Click below to find out everything you need to know:
The following players will all be teenagers at the start of FM22.
These youngsters should have a decent current ability (CA), but more importantly extremely high potential ability (PA).
You can view CA & PA in the Football Manager Editor.
We've also included players with an undefined PA Range - which will vary from save to save.
Eduardo Camavinga (CA 136 - PA Range 170-200)
Position: M (C), DM
Club: Real Madrid
Value: £58-73 million
Wage: £127,000 a week
Rennes star midfielder Eduardo Camavinga was a must-have in last year's game and Football Manager 2022 will be no different.
Now at Real Madrid, the 18-year-old is one of only three players to have made 200+ tackles in Europe’s top five leagues since the start of the 2019/2020 season.
Ilaix Moriba (CA 135 - PA Range 170-200)
Position: M (C), DM, AM (C)
Club: RB Leipzig
Value: £77-93 million
Wage: £25,000 a week
One of the young players Barcelona has had to offload to balance their books - Ilaix Moriba will now at least get regular game time at RB Leipzig.
The former Spanish U17 international made 14 appearances for Barca last season, and will look to follow much of Leipzig's production line, which includes Joshua Kimmich, Timo Werner, Marcel Sabizter, Naby Keita and Dayot Upamecano.
Youssoufa Moukoko (CA 121 - PA Range 170-200)
Position: ST (C)
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Value: £37-44 million
Wage: £5,000 a week
Football Manager fans rejoiced when Moukoko was added to the game in the winter update last year, and it’s easy to see why.
Moukoko was so highly regarded he was even dubbed the “best wonderkid in FM history” – no pressure for this year’s game.
Mason Greenwood (CA 148 - PA 178)
Position: ST, AM (R)
Club: Manchester United
Value: £47-70 million
Wage: £75,000 a week
Mason Greenwood had a tricky period last season, but the young Man Utd forward recovered to finish with 12 goals in all competitions.
The England international now has the opportunity to learn off Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford, which could allow the 19-year-old to explode in the coming years.
Pedri (CA 155 - PA 175)
Position: AM (CRL), M (C)
Value: £70-87 million
Wage: £66,000 a week
Another Barcelona wonderkid who is currently proving he’s definitely one for the future with Spain at Euro 2020.
In Football Manager 2022, Pedri could even move into that 170 – 200 PA range as he played most games for Barcelona last season which has only helped him develop even further.
Ansu Fati (CA 149 - PA Range 160-190)
Position: AM (LR), ST
Value: £54-87 million
Wage: £105,000 a week
Ansu Fati is far from an unknown at this point having already played over 40 games for Barcelona but that does not stop him from being a wonderkid.
Although you may have to break the banking signing this 18-year-old, he’s worth every penny.
Despite commanding a hefty price tag, Pedri could become your team's next Andres Iniesta.
Jamal Musiala (CA 147 - PA Range 160-190)
Position: AM (CRL), M (C)
Club: Bayern Munich
Value: £50-62 million
Wage: £82,000 a week
Jamal Musiala had a decision to make last season, and with a clearer path to international football with the German national team, the England U21 international collected to play for Die Mannschaft - and made their squad for Euro 2020.
The youngster played for Bayern Munich an incredible 37 times last term, netting 7 goals and could explode in the coming years.
Jude Bellingham (CA 143 - PA Range 160-190)
Position: M (C), DM
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Value: £96-115 million
Wage: £49,000 a week
Having made England’s squad for Euro 2020 and featuring in 46 games for Borussia Dortmund last season, Bellingham looks to be a top prospect on Football Manager 2022.
Bellingham probably won’t come cheap, but is certainly a young English talent to invest in for the future.
Karim Adeyemi (CA 134 - PA Range 160-190)
Position: ST (C), AM (R)
Club: RB Salzburg
Value: £11.5-17 million
Wage: £7,000 a week
Following in the footsteps of Erling Haaland ar RB Salzburg, expect Karim Adeyemi to explode in the coming seasons.
He may have only scored 9 goals last term, but the German international has already bagged 14 in 18 games so far this season.
Yusuf Demir (CA 130 - PA Range 160-190)
Position: AM (CRL), ST (C)
Club: Barcelona (on loan from Rapid Vienna)
Value: £10.5-13 million
Wage: £3,000 a week
Football Manager fans will recognise his name from last year’s game, and he looks set to remain a wonderkid having played 25 times in the Austrian Bundesliga last season.
Whether you play him as an inverted winger or as an advanced playmaker, it will be interesting to see how Demir fairs on his loan move to a new-look Barcelona.
