This FM 2014 player profile of George Thorne shows a very talented young English midfielder, one that can become a top class regista or playmaker in Football Manager 2014. West Brom are willing to let him go for 10 million at the start of the game and I think that is a pretty good price considering his potential.
In my test save he developed nicely and his good performances for WBA brought him a transfer to Manchester United. He really showed his worth at Old Trafford, providing quite a few assists and some goals as well. Thorne even managed to become a regular in the England national team.
His mental attributes developed very well while his numbers on the physical side are also pretty good. Also with 17 for passing he should do a world of good in midfield, adding solid technique and decent tackling as well. Last but not least he is “natural” both as DM and MC.
