Balde Keita career history until 2021
The FM 2016 player profile of Balde Keita shows a very talented young forward, capable of making it at the highest level of European football. Lazio will most likely try to hold him for as long as possible but at some point I reckon he will ask to move on to a better club.
In my test save he moved to Marseille before taking an even bigger step for a bigger transfer fee at Manchester United. He hasn’t scored as many goals as I would have expected him to, but his average ratings were decent.
He developed very well on the physical side, and also managed to refine his technique. He has a natural ability to play both on the left wing and as a central striker, with a bit of work he could become a deadly poacher.
