Best FM15 Under-21 Talents of The Dutch Divisions
Welcome to Passion4FM’s new shortlist of the best Football Manager 2015 Dutch Talents featuring the most promising talents of the Eredivisie And Eerste Divisie. Here i compiled a shortlist full with players who are the biggest talents in the Dutch Divisions and are upcoming players in real life as well. These Dutch talents can become the next generation of great players of the Dutch top league in the coming years.
As these players are the biggest talents in these leagues most of these players will have a big price tag on them which is fairly normal for these clubs as they want to hold onto them as long as they can. For some of these players it is highly recommended to start out with a fairly big squad who have the money to spend, where as some clubs do sell their youngsters for either fairly cheap or can be snapped up on their youth contract.
With this shortlist we can help you on your way to buy the biggest talents of this league by highlighting some of these players for you to help you on their way, in addition with a downloadable shortlist of the best Football Manager 2015 Dutch Talents. All these players can be found in the Dutch Leagues and will all be under the age of 21 or be 21 at the start of your save. Every player has at least played in the youth teams of their club and some may even be unknown to you.
As these players all play for a club they either have to be signed in the summer or January transfer window, but do watch when you try and snap the players up on their youth contract as it may cost more to get them on their youth contract than actually buying them.
As i never seen a shortlist for these players or even these divisions I thought it would be important to make one with the bigger talents in these divisions. For this article I have send out every scout I have to my disposal, to every team in the Dutch divisions – meaning every player of each club got scouted to make it as complete as possible.
The Benefits of Signing Young and Talented Players
- To start of, they are young and have the time to developed which will mean you can progress them into any role you want.
- As they are young their contracts won’t be that big of a deal on your wage bill meaning you can offer them a long term contract for a fairly good price.
- As they are young players they could always benefit from older players mentoring them, with the help of older players they could always grow into a more professional work attitude.
