There are very few feelings better than nurturing a wonderkid from an inexperienced youngster to a world star when playing FM. Wonderkids can come from all corners of the globe, of course. However, certain countries are production factories of talented young players.
One of those countries is Brazil, which constantly produces talented young footballers. Here are some of our favourite Brazilian wonderkids for the latest version of FM:
Endrick (Palmeiras, will join Real Madrid in July 2024)
Many experienced FM players will know all about the forward. The 17-year-old is the worst-kept secret of football in recent years. The versatile forward has the potential to be a top, top player, and many are already raving about the youngster’s ability. He is so talented that he recently won his first Brazilian cap as a substitute in his country’s 2-1 defeat by Colombia in World Cup qualifying.
Unfortunately for FM players, he has already agreed a deal to join Spanish giants Real Madrid in July 2024. Whether that makes him easier or harder to sign is debatable, such is the power and talent available to Los Blancos.
If you can sign him, then his starting attributes are decent, and he quickly develops into a highly impressive world star.
He is another top Palmeiras prospect who is quickly earning himself a reputation as a future star in the club’s youth ranks. At just 16, the young attacking midfielder has the nickname ‘Messinho’ because his playing style is similar to that of the great Lionel Messi.
The versatile attacking midfielder/forward can play anywhere in attack and starts the game with solid attributes for a player who is at such a tender age. He has 13 finishing, flair, and passing, which is impressive for such a young player.
If you sign the youngster at the beginning of the game, he could be a bargain. However, it’s important to note that if you are playing in leagues such as England, he will not be able to join your club until 2025. If you can sign him early and loan him out, he could prove an absolute steal.
Vitor Roque (Atletico PR, joining Barcelona in the summer of 2024)
Like Endrick, Vitor Roque is a wonderkid well known to any recent players of FM. Although he starts the game at Atletico PR in his homeland, a move to Catalan giants Barcelona has already been arranged for the summer of 2024.
The diminutive Roque has already made his international debut for the Selecao and is arguably slightly ahead of Endrick when it comes to development. At 18, Vitor Roque has scored a respectable 33 goals in 93 appearances for Cruzeiro and Atletico PR.
When it comes to young forwards, there are few that can match him for attributes and potential. In previous FM games, he has gone on to become a world star in most saves. Signing him may now be far more difficult and expensive now he has agreed to join Barcelona.
Savio (Girona on loan from Troyes)
The 19-year-old winger has not received the same hype as some players on our list. However, he is a player who has impressed greatly at Girona this season on loan from French outfit Troyes. He has scored four goals in 12 appearances for the Catalan club, who have been the surprise package in the Spanish top-flight.
Unfortunately, due to being on loan at Girona, you can’t sign Savio in the first summer. However, the versatile forward will likely be available for a reasonable fee in the summer of 2024. His starting stats are excellent and will only get better as he matures as a player.
Savio has yet to play for the full national team, unlike some of his compatriots on this list. He has played for the Selecao at youth level, and if he continues his recent form, he will soon be in the full national team set-up.
Luis Guilherme (Palmeiras)
Yes, yet another product of the Palmeiras youth system, Guilherme is another highly-rated young attacking player who looks destined to be a world star in real life and on FM. At 17, Guilherme is already in the Palmeiras first-team squad.
A relatively high price tag highlights Guilherme’s potential, but he can be bought for less than £15m plus future incentives at the start of the game. His stats at the beginning of the game are impressive. For the relatively modest fee, you will get a highly versatile young winger who will only grow and improve.
