Riccardo Saponara career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Riccardo Saponara shows a very skillful, versatile playmaker who can score goals and assist from just behind the striker. During my test save Saponara developed good technical skills, with well rounded physical stats and some very good flair and creativity. He starts the game fairly strong and could be used in rotation from the off. Because you could offer game time straight away I think this kid would be easy to develop and with good human management should definitely exceed these screenshots.
£8 million is a lot for some budgets but the top teams should definitely consider this talent if creativity is required, alternatively I think his price may drop with some luck after a few seasons.
