This FM 2015 player profile of Eder Alvarez Balanta shows one of our favourite wonderkids from the previous edition of the game, an awesome young central defender. Moreover, he comes at a very reasonable price at the start of the game, if you have a bit of money in your transfer kitty buying this kid right away is an obvious choice.

In my test save he joined Borussia Dortmund in 2015 and then made a big-money move to Juventus in 2018. He didn’t have such a good time in the Bundesliga but he made up for the lost time in the Serie A, his average ratings through three full seasons speak for themselves. His profile in October 2021  shows a central defender with perfect marking, solid heading and tackling, very good speed and strength and also top notch mental attributes. With 20 for marking and 19 for positioning I guess he can make you feel very safe at the back.

    When will the CA / PA be confirmed?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 26, 2014

      Most likely when the full game is released.

  • comment avatar Martin J. October 29, 2014

    Will the CA/PA change when the full game is released?

  • comment avatar Will October 30, 2014

    For now Balanta is still the best DC, both skill and price. Even Balanta’s asking price in FM 15 much cheaper than its asking price in FM 14.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 30, 2014

      I agree, the asking price is half of what it was in FM 14 and he’s still one hell of a player.

  • comment avatar Martin J. October 31, 2014

    Can you do Leon Goretzka, Raheem Sterling and Juan Iturbe next?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 31, 2014

      I can confirm that all those players will get profiles, can’t tell you exactly when though.

  • comment avatar Matty November 10, 2014

    im doing a season with liverpool. ive got manquillo, moreno, sterling, leno, suso, coutinho, verratti and quintero. i’ll send you a pic if their any good.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 11, 2014

      Thanks, please send them.

  • comment avatar Ola November 18, 2014

    This has nothing to do with the player, but a question.. In FM13 you could talk about players in other teams in the press, often leading to them making them selfs imposible in the team and got transferlisted… Can you do this in FM15?? If so, where do you do this, cant find it anywhere…

    Thanks, and good work on a good site!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 18, 2014

      You can find that option in transfer > declare interest.

  • comment avatar Alex November 18, 2014

    Since Martin Odegaard now are in the database will you do a profile over him? And will you do a profile over Hachim Mastour?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 18, 2014

      We’ll most likely do a profile on Odegaard once everybody will have him in their games through the next patch. As for Mastour, the answer is yes.

  • comment avatar vjcsmoke December 5, 2014

    Balanta is a Must-Buy defensive player who can anchor your defense for years to come. Worth every penny and becomes world class as long as you give him first team time which should not be hard to do since he quickly becomes your best central defender. When you get a player who can almost single handedly shut down Bayern’s offense, you know he’s special.

  • comment avatar Tom February 12, 2015

    Hey, thanks for putting this together. I thought you would want to know that a fair few of your player profiles have been stolen by Ross Tewddell part of the editorial team at Whatculture for this article : http://whatculture.com/gaming/10-essential-signings-football-manager-2015.php/11 I’ve not gone through them in detail but noticed a few that were slight alterations on your work and a paragraph taken verbatim in the Humam Tariq write up.

  • comment avatar Clint March 24, 2015

    Hi, I tried to sign Balanta in my every save, however the price River want for him is about £17.5m.
    May i know when is the time to sign Balanta for cheap price?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 24, 2015

      The best time is right at the start of the game.

  • comment avatar Clint March 24, 2015

    I did bid for him at the start of the game, but River ask for £17.5m

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 24, 2015

      Maybe they don’t like your club for some reason, I’ve always been able to negotiate a much lower price for him.

  • comment avatar Clint March 24, 2015

    is it i need to play large database with argentina league to put as playable to get him for £5m?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 24, 2015

      I don’t think that the database set up has an influence on the price, not entirely sure but it’s quite unlikely.

  • comment avatar hilmanali April 15, 2015

    Best defender and cheap price :)

  • comment avatar Will April 27, 2015

    I bought him for $11M (about £6.75M) from River and he is really solid in my team. He played really well in 9 out of 10 matches, though he can make stupid mistakes and played poor in 1 out of 10 matches.
    He also develops really well in my team, even I think he has much better attribute than the pic in this page. I already sent the pic of my Balanta. You can look at it to make sure what I said.

    Btw, I use Lazio in my save and Stefan de Vrij and Onazi also develops really well in my save. Jeronimo Rulli also develops really well too in my save. I already sent the pic of them along with Balanta pic. I think maybe you should consider to put them in the list.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 27, 2015

      Thanks for the screen shots. Onazi will probably get a profile, de Vrij probably not because he’s 22 years old at the start of the game. Same goes for Rulli but since we don’t have many keepers the chances of a profile are higher in his case.

  • comment avatar Will April 28, 2015

    Well, though maybe de Vrij won’t be able make into best wonderkids list, at least he still can make into best player list at least (though I’m still wondering why Aboubakar, Koke, Carvalho, and Murillo is in best wonderkids list though their age is 22 too at the start of the game).
    Btw, what about Felipe Anderson and Mattia De Sciglio? will they get a profile too?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 28, 2015

      Yes, both should get profiles at some point if they develop well enough in the test saves.

    I signed him for about 6 million in my Wolves save, but I’ve never managed to get a work permit for him. I’ve applied loads of times but it always gets rejected. I’ve sent him out on loan for a season to Germany and he’s playing regularly for Columbia but it still gets rejected every time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
