Players from Brazil can't join English clubs until they're 18.

I always scout Brazil for regens when they appear in the teams and sign them on pre-contracts and they join when they're 18.

However when I do this, the team doesn't seem to play them in any games except non-competitive. Is this going to stunt their growth and should I wait until they're 18 to sign them or just sign them on a pre-contract as soon as possible to keep the cost down.
i wondered this aswell, ive still snap them up at 14/15 but purely just to sell them when there around 20 for millions. :p
Buy them as early as possible, they will be fine. I bought 20 Brazilian regens who'd be joining my club about 2-2 and a half years later. They were all rated between 4 and 5 stars PA when I bought them. Now 2 years after they arrived, there are only 3 who arent' well on track to reach their initial potential.
