Football Manager 2020 wonderkids: 5 best affordable high-potential signings at every position in FM20

Football Manager 2020 wonderkids – Identifying the next big star is the stuff legends are made of. Everyone wants to sign the next Neymar before they become a £200m-valued player, but trawling through a database of millions of players to identify the next-best thing is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Being able to spot a player with potential is a task many thrive in, but being able to locate a bargain-buy is what separates from good managers from great managers. That’s why we’ve only included players who we consider to be affordable. If a player is likely to cost more than £30m, he’s not been included.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Matthijs de Ligt will not appear on this list of Football Manager 2020 wonderkids for that reason. This is a list of realistic targets in FM2020.

In case you’re unsure on how Football Manager’s rankings work, every player’s potential is rated on a scale of 0-200, while their individual attributes are ranked from 0-20.
