There are some of the best wonderkids (players with a high potential ability attribute) in Football Manager 2017 who also have a high injury proneness attribute. This means they are very likely to be injured and miss alot of games in your FM 17 career. They may be good young players, but seriously, avoid signing these injury prone wonderkids in Football Manager 2017.

You can pick up all of these players as free transfers in Football Manager 2017, but be warned, they each have a high injury proneness rating in Football Manager 2017 which makes them likely to be injured alot. There's a reason they've been left as free agents in real life, because they're always injured. You might think you've picked up a bargain free transfer in FM17 but is it worth the risk? At the very least we recommend not giving these players any longer than a 1 or 2 year contract. They may be free transfer bargains but you don't want to be stuck with these injury prone players.
