Career Stats

This FM 2013 player profile of Lucas Romero comes with thanks to Danilo, one of our readers. Romero has grown into one of the best ball winning midfielders around, those attributes do all the talking. Untouchable mental stats, with great tackling, marking and outstanding strength and speed. This kid is the complete article.

Even if your Romero can’t reach these hefty heights due to injuries, he’s still well worth £7 million…but should you get everything from this lad, then its an absolute bargain.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    looks great mental and physical attributes very good, be interesting to see how you could develop him under human management, a bit similar to Cirigliano

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 27, 2013

      He certainly does have an air of Cirigliano about him, I’d expect much more from human management.

  • comment avatar Cesc March 27, 2013

    Wow. Such a player. Been looking for a CM like him for a long time. Thanks Darren

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 27, 2013

      He is one that I only saw once the latest patch had been released, surprised since he’s such a good prospect.

      • comment avatar Cesc March 27, 2013

        that’s why I cannot find him. Him and Cirigliano are perfect for the midfield. might want to attempt a pure Argentina XL in England

  • comment avatar Volland Machine March 27, 2013

    Injury Proneness might be the reason that he had not reached his potential.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 27, 2013

      While that is possible, I think it could also be the countries he has played in, had an English, Spanish or Italian club snapped him up with regular first team football I reckon that development would look much better.

  • comment avatar Andy March 27, 2013

    Not to be picky, but you might want to swap ‘Brazilian’ for ‘Argentinian’

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 27, 2013

      Well spotted, I’ve corrected the mistake.

  • comment avatar Dan Scutt March 28, 2013

    Decided to spend £8m on this guy in second season nd get Darren Fletcher to tutor him, so lets see how he develops under human management.

  • comment avatar Illyas March 28, 2013

    Would he be a better Ball Winning Midfielder (Defend) in CM than Crisetig?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 28, 2013

      Depends on what you want, when developed Crisetig can’t be touched for his ability to win the ball back and turn up during important matches, but if you want someone who will get down and play a bit more then Romero is best.

  • comment avatar Dan Scutt March 28, 2013

    Imo yes. Crisetig would be best suited as a deep lying playmaker. You would have a pretty good midfield if u could get both players

  • comment avatar LmFaO March 29, 2013

    Good player.. but Cirigliano is much better imho…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 29, 2013

      Cirigliano is better, but not better at the start of the game making Romero much easier to develop seen as you can start him from the off.

  • comment avatar Tomas April 1, 2013

    The one in the picture is Brian Ferreira, another great wonderkid, Lucas Romero looks similar but is shorter.

  • comment avatar darkstorm April 23, 2013

    he is very talented player right at the game start. his determination and influence can raise to very high levels thus, this lad is perfect canditation for your team captain because he has very determined personality. the team under his captainship will never know tiring and losing confidence.

    I bought him for swansea and he is already doing very nice job.

    oh injury proneness is probably a joke because this lad doesnt gets injured lol.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 23, 2013

      He is a real talent, I can’t speak for the injuries other than say the scouts sometimes get it wrong so personal experience (which you’ve had) is more reliable.

  • comment avatar darkstorm April 24, 2013

    darren please look for Corentin Jean from Estac Troyes. he is looking really nice.

  • comment avatar Jack May 28, 2013

    I have this guy on my Newcastle save and, although he’s an absolute beast in midfield, he does have a massive problem with injuries. It’s pretty frustrating and my patience with him is running out!

  • comment avatar Fridrihsbergs June 29, 2013

    Great young player. Used him as a ball winning midfielder i an arsenal save and he develeoped so much. Can also deputise well at right back with a bit of training,

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 29, 2013

      He certainly looks great, I just signed him with Basel so will be interesting to see how he develops in a so called lesser league.

  • comment avatar stenen06 July 3, 2013

    Just got him for free in january 2014 together with Son Heung-min, I was a little unsure if I was going to sign him but after watching this screenshot there was no doubt about it.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 3, 2013

      Thats a great buy, I did the same for Basel, you can’t go wrong for free even if he fails to reach this level.

  • comment avatar Goh July 8, 2013

    Hey Darren , is Javi martinez in ur list? i believe he’s the current world best dmc/mc among the wonderkids

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 8, 2013

      He’s very well known, impossible to sign straight away and incredibly expensive, the three combined stopped us from profiling…but yes he’s one of the best for sure.

      • comment avatar Ian July 25, 2013

        I’m playing your 451 fluid tactic Darren, do you reckon he’ll better suited as the cm support or cm defend? Cheers

        • comment avatar Darren Smith July 26, 2013

          He could do either but I’d probably use him as MC defend due to the lack of quality players for that role that can also still play Football. Its much easier to find a supporting midfielder.
