This FM 2013 Player Profile of Marco Verratti shows one of the prized talents this edition has to offer. Verratti is versatile, he can pass, dribble and turn the defender. Marco enjoys such great creativity and flair that even the best would struggle to read his game. This kid develops into the true finished article and the screenshots above might not even do him full justice.

Positives aside, I’m afraid you will struggle to sign this guy, at least early on. Yes PSG will accept £10 million (in my test save at least) but Verratti will refuse a move during the first year. My recommendation is to attempt for a loan deal and then sign him when thats up, should he want the move by then of course. Still, we rate players on their talent and value for money at the start of the game, not their availability, so he gets top marks from me.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    I play your 4-5-1 fluid with two centre midfielders and one advanced playmaker (Isco), but which two should I use as my centre midfielders? Hiljemark, Verratti or Leitner? I can only choose two.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      Verratti as support and you need a new player on the other side assuming he’s going to be defensive.

  • comment avatar vetle February 27, 2013

    Who do you suggest?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      There’s loads of players to look through through in the wonder kids list and they all have star ratings. I don’t know your team, budget, time in game so just search through the lists we put together or try a filtered search in game.

  • comment avatar vetle February 27, 2013

    I’m thinkig Crisetig. Could he play that support role?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      He could, but would be better as defend, just look at the attributes remembering that a support role requires as much going forward as it does in defence.

  • comment avatar Alexander Tommos February 27, 2013

    great player, my favorite midfielder along with Thiago in Fm 2013, well deserved 10/10.

    Have them both tearing up midfield in my barca save.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      Well that is one hell of a pairing.

  • comment avatar 123. February 27, 2013

    I looking for a CM support that can also play DLP support I think about Andrea Poli and Pajero or Barrada which one is better? Or suggestion for others

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      Maybe Poli, but just look through the wonderkids list, thats what its there for and all the players are rated.

  • comment avatar 123. February 27, 2013

    Whoelse do you suggest

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2013

      I would just be reeling off players from the list I’ve told you to look through TBH and it will vary on who is still available, your budget, team loads of stuff but the likes of Ayew, Cirigliano, Verratti and Romulo.

    • comment avatar Nick February 27, 2013

      On a budget, Ruben ytergaard Jenssen. To break the bank, Aaron Ramsey, if you need English that is

  • comment avatar MVB February 28, 2013

    I’ve just got him on loan in my second season so will see how he does and then try and tie up a permanent deal.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 28, 2013

      Certainly worth the investment.

  • comment avatar vetle March 18, 2013

    Is Verratti a late bloomer? In my game he is 24 years old with just 17 passing, 16 technique and 16 first touch. Not as good as the future screen shot shown above.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 18, 2013

      No I don’t think so, depends on how much football he’s played and if its AI development then it could be very unpredictable.

  • comment avatar Jack Dunn May 12, 2013

    I just bought him for 10.25m in October 2012 for Juventus, buzzing to see how he develops!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 12, 2013

      I doubt you’ll be disappointed that’s for sure.

  • comment avatar Habib May 14, 2013

    Managed to get this guy for Southampton in 2nd season, can’t wait to see how he turns out. Also kudos to you guys for this site, it’s amazing. For me and my mates this is the ‘go to’ site for all things FM.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 14, 2013

      Thanks Habib, glad the site has helped.

  • comment avatar Arah Timur June 7, 2013

    The next Pirlo.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 7, 2013

      I’d say so, maybe someone who can move a little more freely though.

  • comment avatar Cole June 19, 2013

    I’m really torn between this guy and verre to play a DLP support role, and/or a CM support role. in both formations I use a three man center midfield with one supporting player, one more defensive/ball winning midfielder and an advanced playmaker. who would you chose? is there anyone else you would recommend?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 19, 2013

      Those two are probably two of the best, I’d go for Verratti but only due to bias from previous versions of the game.

  • comment avatar luke dance June 24, 2013

    Just brought him for £16 million for arsenal. My midfield is DMC sven bender MC wilshere MC verratti RW oxlade chamberlain LW yarmolenko

  • comment avatar Konrad Exposito July 25, 2013

    Thiago, Gundogan or Verratti for DLP support CM

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 25, 2013

      I guess it depends on what other positions and players you have. Use Thiago if you couldn’t play him as advanced playmaker and already have a defensive minded midfielder. If not then maybe go for Gundogan or Verratti.
