Football Manager 2023 wonderkids

Everyone has a slightly different definition when it comes to what makes a wonderkid, so why don't we give you ours?

We are looking for players that start the game aged 21 or younger. This means they can still develop their attributes and become even better than they currently are. And that's really it.

We will be basing our picks on their current ability (CA) and potential ability (PA) within the Football Manager 2023 database. The important thing to remember is that some teenagers in Football Manger get a PA range (eg 150-180) which means that any time you load up a new save their PA will fall somewhere within that bracket.

So sometimes a wonderkid can be at the top of their range and turn into the next Lionel Messi, or sometimes they will be at the bottom and simply be Serge Gnabry - still good but not quite godlike.
