This FM 2014 player profile of Daniele Rugani shows one of the best cheap central defenders in FM14. At just short of £1 million he’s a snatch. The screenshots were provided by Bjork who signed Rugani for Inter and raised the Italian into a rock solid centre back. He’s strong, great defensively, reasonably quick and brilliant mentally, an all round stopper.

For just £2 million you could have a consistent performer at any level and remember he’s only 23 in the images above, well short of a defenders peak age so I’d expect more growth yet.

    Quality bargain! Question to Wayne, why did he only get 13 games in the second season? Was it due to injury or he just wasn’t first choice at that point?
    I also have plans to start a career with Bolton, I can already see myself bidding for Rugano and Campbell…I might have to try find some other bargains to make my save a bit different to yours.

    • comment avatar RadicalEd December 11, 2013

      I did a Bolton game and signed Milosevic and rugani as CDs. Very Solid defense (although Rugani needs some time to grow) for a ridiculously low fee

  • comment avatar King December 11, 2013

    I’m not sure that CA is right…

  • comment avatar Wayne December 11, 2013

    As Ed said, he is a late bloomer and through my save never got the wonderkid description. Premiership games are much more brutal and they force you to use your more experienced players.
    I highly recommend stefan strandberg if you need a good mid-table defender though. Somehow produces av ratings of 7.5 and above dating back to fm12 and costs around 325k. My first signing every save.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 11, 2013

      Never tried Strandberg, surprising little player by the sounds of it but he does have well rounded attributes.

  • comment avatar Mike Tiffin December 11, 2013

    i bought Strandberg for my Man Utd save on FM 12, he was immense his 1st season average was 8.50, thereafter was betwwen 7.50 and 9 every season

    May I know what exactly is CA/PA ? Would be nice if your could explain in detail. Thanks in advance

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 8, 2014

      CA is a players current ability. It is a figure out of 200 to indicate how good a player is and how good his attributes will be. PA is the same idea but represents how good they could be and can also be flexible for some youngsters.

  • comment avatar DrunkenMonkey January 9, 2014

    Then , what is the PA: – 9 (150-180) ? What is the -9 ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 9, 2014

      A google search will explain all this in more detail. But as I mentioned some players have flexible ability, those minus figures represent the flexible ability. So -10 means a player will start with potential of 170 to 200, varying from save to save…so on and so fourth.

  • comment avatar mario January 15, 2014

    concentration went from 10 to 19 … not possible…… am i missing something?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 15, 2014

      With the right tutoring which he had in that save he can improve that area drastically, as can any CB with good PA. I have him with 15 concentration in my save without tutoring him so its not that bigger a deal, I wasn’t surprised TBH.

  • comment avatar dzunglv May 3, 2014

    Totally agree with Mario, actually I intend to comment the same. Concentration from 10 to 19, unbelievable. Worth a try, huh

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 3, 2014

      What is the ‘worth a try, huh’ meant to mean? Going from 10 to 19 concentration is not impossible…if his flexible potential is maxed out and the development goes well it is possible.

      • comment avatar dzunglv May 3, 2014

        Thanks for telling, Darren

        Well I meant I will try training him in my save. He has promising potential rating, also is at bargain price, but what made me worry is his low Concentration. Since I see this thread, I will get him in and give him some starting games next season.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith May 3, 2014

          Ah, I see. He’s well worth looking at. I can completely see why people would be sceptical on the concentration front, but if all the conditions are perfect it can happen, thats why some peps struggle to believe the jump…because it happens so rarely.
