fm 2013 luke shaw career history

This FM 2013 player profile of Luke Shaw shows one of the most exciting English prospects, a youngster that can develop into one hell of a left back. He’s not really ready for Premier League football at the age of 17 but you can either send him out on loan or use him as a backup, but make sure he gets enough first team football because he can develop into a solid player in a relatively short period of time.

The future screen shots were kindly provided by Alex, one of our readers who is managing Southampton in FM 2013. As you can see Alex gave Shaw plenty of first team football and the young left back didn’t disappoint. Luke Shaw turned into a superb player at the age of 22, excellent speed, mental attributes plus tackling, marking and crossing, exactly what a good fullback needs. His value went up to 11 million and he also bagged quite a few England caps. You can get this youngster for 13 million at the start of the game so, judging by what Alex has managed to do with him, I think he’s an excellent buy.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    21 caps for England and only 22. “Incredible”

  • comment avatar Ben February 11, 2013

    The natural replacement for Ashley Cole on FM I reckon. Brilliant player although under CPU management he doesn’t seem to develop at all really.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 11, 2013

      I have him in my Barcelona save and he does develop if given enough game time, surely has the potential.

  • comment avatar pedro February 11, 2013

    probably the best or one of the best dl in this game is amazing how is mental attributes developed and the most beautiful part is that he can develope heven more . this kid is a true beast . I jsut wonder if he had some kind of player tutoring him to reach that kind of mental attributes or if its just play time.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 11, 2013

      I guess Alex will drop by to answer at some point about tutoring.

      • comment avatar Alex February 11, 2013

        Hi pedro, I don’t think I had anyone tutoring him (although I can’t actually remember), I just gave him lots of game time (as you can see he was my first choice left back by about the 2nd season) and gave him individual training on whatever I felt was weakest (started with positioning I think, did a bit on speed as well). The key thing is just to play him a lot and he develops really quickly.

        • comment avatar pedro February 12, 2013

          ty alex i will try to sign but now Southampton asks 15 million for him i will negociate with them and try to develoepd him like yours

  • comment avatar dpk04 February 12, 2013

    hey i have him in my man utd save currently tutoring him by Evra but just wondering can i somehow increase his bravery.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah February 16, 2013

    Wow, he looks like he can turn into a great left back, and could be even better with human management, I think I might get him for Man United in the second season.

  • comment avatar Wedny February 23, 2013

    wow, cant say more. 22 that stats! I thought only Corchia could develop that good (sorry i am not a native Enlish speaker )

  • comment avatar ArsenalFan March 15, 2013

    I brought him for arsenal but he never live up to expectation. I always receive training feedback that his training attitude is very casual. Loan him out but his attitude remains the same. In the end, i let him go on a free transfer. =(

  • comment avatar Kieran April 7, 2013

    He never gets this good for me,had him in about 3 different teams

  • comment avatar Tom May 11, 2013

    I bought him at the start of a game for Spurs, at age 19 was 3,5 star and made world team of the year, He needs game time to develop but is worth it in the long run, develops astonishly fast if you play him every week

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp May 11, 2013

      Great, thanks for sharing this.

  • comment avatar luke dance May 23, 2013

    i just signed him on my chelsea save for £12 million

  • comment avatar Ben Thompson June 9, 2013

    luke shaw or alaba

    • comment avatar Segroukin August 7, 2013

      Alaba for sure but Shaw’s also a beast if played regulary.
      Top 3 LB
      – Alaba
      – Alex Sandro
      – Luke Shaw

  • comment avatar eightnight August 13, 2013

    does he develop as good in the last patch?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp August 13, 2013

      The screen shots are from the last patch from what I remember.

  • comment avatar BJ August 27, 2013

    In 2018 he was a great player for me but Chelsea offered me $40 million. Had to accept that. I already had an amazing defence anyway. But he was a great player for me!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp August 27, 2013

      I agree, 40 million is a lot of money for a left back.

  • comment avatar cungcung (@cungini) September 10, 2013

    what about alex grimaldo ?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp September 11, 2013

      Hasn’t become much of a player in my save.

  • comment avatar Cesar October 19, 2013

    What training can I give Luke Shaw so he can develop that way? Full back individual role?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 19, 2013

      It’s not only about training, he also has to play regular first team football.

  • comment avatar dony87 November 4, 2013

    john, what about alex grimaldo, i have luke shaw and grimaldo in my u19
    i decide to loan out shaw to give him match experience, give me your opinion about them

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 5, 2013

      Grimaldo is good in FM 2014, we have already published his profile. He wasn’t so good in our FM 2013 test save.
