Football Manager is back and better than ever

Football Manager is back and, as always, the race is on to sign the best wonderkids in the world.

Every FM22 player must decide where they will start their managerial career: at the top of the world game with millions to spend or down the pyramid with a major project to oversee.

Either way, uncovering the young gems of football will be crucial to a manager achieving success.

A wonderkid is a player aged 20 or below who has the potential to go on and become a world-class player in the game. Not all of them will make it to the top, but with careful development and a bit of luck, a good manager can grow a wonderkid into a superstar.

There are the usual recognisable names in our list – such as Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies – but also some youngsters with a much smaller profile. Snap them up early, and they could help take your team to the next level.
