*UPDATED* PES 2021 Master League: New features, Wonderkids & more

The changes to Master League went down a huge hit with fans on PES 2020.

Despite PES 2021 just being a Season Update, we could see some new additions in Master League.

PES 2021 Season Update

Don't expect any significant changes to come to Master League or any other mode in PES 2021.

This is due to the game just being a "Season Update", with Konami citing Corovavirus delays and the arrival of Next Gen to go down this route.

The publisher has said developments have gone into Master League, but that will be seen on PES 2022.

New Managers

We didn't expect to see anything new in Master League for PES 2021, but we may get some new manager options.

SUPER FRANK - Chelsea manager Lampard looks to be in the game

In the first PES 2021 trailer we saw Pep Guardiola, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs, suggesting real-life managers are coming to the game.

Wonderkids to look out for in PES 2021

If Konami does manage to implement edits to the youth team and improve player development then picking up wonderkids will be the best way to getting your team up through the leagues

Joao Felix, Age: 20, Position(s): SS

Club: Madrid Rosas Rb (Atlético de Madrid), Country: Portugal

Felix has impressed since his absolutely huge £113m move from Benfica to Athletico Madrid. That is a large sum to pay for a young player but he has all the talent to repay the faith.

He has played 28 games this season with 6 goals and 3 assists. This isn't world-beating, but his performances have been enough to see a solid boost to his stats for PES 2021. In the current game, his potential can reach a rating of 95.

Houssem Aouar, Age: 21, Position(s): CMF, AMF

Club: Olympique Lyonnais, Country: France

Coming from the Lyon youth team, Aouar has been a regular starter for a few years despite only being 21. He is the name that every club in the world wants to sign in the Summer of 2020.

He has played 37 games this season with 9 goals and 7 assists. This is a good return given his role as a midfielder, and with a big move, it's likely to see a boost in PES 2021. In the current game, his potential can reach a rating of 92.

Phil Foden, Age: 19, Position(s): CMF

Club: Manchester B (Man City), Country: England

A local lad that has come through the club's system, it's unlikely Foden will move or even be loaned anywhere. He has been groomed to take over from David Silva, and with the Spaniard leaving the club at the end of this season, now is Foden's time to shine.

It will surprise some that he has had 26 games this season. In those, he has registered 3 goals and 7 assists. We would expect him to get a bigger role in the Man City lineup for 2020. In the current game, his potential can reach a rating of 90.
