News - Football Manager 2019 Possible Wonderkids
This is a list of 50+ young players we think think they could be wonderkids or potential wonderkids on Football Manager 2019, based on what we know from real football.

We won't find players who appeared on our world renowed wonderkids list for FM18 in an effort to uncover fresh starlets who are still relatively unknown. Most of the young talents listed below don't exist in the official FM18 database at all.

I've tried to include players between 15 and 18 years old, but there are also a few exceptions. The age limit is to be up to 20 years old by 30 June 2018.

To sum up the criteria of this list:
  • Most players on this list should not exist in the official FM18 database.
  • More than 50 new exciting prospects you might haven't heard of before.
  • The age limit is to be up to 20 years old by 30 June 2018.
  • The order is totally random.

    @Skky: Added.

    @xekmat1893: Did Esteves play in any games with the A team of Porto last season? Or was his name involved in a transfer rumor with a top profile club? Being on the U19 national team is not a definite reason for classifying him as a possible wonderkid.
