Verratti turns out very well on the game. Currently got a transfer value of about £10 million on my West Ham game 4-5 years in. Brilliant in AMC.

Man Utds back line is an enviable future defence…maybe a bit obvious

Da Silva Twins…Phil Jones and Smalling….

Sam Magri of pompey looks decent…dont know how he progress tho…

Hey, I found a second guy that looks immense that you don’t have on here…Name is “Tiago Ilori”. He’s a central defender.

He starts with Sporting. He currently is 4 stars for me and is a rock in my defence. A truly amazing player. Definitely worth looking at.

After all the cheap players are done any chance of a profile of Gabriel Torje from udinese, branded as next Messi but just wondered if he will hit those heights to make the original outlay of c£13m worth it.

Cheers and keep up the excellent work!!

Probs one that you know about but Branescu, young Romanian keeper from Juventus, just finished first season and signed him for £1.3m after some good displays and scouting reports. May not grow into world beater but any chance of profile to see if he has potential to be a top keeper or if he is just an average/good keeper (then i can go home and sack my scout as i never like to trust them!haahaa

May be an obvious choice for some but I signed Douglas Costa for around £12 for Napoli. Player of the season behind Cavani. Great buy

Iker Muniain? Javi Martinez? Jon Aurtenetxe? Perhaps Bilbao would want too much money for them?

I’m starting a Bilbao challenge and enjoying all of this talented youth at my disposal. Keep up the good work Darren and company! This list is ace when I can sign non-Basque players!

Hi Darren,

Well done for this list … great job – keep updating as it’s great :)

I am trying to buy an AM. Actually I found list very useful … I though encountered with 3 AM which definetely should consider having in your list. Refer to underneath:

Ganso – Brazilian
Montillo – Argentinian
Wilshere – English

They all seem to be awesome prospective stars! I have though still undecided yet of which to buy so the update of the above would be much appreciated.

cheers
Johann

or Kevin De Bruyne (genk) – for some reason doesn’t always appear in the game for me, which is strange as I always have a large database loaded.
