icardi stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Mauro Icardi shows a well rounded striker who can score and create chances at any level. The future screnshots above come from a reader, ‘AFCALFC’ in which the striker performed wonders with Ajax. Icardi is a true all rounder, very well balanced technical skills are complimented with monster physical stats and amazing off the ball movement and composure. Maybe best used as an advanced forward, the young Argentine could also play as poacher.

PSG paid 44.5 million Euros for a reason in 2019. The asking price of £40 million is too steep, but that value should drop making him more affordable after a season or two. We can now rate on what this guy can become, thanks to the reader who submitted these screenshots.

    Another quality player, good to see his potential is replicated in FM14 but I think his current ability is a bit harsh on him. Thanks for yet another profile.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 17, 2013

      I don’t know a lot about him in real life, but he does look very talented in FM14.

  • comment avatar cajee October 31, 2013

    Got him! Doing very well, managed to pick him up for just 3mil. I loaned him out to Newcastle and he’s prem’s top scorer I’m looking forward to playing him next season!

    • comment avatar VikingGunner November 20, 2013

      In what season/year were you able to sign him for 3mill? Thanks.

  • comment avatar Tarek Mahmoud Abou Ismail November 5, 2013

    First of all, I’d like to say that your work has been really helpful ever since I found this site and the huge effort you’re doing is hugely appreciated. I found many a player through this site and Im grateful for that. However, if I can add my two cents, I suggest changing the rating system slightly; all players seem to get 9-10 or 8 at the very worst, which makes it hard to “sort out” which are the best for each position and so on. Anyway, I think you should be a bit more strict so only the very best would get these 9-10 ratings (Balanta-Verratti-Pogba etc..) Icardi should get a 6 at best.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2013

      Thanks glad you like the profiles.

      I understand where you are coming from with the ratings but from our point of view a player rated at 6/10 is not a very good player and wouldn’t be profiled, that is how we visualize the ratings, but I know what you mean.

  • comment avatar AFCALFC November 8, 2013

    Screenshots of players you post when they are like 25+, in my game with Ajax they get alot better. For example Icardi got 18 for finishing and i would say he can become one of the best strikers in the game. Got the last 2 season 30+ goals in the competition. So i would rate hem 4.5 star for sure.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 8, 2013

      And most the profiles say they can develop better, we can only rate based on what we see, if you want to send in better screenshots then we can review them.

      • comment avatar AFCALFC November 8, 2013

        [IMG]http://i39.tinypic.com/rmtiy9.png[/IMG] this is icardi in my game, i just sold him for 45 mil to PSG

            Thanks, we can actually use the image in our post if you wouldn’t mind sending us the career history also, then we can up the rating as the evidence will be there.

  • comment avatar AFCALFC November 8, 2013

    http://i42.tinypic.com/r7m7lx.jpg this is the picture of his career history, i will also upload a picture of will hughes and james ward-prowse with some great stats

    • comment avatar AFCALFC November 8, 2013

      you like them? :P

    • comment avatar VikingGunner November 20, 2013

      How are you able to sign Icardi on a free (a year after he is bought for 12.5mill) and ward-prowse for only 650k?
      Just is a little hard to grasp how that occurs, especially given their typical valuations.

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2013

        Both screenshots were from a reader so unless he sees this and replies I don’t know. However icardi’s can be a common occurrence. He is co-owned so sampdoria bought out inters share, but when you buy a share you don’t offer a contract because he already has one and it expires in the year he was bought, happened in one of my saves too.

        However, glancing over the Englishman’s career history he features little for Southampton before moving and doesn’t perform awfully well, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was transfer listed.

        • comment avatar AFCALFC November 20, 2013

          Well i’ll explain, after my first season southampton were relegated so all the players who were unhappy got transferlisted. Thats how i got ward-prowse for 650k and luke shaw for 3.5 mil.
          I got icardi for free because his contract ended at sampdoria, at the same time i also had the choice to get berardi for free but i chose icardi. After that berardi went to inter and then to man city were he became a real beast :P.
          But thats how i got these players

          • comment avatar VikingGunner December 3, 2013

            Thanks for the explanation. Will keep my eye open for the same type of occurrences because they provide some outrageous opportunities. Can only hope I’ll be able to replicate your successes in the transfer market.

  • comment avatar tom December 6, 2013

    Got Icardi, Kovavcic, alfred Duncan from Inter in 2016. For 19mils total

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 6, 2013

      You said 17m in the Alfred Duncan post.

  • comment avatar Malolan .R January 4, 2014

    He simply doesn’t seem to score for me in the EPL. I play him every alternate game and yet he has scored 3 goals in 20 games. Splashed 11.5mil on him.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 4, 2014

      That is frustrating, haven’t tried him myself just yet. But found similar issues with players I would expect to boss it upfront…I guess it depends on the league and tactic too.

      • comment avatar Malolan .R January 5, 2014

        4-2-3-1 ( deep ).

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 5, 2014

          TBH I haven’t been able to get any striker scoring with that formation…its so hard to get working in FM despite its real life popularity.

  • comment avatar Malolan .R January 6, 2014

    Can you suggest any other alternative formations ? And do you think buying Vidal and selling Illaramendi would be a good idea ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 6, 2014

      The flat 4-5-1 can work well if used correctly, but it comes down to what you want from the team really. I’d say swapping those two should work fine yes.

  • comment avatar Malik February 3, 2014

    My favourite player of FM14. Got him on a free from Inter and he scored 100+ goals in three seasons… A gem of a poacher. Although a bit injury prone I must add.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 4, 2014

      He certainly looks handy, I can imagine him and Mitrovic would be formidable.

  • comment avatar Animish February 17, 2014

    Good striker and will score frequently, he can beat the offside trap with ease. But requires game time and proper training, But he is very pricey at the start of the game and better developed strikers can be bought for that kind of money.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 17, 2014

      The price does job though, on two occasions I got him for free, I think its more about waiting for him to fall out of favour or want a move away.

  • comment avatar Edvard Salberg April 13, 2014

    Could you make a profile of Joaquin from Almeria? Massive talent on my game

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 14, 2014

      Doesn’t look like much in my saves unfortunately.
