Leandro Damiao’s career history until 2018

This FM 2013 player profile of Leandro Damiao shows one of the most deadly poachers in the game. Damiao built up a massive repuation last year and he certainly doesn’t disappoint this time around. Unfortunately the future screenshots above don’t show Leandro’s full development, I’m sure his physical stats and dribbling could be much higher. But it does give you a good idea of how deadly the Brazilian can be, he was born to score goals and demonstrates it with 239 goals from 318 games. Yes its in the Brazilian leagues but a goal ratio of 0.75 per game can’t be ignored. Just a shame he isn’t the cheapest wonderkid at £52 million, that is what brings the rating down alongside him not developing fully in my save.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    Would off thought Damiao would be much better suited to a target man role

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 21, 2012

      Not really, he’s far too dangerous in front of goal to be anything other than a poacher…don’t get me wrong he could be a target man also but poacher suits him best.

    could you do a profile on P. Dybala (Palermo) please he’s been given 5* using Steve Rowley. I’m still in first season and would like to see how he progress’s

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 22, 2012

      Not improved enough in my save to warrant one I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Peter Chiu October 30, 2012

    Hi, my names is Peter. I bought this kid at age 24, and believe me, he had so many hat tricks when i have him in my Liverpool~ scoring almost 60 goals a season.. this kid is a score machine, give him a poacher role and he will give you great results

      He can certainly hit the net!

  • comment avatar Kevin November 16, 2012

    Had this guy with liverpool as a poacher using a 4-1-2-2-1 tac. So far hes been a flop. Probably something i’m doing wrong, but this was certainly not what i was expecting.

  • comment avatar shay November 20, 2012

    he was very good at the start of my save for me but the second season he has been a major flop and so has rodrigo y??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      Could be many reasons, all I can tell you is they won’t have dropped in ability, so maybe you should try adjusting your team talks or resting them.

  • comment avatar shay November 20, 2012

    ok i have a formation with an advanced play maker in d middle and 2 strikers , neymar and damiao … i want the 2 strikers always scoring what is the best role for 2 strikers to work 2gether and both score goals, i want to buy cavani also,….can u do a profile for james rodrigues and iker munain, because munain has been fantastic for me on d wing as an inside forward

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      The roles depends completely on the tactic overall not just a shape and what you want to achieve, you should consider who you have and test different roles. We will do those profiles eventually but only once cheaper options are done.

    How much did anyone pay for him?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 7, 2013

      Haven’t tried to sign him in a proper save myself but at the start of a new game in the latest patch the asking price shown is correct.

  • comment avatar Miles Smith May 8, 2013

    I’ve always tried to get this guy, but his price never goes down. Even when he hands in a transfer request the asking price is about 45mil – to compare in the most recent patch I managed to sign Falcao in January with Dortmund for a mere 23.5mil.

    In one of my saves I remember being frustrated as he was coming to the end of his contract, he had been unhappy and wanting to play for a bigger club for about 3 seasons, and then he goes and signs another 4 year deal, so much for my amazing free transfer, he still wanted to leave after that.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 8, 2013

      Yeah buying RL players from Brazil is a pain, they never accept below the minimum release.

  • comment avatar kim July 11, 2013

    got him for 30m and neymar for 32m.damiao in january 2016 and neymar in july 2016.both of them unsettled and are dying to leave their club.

    hey guys .. need help ..
    i am in my third season .. need a pacy striker desperately of about 23-28 age who can score for fun because i have the support cast but the finisher is lacking . I am dominating teams but not finishing teams off . I am managing Liverpool , have plenty of budget in excess of 60m .. i have tried scouting the obvious choices but all of them are demanding too high transfer fee . Anybody who can suggest a striker that meets the above constraints . Please dont suggest obvious ones like cavani , aguero , rooney , jovetic etc . these all are out of budget .
    P.S : As of now i have set my sights on Chicharito . he plays for bayern in my save and is available for 18m . can you suggest an alternative .

    Thanks in advance :)
