Are you in search of U21 talents? If yes, I recommend to take a look Best young players on Football Manager 2013. There are many English FM 2013 players, by the way.
It's always important to have a midfielder in the centre of pitch who will do destruction work interrupting opponent's attacks. And, of course, you will have more prospects in case if your DMC is wonderkid. Therefore I'm going to enumerate and describe such kind of youngsters - new Pirlos and Makeleles
The most known DMC wonderkid probably. Starts the game at Valencia and costs huge amount of money already - $23.5. That were cons. His attributes and skills are pros. And especially his age - 18 years. What's interesting - Banega is more of Andrea Pirlo type. He has rather low Tackling (10) in the very beginning and high Technique, First Touch, Creativity, Decision, Passing. Average physical attributes will be increased during trainings, so don't worry about that.
Only $3.3M - the price of this young French midfielder from PSG!!! Digard is brave, spirited fighter with good passing. His Work Rate equals 16 what promises his good development in future. Digard has 2 preferred moves: Run With Ball Through Center, Tries Long Range Passes. Ye, he like to run through centre being very, very versatile:
You see he can play on any position in the center!
Fantastic wonderkid from Liverpool. The man who can dictate tempo in the centre of midfield and get crowd going. Lucas is very quick, agile, technical and mental guy. I do not see his weaknesses at all. The only thing is that it's impossible to buy him in the very beginning of a game.
Top transfer target DMC in the real life now. Arsenal and many other grand clubs want to buy him from Sporting. In Football Manager 2008 his price is not so high as in the real life - $9M. The guy possesses the following preferred moves: Shoots With Power, Dictates Tempo, Tries To Play Way Out Of Trouble. Veloso is also versatile midfielder who can close the position of DC if needed. And sure his values of attributes are great at start. I don't see weaknesses here also!
Swiss defensive midfielder from Manchester City. He is tenacious classic DMC with perfect mental and physical abilities. Try to buy him and you will not regret, I promise!
