This FM 2013 Player Profile of James McCarthy shows one of the most hotly persued midfielders in real life. Following Wigan’s relegation, the rumour mill has exploded linking McCarthy with Spur’s, Chelsea, Arsenal and even my boys Newcastle. I think this profile confirms the opinion of SI, he’s pure gold.
During a save in which McCarthy didn’t get quite enough first team Football, he’s still a great box to box midfielder with perfect technique, near perfect passing and mental stats of a pro. Arsenal and Real Madrid invested in the Irish wizard, but he never fully settled, despite some great performances at times. If you can fully develop this kid, he’ll be one of the best.
Best buy rating: 9.5/10
