Our Wonderkids to watch were undervalued in FM20 but progressed significantly through 2019. We try to avoid obvious options and in years gone by suggested Milinkovic-Savic and Predrag Rajkovic well before the vultures descended. Who are you backing to impress in the new game?
FM 2021 Goalkeeper Wonderkids To Watch
Signed by Borussia Dortmund from Bochum in 2016, Unbehaun is an unknown entity to all but youth team enthusiasts. Capped at U18 level for Germany Luca is yet to make his first team debut but has featured in the UEFA Youth League.
Unbehaun is expected to join a long list of illustrious, German Sweeper Keepers and we expect Sports Interactive to boost those stats come Winter.
FM 2021 Centre Back Wonderkids To Watch
Perr Schuurs | Ajax | 20 years old
Playing first team Football since the tender age of just 16, Schuurs was made captain of Fortuna Sittard at 17 after 41 appearances before moving to Ajax in 2018.
Signed as a potential replacement for De Ligt, elite clubs including Liverpool are rumoured with interest. I am surprised by his -8 potential rating in FM20 and expect an increase for 2021.
FM21 Right Full Back Wonderkids To Watch
Vinícius Augusto | Internacional | 16 years old
Augusto is a 16 year old attacking wing back capped at U16 level for Brazil. A true technician boasting raw speed and power Vinicius could feature as a winger such is his attacking flair. For such a tender age Augusto reads the game well and could be likened to the great Cafu.
Media links from Man City to Bayern and Real Madrid only strengthen this wonderkids claims to feature in FM 2021, lets hope any such move is held off until after release.
FM2021 Left Full Back Wonderkids To Watch
Aaron Hickey | Hearts | 17 years old
As Andrew Robertson fled bonny Scotland to progress his career, Hickey will surely do the same. Despite his tender years Aaron started for Hearts in the Scottish Cup final and scored his first senior goal in the Edinburgh Derby.
Copious links include Manchester City and Arsenal but lets hope none come to fruition. We have waited years for an affordable, world class full back and Hickey should be one of the very best FM 2021 Wonderkids.
Domagoj Bradaric | Lille | 19 years old
We could see an increase in quality full backs for FM21 and Domagoj should make that list. Awarded a mediocre -8 potential rating this year, Bradaric has since made 18 appearances for Lille including numerous Champions League starts.
Bursting onto the scene in Croatia during 2018/19 the young 19 year old has gone from strength to strength and could rival Hickey as the prospect to watch out for.
FM 2021 Defensive Midfield Wonderkids To Watch
Daniel Cabral | Flamengo | 18 years old
Cabral is an 18 year old holding, Defensive Midfielder in the same mould as the legendary Dunga. Plying his trade in Brazil Cabral has notched up a combined 13 appearances at U16 and U17 level but yet to feature for club side Flamengo.
An intelligent, tactically aware DMC with great tackling, passing and vision Cabral could see a drastic potential ability increase for FM 2021. Daniel helped Brazil lift the U17 world Cup in 2019 playing a vital role as the anchor of an offensive looking 4-2-3-1.
FM21 Central Midfield Wonderkids To Watch
Xavi Simons | PSG | 17 years old
Schooled in Barcelona’s famed Academy the aptly named Xavi signed for PSG during 2019. Represented by Mino Raiola, Simons is a popular lad on social media boasting 2.4 million Instagram followers.
Capped at U15, U16 and U17 level for the Netherlands Simons is destined for greatness and should recieve a whopping PA increase from the meager -7 (110-140) Football Manager awarded this year.
FM21 Attacking Midfield Wonderkids To Watch
Catalin Cirjan | Arsenal | 17 years old
A two footed, midfield maestro Catalin Cirjan signed for Arsenal last Summer after catching the eye. He boasts the remarkable record of playing first team Football at just 10 years of age in the Romanian 4th tier, before progressing to the third tier just three years later.
With great vision and ability on the ball Cirjan can commit defenders and could be Romania’s most talented prospect. Catalin could step inside the boots Ianis Hagi failed to fill.
FM 2021 Wonderkid Right Wingers To Watch
The U17 World Cup highlights top talent and Gabriel Veron is no exception. His beautiful displays and Golden Ball winning performance contributed 3 goals and 2 assists during Brazil’s 2019 winning competition.
Named after Juan Sebastien Veron, Gabriel netted twice in just his second Palmeiras appearance. Cross your fingers and toes for a quiet Summer, Veron could be an affordable superstar come FM21 release.
Dario Sarmiento | Estudiantes | 17 years old
Sarmiento is a dynamic, quick winger boasting great ball control and the ability to attack inside with venom. Known for his quick feet and unpredictability Dario plays for Estudiantes making 5 appearances for the first team in 19/20.
Listed as an attacking midfielder in FM20 we expect the 17 year old to be natural from the right in Football Manager 2021 and one of the best young prospects capable with his left foot. Argentine wonderkids tend to be cheap during the opening weeks so act fast and scout this kid ASAP.
FM 2021 Wonderkid Left Wingers To Watch
Kai Kennedy announced himself to Scottish Football with 2 assists from 7 Challenge Cup appearances for Ranger’s second team in 19/20 but is yet to receive his first team debut. At 18 years old he possesses great pace and a direct dribbling style enabling him to cut inside from the left wing.
A flair player, Kai is technically endowed which can cost his teammates defensively. Glasgow Rangers academy is on the rise once more and we expect to see many more in Kennedy’s mould feature come FM 2021’s release.
FM21 Wonderkid Strikers To Watch
Jhon Duran | Envigado FC | 16 years old
Like his FM16 Christian namesake, Jhon Arango, Duran is an unknown Colombian entity at just 16 years of age and a risky inclusion to our list. Yet early reports beam of Duran’s Athleticism, power and end product. Arango plays for Envigado and is described as a classic number 9 and part of the Colombia U17 setup.
An all round forward Duran can score with his head or in behind and even link up play. Making his professional debut at the age of 15 and becoming Colombia’s 2nd youngest top flight goal scorer has created quite the stir.
Pablo Moreno | Juventus | 18 years old
Yet another product of La Masia, Moreno is capped for Spain at U16, U17 and U18 level. Joining Juventus in 2018 Pablo impressed during the UEFA Youth league with 4 goals from 3 appearances including this delicate chip against Atletico Madrid.
Moreno was discovered at 8 years of age by Granada coach, Javier Mahia, who told Marc; “He had self-confidence, quality, was very good in one-on-one situations, had an eye for goal and he always made good decisions.” Many claim it is only a matter of time before Moreno breaks into the Juve first team.
