Zakaria Bakkali career history until 2022
This FM 2015 player profile of Zakaria Bakkali shows a great young talent, a wonderkid that most of you already know from the previous versions of the game. You can get him for 8 million at the start of the game, I don’t think that the price would drop in the future. However, you should be aware of the fact that his contract with PSV expires at the end of the first season, so you might be able to snap him up on a free transfer.
In my test save Chelsea pounced on the opportunity and grabbed him on a free transfer, then sent him out on loan all over Europe before selling him for almost 15 million to AC Milan. His second season in Italy was pretty good and then Real Madrid bought him, but only to keep him on the bench for most of the season.
Overall he didn’t have the happiest of careers in my test save but he still managed to develop great technique, good speed and agility and also decent finishing. I think he can become way better than this under proper guidance.
