Football Manager 2022 Wonderkids: Best talents in FM 22

We have selected the best talents and wonderful kids for the FM 22 for you and explain how you can find even more players with potential.

Football Manager 2022 has been available as a beta on Steam since mid-October 2021, and the full release will follow on November 9, 2021 – this time as part of the Xbox Game Pass as part of the launch. So that you can lead your club of choice to success, you need a well thought-out tactic as well as a skillful hand for strong transfers.

So that you are guaranteed not to buy a pig in a poke, we are once again showing you the list of the best talents and child prodigies at FM 22 this year.

This is how strength and potential work in FM 2022

The current strength of your players in the FM 22 is based on the Current Ability (CA) value (which cannot be viewed in the game  ). The CA is a dynamic value and is made up of the attributes of the kicker. Depending on the position of the player, certain attributes weigh more – the CA of a striker increases more with a higher final score than when he wins points in a duel.

The  Potential Ability (PA)  determines how high the CA can rise. However, not every player that you consistently show up reaches their maximum potential. Age, in particular, plays a role here, as young players can increase their attributes much faster. Older players, on the other hand, lose technical and physical attributes (such as speed and endurance) and can mainly only gain points for mental attributes.

Both values ​​range from 0 to 200  – the strongest player in FM 22, Lionel Messi, has a CA of around 195.

We’ll tell you at the end of this article how you get these values ​​- but now the 10 greatest talents in each position come first, sorted by PA value.

Discover even more talents

If this selection is not enough for you, you can also browse the database of the Football Manager for other prospective players. To do this, install the editor, which you can find in your Steam library under the tools.

In the editor you go to the sub-item »People« and create a new filter there:

  • Add Condition => Player Attributes => Skills and Reputation => Potential Skill

If you also create a filter for the maximum age of the player, you can now search, for example, for players with a PA of at least 150 – this value corresponds to a player of international class, well-known players with a CA of 150 at the start of the game are, for example, the Dortmund Emre Can, ex-Frankfurt Luka Jovic or storm talent Victor Osimhen.

However, not all talents have a fixed PA at the start of the game: Players can also show a negative value here if the data researchers were not yet 100 percent sure about the assessment. At the beginning of a new game, you are given a random PA value from a specified range.

  • PA -10 = 170-200 PA
  • PA -95 = 160-190 PA
  • PA -9 = 150-180 PA
  • PA -85 = 140-170 PA
  • And so forth.
