, and he always hand in a transfer request at the start of the game

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 3, 2013

      I hadn’t noticed the transfer request thing, thats good news as you’d expect him to move almost anywhere within reason.

      • comment avatar js94 April 3, 2013

        Yeah since the update he always seems to put in a request near the start

        • comment avatar Nick Sundin April 3, 2013

          Yeah I’d second this, I got him for 16m at end of 1st season for AC Milan, he’s quality in terms of attributes and performance. This screenshot is a little underwhelming compared to my experience with him, he’s been wasted at Cagliari.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith April 3, 2013

            Yeah I have seen him progress better in other patches, partially down to age but mainly down to Cagliari’s development, he did much better with Arsenal in the last patch.

  • comment avatar Miles Smith April 3, 2013

    Considering he’s considered to be worth £7.75m at the start of the game to get him for just 30% over that seems a good price.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 3, 2013

      I agree, not many clubs will let him go for so close to the value.

  • comment avatar realfan May 23, 2013

    hands down he is good…Nowhere near to Shawcross though.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 24, 2013

      No doubting Shawcross’ ability but also depends on what you’re looking for in a defender I guess, Seen as you’re making that comment I guess you’ve used both players in game then? Otherwise its a bit of a rash assumption as the attributes don’t back up your comment and the career stats are from AI management which is always way lower than human management.
