Ross Barkley career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Ross Barkley shows one of the best young attacking midfielders in the game, a youngster with great potential. He is already good enough to play in the Premier League at the age of 19 but his potential can make him a real star both in Football Manager 2014 and in real life. Such talent doesn’t come cheap though, you’ll have to pay 25 million to get him at the start of the game.
In my test save Arsenal bought him for 27 million but didn’t give him much game time. Despite that he still developed pretty well, solid physique, good mental attributes and excellent technique on the ball. With more game time he surely can develop a lot better than this, a great attacking midfielder for any top team. If you can snatch him from Everton for less than 10 million then you got yourself a great bargain.
