Football Manager has returned for another season and, as ever, the race is on to unearth the best wonderkids in the game.
Every player faces a tough decision as they begin their virtual managerial career: do you start with a rich super-club such as Manchester United or Real Madrid, or do you instead try and lead a much more modest club up the football pyramid?
If you choose the latter option then you’re going to need to become an expert in the transfer market – and you’re almost certainly going to need to pick up a wonderkid or two on the cheap.
A wonderkid is a player aged 20 or below who has the potential to go on and become a world-class player in the game.
There are the usual recognisable names in our list – such as AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé and Atlético Madrid’s João Félix – but also some youngsters with a much smaller profile. Snap them up early, and they could help take your team to the next level.
