It is the list that every Football Manager gamer craves. The very best FM 2021 young talents, sorted by position, value, potential and age.
Just to clarify, the 'Wonderkids' listed who have the expected high prospects in the latest version of the game are under the age of 22. While some of the players listed have what is known as flexible potential ability and can vary from save to save.
Nov 30, 2020 Hi, This is the best one striker tactic that I've tried in FM21 so far. Good work, Zealot Here's my results with Sevilla - pred. 4th I easily won La Liga with 97 points. FM Base are a long serving community in the Football Manager scene. Like most old communities we have had our ups and downs but we've always got through everything as a family. Whether you are looking for a short-term save (ideal for the FM21 beta) or a longer term challenge with the goal of turning these one-season wonders into regular title contenders or even champions of their respective leagues - either way it should be both a challenge and an entertaining journey trying to emulate these team’s past glories. Nov 23, 2020 This 4-3-3 tactic was the first I have created this game and have already managed to go the whole season unbeaten with Leicester. Alongside some brilliant signings, (Donnarumma - Free, Dembele - Free and Edouard, £21m), I maintained the talent of the squad (Soyuncu, Tielemans, Ndidi and Maddison). Check Leicester (England) in Football Manager 2021 (FM21). Including potential and rating from the best players and talents.
So, with help from Football Manger Stories, we have compiled a comprehensive list of the top potential the newly released game has on offer.
Kicking off with the man between the sticks. The 16-year-old Alejandro Iturbe from Atletico Madrid is certainly terrific value at just £115,000 and with his best years ahead of him.
Other keepers to look out for would be Belgium's Maarten Vandevoordt, who clearly has the potential to be the next Thibaut Courtois and Real Madrid's Andriy Lunin also represents good value for money.
Young and upcoming centre backs to look out for aside from the obvious Matthijs de Ligt would be RB Leipzig's Dayton Upamenco, who certainly has all the physical attributes to be an impressive acquisition.
While Ibanez at Roma would also represent an affordable alternative, valued at just £5.75 million.
Right Full Backs
In the right-back slot, while the top four mentioned in this list maybe difficult to prise away from their respective clubs, the likes of Takehiro Tomiyasu at Bologna and Gabriel Menino from SEP in Brazil would certainly represent exciting investments for the future.
Left Full Backs
For left back I would certainly look at trying to acquire Noah Katterbach at FC Koln as well as Nuno Mendes, who looks a terrific buy at just 18 years of age.
Moving on to the holding midfield, otherwise known as the 'Claude Makelele' role.
I would have a go at acquiring Marco Kana from Anderlecht as again he represents strong value for money as well as the more affordable Martin Calderon at Real Madrid.
In attacking midfield you would certainly be looking for someone with the potential of good technical and passing qualities.
With this in mind, the likes of Mason Mount from Chelsea and Jude Bellingham, who in real life has just been called up to the England squad, would not cost too much and certainly have the potential to develop into quality all-round options.
The attacking midfield market is saturated with high quality talent, all of whom are capable of driving your team forward and into the future.
Barcelona's 17-year-old Pedri looks like a guaranteed homerun while the likes of Giovanni Reyna and Lee Kang-In could represent some fantastic cut-price options.
On the right hand side, Yusuf Demir from Rapid Vienna, certainly looks an easier option to acquire then some of the other names listed, as does the aforementioned Lee Kang-In at Valencia.
There are certainly more affordable options than that of Jadon Sancho in this top 10. Jeremy Doku at Rennes is a name that immediately jumps out as does Real Betis' Diego Lainez, both of whom, in time, could be developed into fine wingers.
Finally the crucial position of centre forward. Both Sebastian Esposito at Inter Milan and Amine Gouiri represent good potential buys for the future.News Now - Sport News
Leicester are certainly seen as a team that are amongst the ‘best of the rest’ clubs in England. After an unbelievable underdog story in winning the 2015/16 season, Jamie Vardy and co have continued to keep their place in the Premier League, and have slowly and surely begun a rise in the table once again.
At the beginning of the 2019/20 season, Leicester are predicted to finish 7th by the media (a rather accurate prediction considering they ended up 5th), and the core of the squad is strong. Vardy, Maddison, and Chilwell alone could help most teams to a top 6 finish in the Premier League, but on FM things seem to turn sour after a few years.
If you’ve managed in England in Football Manager 2020, you’ll notice that Leicester really begin to struggle, and by 2024, they’re quite often in the Championship, and on the decline.
With that said, here are the reasons I believe Leicester are a club you should consider taking the reigns of in Football Manager 2020 and/or Football Manager 2021.
1. They are strong competition for the top 4
Leicester’s starting squad, as we all know, has a lot of quality throughout the whole team, with maybe just a couple of weak spots on the wings. Chilwell and Pereira are a brilliant full back pairing, and being most comfortable in full back attack, they both create and score goals throughout the season. Evans and Soyuncu are solid enough at the back, though you wouldn’t be blamed for wanting to bring in a new centre back (Thilo Kehrer is always available for £3.9m if you’re uncreative, or you could try and persuade the board to bring in one of the endless up and coming French centre backs).
The board have given you £30m for your first transfer window, which for what I’m used to, is practically an endless pit of gold. Unfortunately you only have about 75k in the wage budget, so you might want to shift the budget around a bit, as you can definitely get away with only making a couple of signings. I added Said Benrahma, Malang Sarr and Rashica (once his work permit was sorted) to the squad, not being so creative myself, but thinking of the future knowing what can happen.
Try adding a couple of players for the future to your squad, keep the core, and see how you fare against the big six and the rest of the league.

2. Honouring a legend
Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha loved Leicester, and Leicester loved Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. His untimely loss in the tragic helicopter accident on the 27th October 2018 left a hole that his son was given to fill. The players’ loyalty to Vichai and his King Power legacy has really spurred on the Leicester squad to push on to become the ‘best of the rest’.
In Football Manager 20, the squad doesn’t seem to have the same reaction. After a couple of years Vardy decides to retire, and the money they’re able to get for Maddison (and Chilwell and Pereira more often than not), is not exactly used successfully, and they end up dropping off to near the bottom of the Premier League within four to five years.
It seems quite unfair to see this happen to Leicester. They’re a team that almost no one can hate, and it’s certainly not fun seeing them drop off after they’ve become such a strong squad in real life. I believe everyone should take up the hot seat at Leicester City to make sure they are where they belong for the foreseeable future. You will have the backing of Vichai’s son and the King Power dynasty. It seems strange that they do go down to the lower leagues, but your goal is to make sure the opposite happens.
3.Cashing in on the big guns and move on from the squad of 2015/16
Whilst I have suggested holding on to the core of the squad, I believe your best route into asserting Leicester into the top of the table is by selling a few of the big guns to have the budget to strengthen all around. Your main money makers being Maddison, Tielemans, and possibly Chilwell if you want to make a big change to the squad. Cash in on these after a season, they’ll all have a lot of years left on their contracts, and if you have a successful first season, they’ll bring in the big bucks, allowing for a large investment across the whole team.
Meanwhile, it is also necessary to move on from the emphatic squad of 2015/16. Of course you’ve already lost Mahrez and Kante (and the big man Danny Drinkwater), but a lot of the players are still there, taking a chunk of your wage budget. Get them gone in summer 2020; Fuchs, Morgan, Marc Albrighton, and Schmeichel are definitely not the players for the future. With them off the wage bill, your second summer transfer window could be huge.
Bring in those wonderkids if possible (my top suggestions being Fabio Silva and Billy Gilmour if he doesn’t flop in your save), get King Power to improve the youth facilities, get Leicester ready to fight for the league.
4.Repeating Ranieri’s heroics
My final reason behind why you should consider managing Leicester is the enjoyment of trying to repeat Ranieri’s heroics in 2015/16.
Sure, you’ll never be tipped at 5000/1 to win the league again, but you’ll certainly need more than 81 points to do it. Can you create a squad strong enough to overcome the giants of Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea? Do you have the skills to recreate the tale of a beautiful underdog story? You won’t know until you try.
