Also gaetan lefrancois for 1.5m from Harve AC when he was only 15 years old. Looks like he could be the next zidane!

Yeah I think he must be as he has the regen face but I singed him in the first season. Maybe it was in February when the first set of regens came through. 2m for a 15 year old but what a bargain. Looks like he will be a star

IIRC in every save there's some good regens on early save. 

Usually i add 5 nations league at the start, most of them are french,german and spanish regen. You can sign him right away from the early start.

5* on your team but maybe on my team he just 3*.

I usually never considering their potential by judging from the stars.

Well when my team is full of 30-40m players I would say it's  good indicator.

I get your point in general though

yeah but i usually never judge quality by their value btw, IIRC market value is hand in hand with reputation. which is mean that no matter what quality and how high their CA,since they're have good reputation thier value was high. of course their value reflect their quality, but in some case their value doesn't matches their quality.

Yeah class name too for a French midfielder lefrancois :)

if he develops well then judging off them stats at 16 he could be the best attacking mid in the world in 5 years

His driven personality + game time, surely he will develop into a top class.

Yeah I'm looking forward to finding out. Just paid 44m for Hassam Auoar off Lyon as my number 10 but he will be getting plenty of game time off the bench and in cups

A tactic I do at the start of every save is just spend an hour or so browsing through loads of teams and international teams under 19s and picking up the best 15/16 year old prospects for low fees

Pedro from FLU in Brazil is an absolute bargain. Paid £9M rising to £10M with appearance add-ons. His value instantly went for £21M when he signed, and is currently the top scorer in the Premier League for my Wolves team in February with 18 goals in 27 games.

How about these ones ?

2082232244_HichamKhaloua.thumb.PNG.af2d17e394118c25578ded381b22b4cc.PNG

Hicham Khaloua- You can get him for around 1.2 million. Can play inside Winger and Striker,  17 finishing. I'll say he's a bargain

469786625_TimotheeKolodziejczak.thumb.PNG.b90cf0df4940ed6d67e7ffed4de8f82c.PNG

Timothee Kolodziejczak- Physical beast central defender or wing back . 16 marking , 15 tackling , 18 stamina. I think you can get him for under 4 million

861248590_OlimpiuMorutan.thumb.PNG.293b4fd98ccaf9f23ab941f3af1255fc.PNG 

Olimpiu Morutan - Really Solid attacking midfielder. Poor finishing , but overall he's pretty well rounded and has more room to improve. He's also cheap , at the start of the game I think you can get him for around 3 million

1726696207_EnisBardhi.thumb.PNG.5ba5f424827dba1b7aa02e325c69bf82.PNG 

Enis Bardhi - Not exactly a bargain per see , but you can still get him for around 9 million . 19 free kick , 17 long shots , 16 passing , 16 decisions . This guy is a beast

1291540810_IgorZubeldia.thumb.PNG.ef227871c7e737dee7f65a2d69eca111.PNG

Igor Zubeldia - Really good Deep lying midfielder and still has room to improve . Can defend as well. I think you can get him for around 5 million

706029021_MichaelKremncik.thumb.PNG.973c50acfc0cb0da1bf3295f4b8cfbf6.PNG

Michael Kremncik - Solid Complete forward , you can get him for under 4 million.

How did you get Pedro? He didn't get a work permit for me when I tried to take on on loan in the Premier League. Does he only get the work permit if you buy him outright?

I've been a fan of Khaloua over the last couple of versions.  He doesn't seem to improve much so what you see is what you get but he is a very handy player...and the price is right.

Got this gem for free in 2019, signed him to AIK, a is a Swedish top-club. Using him as a CM (AP) And he is an absolute beast. Signed him for a weekly salary of 7.5k (£)1537719966_FootballManager20192018-12-1820_28_37.thumb.png.33aad48f3db88de3da9112d97077da2e.png

Yes! When it comes to players that belong under the umbrella term that is the "hidden gems", it's players like these that are my favorite ones: the one that might get overlooked because your scouts didn't rate them too highly, maybe because they simply estimated that they're quite low in CA/PA ratings :thup:

Yep totally and I think this is what a lot of people forget is that players are far more than their PA/CA - if their attributes match what you need and they perform - they're worth their weight in gold.

Thanks for the great suggestions in here! I've found what looks like an absolute gem playing in the Irish lower division with U.C.D. He'll sign for lower league clubs after he's played a few months with U.C.D, so if you're starting a game in July (like I was with Dundee United) he'll sign straight away.

Got him even with United's meagre budget for about £65K + more in instalments (about £200K all up). He's a left footed right winger as well, hard to find good ones at this level.

Literally came in here to post the same thing. Stats look very good.

Nice :) Some of his stats are random (height, and some technical/physical) but he's consistently quite well balanced!

Farrugia was my primary backup winger to Xadas and Marin in my Blackburn save. Developed into a solid all-around player. got called up and represented Malta though.

All I can say is Antonio Marin. He's been a good backup for me whenever he's got playtime. He's really cheap in the beginning of the game and I'm sure you can get him to almost any club. His stats kinda sucks in the start but he develops really fast, this is a picture from the start of season 3.

Picked him up for 2,3 million pounds, and he is still only 19 years old.

That's great to hear! I'm playing with West Brom right now and he's been superb for all the seasons so far (I am at season 5 now).

Lee Kangin looks a good prospect and is available for about 3.2 millions. Willing to join Championship clubs (asks for about 1-2k p/w wages), don't know about levels lower than that.

Here he is AI developed three seasons in:

Obviously has some random attributes as his passing is 15 in the first screenshot and 11 in the second one, but all in all looks a fine prospect. I should note that he hasn't played one senior appearance for the AI here, so you should be able to get much more out of him.

Haven't seen this lad (Armin Djerlek) mentioned, so thought it might be the place to post - my scouts at Utd have just found him for £750k. Not one I'll buy, but definitely someone to hold onto for future saves:

these two look very promising in my fulham save, both available for 'approach to sign', however ryan doesnt seem interested in a move away from ajax.

Here is one for the lower leagues. 
Gabriel Rosario - Available on a free at the start of the game at 18 years of age. I started him a couple games into the season and never looked back. The screenshot is of him at the start of my 2nd season. We was a huge factor in us winning promotion, while it looks like he conceded a few goals, the defence in front of him was often far from solid and he really kept us in the game. I don't recall him ever having a bad game. His performance are much better than his stats might suggest.

Zak Brown - young striker at Ipswich, cost me 500k for Hearts. He is not a regen, starts at 16yo in the game. I signed him for the 20-21 season, was top scorer in the SPL with 21 in 23 starts, touted as the next Jimmy Greaves!

I guess Fabio Silva has been posted many times here, but this is how he looks in my club after 5 full seasons into the save. I got him for 4.8 million pounds 4 seasons ago. Gogo buy him!

PS. He also won the Champions League for me with two goals.  :)

Great to hear! Just signed him on my Wolves save in February first season for £250k straight up. I thought I might have taken a gamble but I'm getting excited now :)
