Screen%20Shot%202015-10-30%20at%2016.30.16_zpsnmajh8ln.png

Name: Enzo Roco

Age: 22

Nationality: Chilean

Club: Espanyol

Position: CB

Value: £3.2m

Sale Value: £6.25m - £8.25m (I had a bid of £7m accepted straight away)

Work Permit Needed?: Yes, but should be approved

Top Physicals for a young player, he's reasonably quick, immensely strong and has very good stamina. He's also an excellent header of the ball (with good jumping), and has 16 ratings for marking and tackling. He seems to be a very well rounded young centre back who has solid potential to improve further. Also, with a potential sale value of <£10m he could be a top buy for any top division club. The absolute maximum he's going to cost is £13.75m due to his release clause, so looks a very good buy for a top club in need of a solid young defender.

Name: Mayke

Position: DR/WBR

Age: 22

Club: Cruzerio

Nationality: Brazil

Sale Value: 4.4m

Wages: 26k per week (can be more depending on interest)

Work Permit: Gets it

Other: I really like this guy after my FM15 save, and he's no different on FM16. I actually bought him in as my replacement for Lichtsteiner, and I don't regret it - he's basically my first name on the teamsheet

Name: Eder Balanta

Position: DLC

Club: River Plate

Nationality: Colombia

Sale Value: 2.9m

Wages: 12k per week

Work Permit: Gets it

Other: Do I really need to sell this guy? He got a massive nerf after FM15, he's basically at peak now. Coaches rate him similarly to Gabriel (from Arsenal), although can be injury prone. Might not be reliable enough to start consistently in the prem, but should be a capable backup for top teams

Name: Marc Bartra

Club: DRC

Nationality: Spanish

Sale Value: £8million!

Wages: 60k plus

Work Permit: no

Other: Min Release fee of just £8million...

Must buy for all top 4 sides.

I was doing a test save with Man City and tried signing him. He accepted Barcelona's offer of a new contract, and even when I tried reloading an earlier save and offering him higher wages than Barca had offered he still turned me down. You might have to get silly on the wage offerings to lure him which would somewhat negate the money saving clause.

Although you could probably sell him for a huge profit in next couple of transfer windows regardless of wages if you did manage to attract him...

Emanuel%20Mammana_%20Overview%20Attributes_zpslqykcqax.png

Name: Emanuel Mammana

Age: 19

Nationality: Argentinean

Club: River

Position: DC (Competent at DR too)

Value: Can't remember but I think it is about £2 million at game start.

Sale Value: I got him for £4.8 million, most of which was spread over 36 months. Scouts thought I could have got him a bit cheaper, so presumably if you offer up front you might get him for less.

Work Permit Needed?: Yes, but he gets it on the first try.

Last year he was a

-9 PA

, and he seems to be the same this season judging by scout reports. I signed him for Man City and sent him out on loan to Crystal Palace, who made him an important first team player. Given the relatively low cost and wages, he'd be a great signing for just about any top division club that can attract him.

----------------------------------------------------

Ludwig%20Augustinsson_%20Overview%20Attributes_zpswuivex5g.png

Name: Ludwig Augustinsson

Age: 21

Nationality: Swedish

Club: FC Kobenhavn

Position: DL/WBL/ML

Value: £1.8 million

Sale Value: Haven't tried yet, although scouts thought he'd be available for between £1.8m and £3.5m with wage demands of £20,000-£40,000 per week.

Work Permit Needed?: Nope.

Scouts gave him 3.5 star potential with Man City. I doubt he'll be world class but he looks very solid for the money required, a decent first season investment for most top flight clubs even if just as a profit turner.

----------------------------------------------------

Reece%20Oxford_%20Overview%20Attributes_zpsxs3qys1a.png

Name: Reece Oxford

Age: 16

Nationality: English

Club: West Ham

Position: DC/DM

Value: £500k ish

Sale Value: He's available for £1.1m compensation at game start as he is only on a youth deal.

Work Permit Needed?: Nope.

Scouts absolutely raved about his potential with Man City so I'm going to guess that he's a

-9 PA

. Good luck getting him to sign though - he rejected £5k per week plus insane bonuses with Man City in favour of a £850 per week contract with West Ham on my save! Worth keeping an eye on his development though.

Name: Petar Stojanovic

Age: 20

Nationality: Slovenian

Club: Maribor

Position: RB

Value: ?

Sale Value: £1.7ish

Work Permit Needed?: No, Slovenian.

20 year old right back has pretty solid stats for the Prem already, cheap and decent potential, good signing for bottom half sides / good cover option.

Anyone seen a decent teenage CB for under a few million?

A Bastioni (Atalanta) for 500k (or that much in compensation)

seems more of a left back, but can play at DC

or if not managing in the UK (because he doesn't get a WP)

S Vegas from Audax (2.1m, similar PA to Mertesacker)

Name: Patrick Farkas

Age: 22

Nationality: Austrian

Club: SV Mattersburg

Position: DR, WBR, DM

Sale Value: 1m

Wages: 11k per week

Work Permit: Not needed

Other: Found this guy purely by accident (their manager looks like a decent coach fyi) and looks like a handy guy for the Championship/Lower Prem. Rowley reckons he has room to improve (despite being close to maxed on stars).

Edit: His anticipation is 10 btw. Found on a large database with solely English Premier League loaded

Work Permit Needed?: Yes but has 44 caps despite his youth.

Notes: Extremely solid left-footed centre-back for the price.

Name: Ionut Nedelceanu

Age: 18

Nationality: Romanian

Club: Dinamo Bucharest

Position: DC/DMC

Value: £58k

Sale Value: Around £200k

Just be warned, Mayke doesn't always get his WP. Just failed on my current save. Signed him anyway and will loan him out till we get chance to appeal again.

not sure on any details of these, other than their clubs (neither have dual nationality, so unlikely to get WPs)

pity really, as they both look Cedric Soares-esque

this kid played well for Portugal U20 in world cup

good for mid - lower championship team and for the money £160k at game start is well worth it

Does he have high PA or something? Looking at his attributes I wouldn't even start him in League 2:eek:

The kid's got some outstanding attributes but some pretty serious weaknesses. Out of curiosity, what's his disciplinary record like? His aggression to composure/decisions ratio and fondness for diving into tackles surely makes him well-known to referees?

Yeah his first ever game for us in the cup he got sent off after 2 yellows.

During 2016/2017 he had 7 yellows and 1 red in 10 games.

During 2017/2018 he's had 1 yellow in 5 games at competitive level.

Despite his age and obvious weaker physicals, hes got immense mental and technical attributes. rated 3.5 stars with leicester at start.

Position: CB (DM)

Value: 140k

Sale Value: 275k

Work Permit: No

Good For: High End Championship / Lower Premier League

2roi61w.png

When you have no money and 2 CB's at your club with the PPM "Gets forward whenever possible" finding a cheap gem like this is great. Rated at 4 star potential he looks decent already, some focussed training and he will be good I think.

Can't argue for that money.

Name: Nei

Club: Vasco

Nationality: Brazilian

Position: D/WB RL

Cost: 110k

Work Permit: Not needed (EU dual nationality)

Other: Has performed pretty well for my premiership side, despite the lowly price tag

Isn't rated that well by coaches/scouts, but is a solid allrounder

I signed him as a non-continental side, so will probably go some way down

Age: 27

Nationality: Brazilian

Club: Cruzeiro

Position: DC

Value: Around 5 million (goes upto 7.5 million when signed)

Dede has been my go to defender for a few FMs now, stats in the right places, does a great job even at the top sides who expect to win leagues and champions league.

Signed for Southampton.

His name popped up on a scouting report of Argentina just as my 1st choice left back got crocked for 4 weeks so decided to take a closer look. Excellent stamina and natural fitness, think he should be able to do a job for my Newcastle team.

I've been really impressed with these 2 young defenders on my Wolves save.

Name: Kortney Hause

Age: 20

Nationality: English

Club: Wolverhampton Wanderers

Position: DC/LB

Value: £4.9M (for me at the minute, 6 games in)

Sale Value: I would guess you could maybe get him for £6-£7mil?

Name: Dominic Iorfa

f3abad99096f4e79290e2a56399f663c.png

Despite their age I have both of them playing as my CB's and they've been holding together really well. Looking forward to the future with this CB pairing, unless a bigger club come and snatch them away :(

Random question, but does anyone have any experience of David Limbersky on FM16? 32, currently playing at Viktoria Plzen. I'm Stoke and my scouts are going wild for him, telling me to sign at any cost. All the right stats in the all the right places, and in January of season 1 you can sign him on a Bosman, so i did. Just wondered if anyone had used him in this version as i'm hoping he can give me 2 solid seasons at left back (starting or cover, depends who i manage to sign in the off season).

Signed him for Celtic in FM14 and FM15. Was good going forward, but only decent w/ defensive duties. If I recall, his wage demands were quite reasonable.

I'm in 2nd season with AC Milan

Need good CB to pair with Romagnoli. Age doesn't matter

My team mostly conceded from through ball and cross

Budget under €50m

Any advice?

is Laporte's Release Clause under that? (if he hasn't moved)

if so, highly recommend

Just finished my first season with Wolves and these two are staples of the backline. Iorfa I played as left sided CB (Batth on right side) and he finished the season with 6 goals, 2 assists and an average rating of 7.24 from 37 games. Hause I rotated to the same position and also played him for a stint at left back. He got 2 goals, 2 assists, 1 PoM and average rating of 7.15 from 30 games.

See how they fair in the Prem...
