Bought him on a Villa save once after Real Madrid bought Young for R25m. He did pretty well, nothing extravagant though. But definitely well worth the buy.

Retrain as AMR and I think he'll be killer. Always one of the first things in FM10 buy JR and Verratti.

He's also a starter in my Porto save. He's tremendous! And don't forget that Porto has another very good AML: Cristian Rodriguez.

Amazing player but his agent's a right ***, asked for £110,000 per week at start of the game.

He was a legend in FM10, looks like he is still fantastic. Great technique, intelligent dribbler, fantastic passer, decent delivery , excellent balance plus agility and not to forget , he's very quick! He's very well rounded, he's even pretty good at tackling and has quite high strength for a flair player. He's a bit like eden hazard and pastore mixed together but a better finisher than hazard and cheaper than pastore (after 1 season u could probs tempt him as he has just joined porto at the start of the game)
Nice screenshots Raikan! :D
BTW, why are u doing a chelsea game. GRRRR traitor! LOL ;D

On FM10 I signed him for Southampton when the was in League 1, (£2.5mill) and kept hold of him all the way to 2018. Become so good, he was my Captain aged 23. Only problem was his Physical stats, his stamina was very poor, and took a while to develop.
Think I eventually sold him for £23million to R.Madrid. So made a nice little profit on him.

Haven't signed him as yet on FM11. Will try and sign him when I gain promotion.
Thanks for reminding me on this guy though, somehow slipped through the fingers and forgot about him!

I think he's been given an PA rise in patch .3 (unless it's -9).
He's a bench player in my save, since he's only 18 and I have Hulk in his natural position (who is AMAZING as an inside forward.)

Might retrain him as a AMR, opinions anyone?

Attack Midfielder - Attack.
Played 25 Scored 14 Assists 9

I started a thread on him last year, porto offered me him for 2 mil on 2011, so i couldn't resist, also hasnt developed on mine yet so those stats are pretty good for first year in the premiership.
