Leon Goretzka career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Leon Goretzka shows a versatile playmaker with creativity and great passing complimented by good all round ability. Most midfielders are either attacking or defensive orientated, they have set trademarks to their game, but this kid is different. Goretzka has special versatility, just look at the future screenshots above. In 2020 this kid has great passing, technique and creative skills. Then his key defensive and attacking attributes are around the 14 and above mark.
Real Madrid couldn’t resist the young German in 2016, they payed £24 million and Goretzka performed well throughout his career in Spain. I think he’s a great signing, but the £41.5 million Schalke request at the start of the game shows just how much work SI need to do on the realism of asking prices…this will drop significantly as the game goes on.
