Mateo Kovacic career history until 2021
The FM 2016 player profile of Mateo Kovacic shows one of the best central midfielders in the game, a real star in the making. Buying him at the start of the game is not an option since he has just moved from Inter to Real, but he should be available in the future if he fails to adapt in Spain.
Arsenal got him for 34.5 million pounds in my test save after a couple of unconvincing seasons at Real. He did a lot better in England though, probably Arsenal’s system suited him more.
He developed excellent attributes for a playmaker: pinpoint passing, excellent technique and first touch, along with great vision. Should be a great addition to any squad.
