FM14 Wonderkids To Watch – Hachim Mastour
written by Darren Smith
Club: AC Milan (Serie A, Italy)
The boys a bit like: Messi, Zidane, Kaka and Riquelme
Mastour signed for AC Milan aged just 14 from Reggiana. The Italian giants paid an age appropriate record fee of 500,000 euros. Nothing short of that would do as bitter rivals had taken the young gun on loan and tracked the FM14 wonderkid since the age of 10. It is reported that Europe’s elite including Real, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City were interested in Mastour, some clubs even offered to find the kids parents accommodation and a job.
This Football Manager 2014 wonderkid operates just behind the striker, Mastour can create magic with fast feet and an ability to do things with the ball that few others would even dream of.
While there’s very little data on Mastour’ record at youth level, we do know he scored on his debut for the Italian U15’s. An incredible 20 yard strike followed the most sublime display of skill, it was this performance, aged just 14 that got everyone excited. Just watch the video below, you’ll see why we’re touting this kid as the FM 2014 best wonderkid.

What should we expect from this Football Manager 2014 wonderkid? From what I’ve read and watched (which is a lot) Mastour should have incredible potential ability. SI should maybe set this as flexible to represent how some kids can fail to fulfill their promise, but there should be few players with more potential.
Key attributes will surely be dribbling, flair, creativity and technique, come on Sport Interactive, don’t let us down. ;)
