18 year old Brazilian DC who was on loan at Sociedad last year and showed enough to get him scouted. Reports that came back made stumping up €15m seem like a no brainer. Those stats at 18. View attachment 89142
Did I do well and are they good players to develop. I am aware they're not the most amazing regens or young players but they seemed alright to me, like I said, fairly new to deciding who's an amazing regen.
Just a few top quality guys I have developed in my time as Watford manager.
When I joined the club he was in the reserves and had about 2 1/2 stars with 4 1/2 potential, was 22 as well so thought what a waste of talent, put him straight into the first team and since he has become one of my standout players, over the years I used to play with 3 cams but now I only play with 1 and he is that starting cam, England international as well (this was taken a couple of seasons back but he's still obviously pretty similar attributes wise)
This guy I sold to Arsenal last season for 22 rising to 40 million, was a bad decision looking back as my main rw became unhappy yada yada yada need a right winger now! Still a good piece of development from us though and I think he will become an Arsenal regular with time.
