Neymar’s scouting report from Moss of Liverpool


Neymar’s profile aged 27 in 2019


Neymar’s career history until 2019

In my opinion, here we have THE best wonderkid on this years game. The list of his epic attributes is huge, I will list the best ones: Dribbling, agility, first touch, flair, off the ball, composure, finishing, and the list goes on. His record in my future save is brilliant  124 goals in 242 games if my maths is correct. He also chips in will a lot of assists. He is practically unbuyable at the start of the game, but that asking prices drops a lot later on, so keep an eye open or you may miss the talent of FM13.

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

    He looks so good! Even though it is hard to believe, but wouldnt he be better with human management?
    Also, do you think he can be as good as messi or ronaldo?
    Keep up the good work :)

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton October 25, 2012

      Yes, he probably can grow even more with human management, I would train him on his finishing. And I don’t think he can be good as Messi or Ronaldo, but along with Gotze they’re the closest you’ll get on the game. Apart from regens of course.

    • comment avatar Flekica August 23, 2013

      He is great. I play whit Barcelona, and I’m using database transfer update by pro and I’m only at season 2, and he is al ready better then Ronaldo.. ;)

      • comment avatar Darren Smith August 24, 2013

        He is great but if that was a database update then chances are he may well have been tampered with as some of the guys doing those unofficial updates like to make the stats more to their taste of how they see the player.

        • comment avatar Flekica August 31, 2013

          It may be, but this update is very popular and a man who worked the update is very professional to, so I think that he was trying to be real. Changes in general are small, very small.

          The point is, a great player, also can still advance. In the first season he was second asistent of the lague and score some goals to.

          Sorry for the weak English language. :)

          • comment avatar Darren Smith August 31, 2013

            Yes he can definitely progress, as shown in the profile also.

  • comment avatar Dan Scutt October 25, 2012

    Chelsea signed him on my Rangers save for £27.5M not that dear if ur a big club nd really is the best on this years game

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton October 25, 2012

      Yes I agree that is a brillaint price for him and if you’re a top club he isn’t too difficult to get.

    • comment avatar JonathonM1994 November 21, 2012

      I put a 50 million pound bid in for him and got rejected. I am playing as Arsenal and may instead buy Gomez/Huntelaar/Lewandowski and Nueur/Akinfeev instead of Neymar but I really like him

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 21, 2012

        He is great but you can get so much for the price.

  • comment avatar Alexander Tommos October 25, 2012

    Yeah! Just received my full game in the mail today, shall be fun to see if I can install and play it directly, and see if I can sign me some Neymar ;)

  • comment avatar Karl Deighton October 25, 2012

    Nice, you’ll probably only recieve the BETA now, and it will update when the full game is released. You need to sign him! ;)

    • comment avatar Alexander Tommos October 25, 2012

      you seem to be correct, still says beta all over, but I don’t mind. :)

  • comment avatar Brandon strain October 25, 2012

    Got him in my second season with man united for 24 million absolute beast on the left wing, averaging more than a goal a game. :)

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton October 26, 2012

      Yeah he can be devastating from the left wing, along with striker

  • comment avatar Harry October 25, 2012

    Honestly if you remove the name and just show his stats you would think it’s messi..

  • comment avatar Diego de Barros October 25, 2012

    The Neymar Profile it´s wrong, because in real life:
    -Stamina is 19, he can play 3 games in the weak without to be substitute
    -Teamwork and passing is 17, he makes a lot assists
    -Influence is 15,because with him the average of the Santos victory is 85%, and he was captain in some games
    -Bravery and Composure is 17,not afraid of any defender or goalkeeper, so it makes as many goals Beautiful

    • comment avatar :d October 30, 2012

      Give him 20 Dirtyness for diving.

      1 Natural Fitness for being ‘injured’ in every game.

      Really talented player just needs to cut that diving crap out. Pathetic to watch sometimes when you see someone so skilled act around like that.

  • comment avatar Daniel October 26, 2012

    What about Victor Andrade? He seems to have a great potencial, not as much as Neymar, obviously

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton October 26, 2012

      He has bags of potential, but he hasn’t fulfilled it, he is still decent though

  • comment avatar yankeejoshy October 27, 2012

    from how much he falls over IRL you’d think his balance and strength were 1…

  • comment avatar thegunnerth14 November 4, 2012

    Any chance of doing a player profile on Luis Muriel?

  • comment avatar step November 28, 2012

    can some one help me. in my game santos acepts one offer 45 million in cash and the rest in acomplish things, but the thing is i have the money ( 45 m ) but still i can not sign because the money doesn´t cover!?!?. but the price is on 45 and the price that appears is 45 + price for acomplished things suposed future. can anybody help me ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 29, 2012

      Only when you can confirm the question and what the accomplished thing is? If the board won’t let the offer go through pay some of it in installments.

  • comment avatar step November 29, 2012

    the offer was this :

    35m ( i had 40 million ) cash + 50% next transfer


    scoring 30 goals- 25 m
    playng 20 games international – 25
    playing in the league – 25
    games made for the club – 10

    but the thing is in falcao transfer from atletico madrid
    i put the offer like this



    games for the club – 5M
    and i contracted him.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 29, 2012

      Just add the numbers you offered for him, of course you won’t get him with the budget you have.

  • comment avatar step November 29, 2012

    santos accepts rthe offer the problem is when it comes to sign for my club says that i don´t have the money to wait another week . when i have firt the 35M to pay and since the rest is just on game

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 30, 2012

      I just answered this, of course your club won’t let it go through when you are guaranteeing Santos so much money in the future for certain clauses, that is just common sense.

  • comment avatar Daniel December 1, 2012

    Using him as a striker, which role do you think he produces the best he can?

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton December 2, 2012

      You could get that advice from your assistant manager. But personally I would use him as a poacher or deep lying forward.

  • comment avatar Ankit December 7, 2012

    With his price tag, i really amaze that how can he even makes your list. 99.9% clubs will fail to match his asking price even in third or forth season. The reality is that every fm player will visit his profile and wish that what if he joins there team as they think about ronaldo and messi. Fact that carlos fierro scores goal per game at my club real madrid paying only 4 millions. What he lacking is only reputation. Signing neymar will only boost club shirt sale. (Actually revenue earned by shirt sales in Football manager 2013 is much lesser than you can actually earned in real life). So no from me to neymar.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

      You obviously haven’t read through all the comments we received during FM12 and FM13 then, they all demanded more high profile players, so that is why he’s been profiled…we really can’t win, but as they say, you can’t please everyone!

  • comment avatar Cam December 18, 2012

    Managed to sign him for 99m with Barca, they offered my a job in my second season with Liverpool and 89m transfer budget sounded like fun. Is he wasted as an inside forward on the left? as i’ve signed Rodrigo for a striker and he cant replace Messi on the right

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton December 18, 2012

      He is great as an AML cutting inside, that trio would be devastating!

  • comment avatar Reece December 26, 2012

    signed him for 45m in my arsenal save, 3rd season

  • comment avatar rui January 3, 2013

    fo me best used as a if on the left wing he does wounders , 30 games in the league and 25 goals just perfect goal machine along side with falcao and gotze well a trio that destroys any defence

  • comment avatar KW13 February 8, 2013

    Best player on FM13 ouside Ronaldo and Messi – Taking into account the age

    Briliant game in game out.

    Worth Every Penny If you manage to get him for <50M

  • comment avatar Steve Evans February 13, 2013

    Signed him on my chelsea save in my second season for 36.5mil. Along with Gotze or Cavani AMR, Hazard or Mata AMC, Kroos or Ramsey CM, De Rossi or Mascherano CM, Leandro Damiao or Falcao ST and Neymar or Hazard AML ive been pretty unstoppable

    • comment avatar Miles Smith March 10, 2013

      That sounds like a half decent side you got there.

  • comment avatar Miles Smith March 10, 2013

    It’s interesting to see he’s now ‘affordable’ at the start of the game. I would still wait a season before signing him because you’re more likely to get him on favorable terms.

  • comment avatar Derm April 21, 2013

    Cost me 34 million. Got him playing striker in front of Isco, Wilshire and Thiago at United, hasn’t quite clicked yet…. but when it does…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 21, 2013

      It will click eventually and that must be the most deadly trio out there.

  • comment avatar Per May 8, 2013

    Just signed him to my Manchester United save. Got Lamela on right and RVP as striker. Excited for the season!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 8, 2013

      Wow that is a very exciting trio.

  • comment avatar Tomas May 23, 2013

    I got neymar on my manchester united save, what train should I give him? Also, should I set the train for the AML position first? Since he is strange to it

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 23, 2013

      If you want to play him in AML then set training appropriately and just focus on his training as an inside forward as well.

      • comment avatar Tomas May 24, 2013

        Do you think he can be a good if just like he’s a good pl?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith May 24, 2013

          Sorry I don’t understand the question?

          • comment avatar Tomas May 27, 2013

            I’m sorry Darren.. What I am trying to know is, which position should I play him and which train should I give him assuming that I got Rodrigo as a proacher?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith May 27, 2013

            Depends on your formation, system and other players, but I’d play him as an inside forward from AML and train him on inside forward schedule also.

  • comment avatar Tomas May 27, 2013

    Seems good to me, so 2 Inside fowards (Neymar and James) Rodrigo as a proacher and toni kroos as playmaker could make a deadly combination?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 27, 2013

      Most certainly, in the right tactic of course.

      • comment avatar Tomas May 27, 2013

        Thank you so much Darren, I’m new to the FM world so I was kinda naive. You helped me tons, thanks again!

  • comment avatar Darryl September 9, 2013

    Neymar is a god. Bought him on FM 13 (2nd season) for £34m. He scored 34 goals in 37 in the league. and another 7 in CL and FA Cup. Played him as a deep lying forward solo (backed by three attacking midfielders/inside forwards). Won the treble (and the PL unbeaten). Sensational striker when trained to place the ball.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith September 9, 2013

      He is an exceptional player.

  • comment avatar Darsnider October 4, 2013

    well now him and messi is unattainable

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 4, 2013

      I’d say so, at the start of the game at least.

  • comment avatar Itoro October 29, 2013

    Götze and Hazard are the best wonderkids mate!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 29, 2013

      They are certainly two of the best.
