Iker Muniain career history until 2019
This FM 2013 player profile of Iker Muniain shows one of the best young players in FM 13 and his steady progress until the year 2019. At the beginning of the game he’s only 19 years old but his talent would make him slot right into any team in the world. The only thing that he doesn’t have is strength but apart from that this wonderkid has all the necessary attributes to be a huge star. Unfortunately his club, Athletic Bilbao, are unwilling to let him go, and I can’t really blame them. They want no less than 39 million for him at the start of the game and there is no indication that they might settle for a lower price in the next seasons.
In fact, he remained at Bilbao until 2019 in my save, which probably shows that they didn’t agree to a lower asking price in future seasons. However, I would pay as much as that for him. If you look at his future profile you will be impressed by his amazing flair, dribbling, technique and off the ball movement while his speed is also very good. He would be a great inside forward in any team in the world but he can also cover the attacking midfielder, advanced playmaker and trequartista roles.
