This FM 2013 player profile of Samuel Umtiti shows a brilliant wonderkid, a player of immense talent and excellent physique. At the age of 18 he can already make a decent signing for most top-flight sides and that’s not something you can encounter very often. He already has excellent mental attributes at that young age and I’d suggest signing him right away, the only drawback being the asking price, which is 15 million pounds. Not too much though for a player of such quality and with no real weaknesses.

He made steady progress in my test save while remaining at Lyon until 2019, his mental attributes improved even further, added a bit of speed and strength plus very good defending skills (marking, tackling, heading). He also has decent passing, first touch and technique, skills that make him a good candidate for a ball playing defender role. As a bonus, he can also be employed as a left back. So, if you need a good left-footed defender this kid should definitely be on your shortlist.

Best buy rating: 10/10

I’ve been looking forward to this profile. I’ve got to say, he looks immense!

Nick Dunn

Great name.


Hey Johnny, I’m currently playing an Everton save and was wondering what your thoughts were on Andi Weimann, Remy Cabella, and John Stones on the new patch


You can get him for 10M not 15M


He is too small for a centre back and cant jump. he is too lame in attack for a left back. whats this hype?

Miles Smith

My suggestion making it to the scouting database. This is my proudest day!


You should profile Varane – I have him at Arsenal and he has some ridiculous stats in his early twenties


Best defender in this year’s game since the update imo. He becomes an absolute god with human management, I have him on my Arsenal save and he’s my best defender already in the first season!
