Football Manager 2018 Wonderkids are young players with high potential ability that are likely to become big stars in the future. Below you will find a list of the best young players in Football Manager 2018. This list contains both those players guaranteed to be a success in FM18 and who will likely cost quite a bit of money. As well as the fm18 Wonderkids whose potential is a little bit random so will be at different levels in each save game. These players are generally cheaper but will only sometimes mature into the best players in fm2018 and in other save games they won't. We recommend you take the time to let your scouts have a good look at them rather than just relying on this list, but in terms of possible fm2018 Wonderkids, this is certainly the definitive list of fm2018 Wonderkids with world class potential ability.

Hello fellas, I'm Roy, new owner at FM Blog.

First off I love the site and actually regularly link to it whenever someone ask for the best graphics for their FM game.

I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link to my site or not on here, so if it is against the rules I apologise and mods do make the necessary changes.

Anyways, I would like to share with you my FM18 Wonderkids list.

I've compiled more than 800 potential potential world-class players and good first team players.

To make it on the list, players need to have Potential Ability of at least 150, and can't be older than 20 years of age at the start of the game.

Some of the already have the wonderkid status whilst others will obtain the same as the game progresses.

You can also see the asking price of their current parent club at which they are willing to sell the player.

Here is the Football Manager 2018 Wonderkids shortlist.

Any feedback much appreciated.

Roy

Great list. Any chance of it being made available in an Excel spreadsheet format to do multiple sorting of columns?

Any chance this list could get "sorting" options? So that we can list players by asking price / age / position etc.?

I am not sure Abdelhak Nouri should still be on this list. Feels uncomfortable now.

Thanks mate

Please Rob, is Afonso Sousa got his PA dropped from -9 to -8?
Just wanted a confirmation that this is not a mistake, thanks.

If that's what it says then yes, you can also check this yourself in the data editor.
