Ronaldo Camará – SL Benfica (Portugal / Guinea-Bissau)
Wanted by Manchester United and FC Barcelona, Ronaldo Camará is a highly rated talent worth watching for Football Manager 2020. Born in Guinea-Bissau 5th of January 2003, the ‘attacking midfielder’ has received the number 10 jersey for the SL Benfica UEFA Youth League squad. He received his UEFA Youth League debut 18th of October and since then made 2 more appearances in the tournament and scoring one goal in the 2-2 draw against FC Bayern Munich 11 days ago (27th of November), playing alongside four years older FM19 wonderkid Florentino Luis. This is not an abnormality for him, as he’s used to play among and against 2 years older players.
Ronaldo Camará is actually a Sporting Lisbon product who moved to Benfica at the age of 12. The current Portugal Under-17 international has made a remark due to his aggressive pressing and determination to win back the ball quickly and advance play from defense into attacking third in a second with his direct through balls. For some, he may be compared to the regista role that we know from Football Manager – one who operates in the middle and dominate play with his passing range, aggression and vision staying high up the pitch punching away some fierce long shots when the opportunity arises.
His playmaking abilities and passing technique would best fit a possession oriented manager such as Josep Guardiola. Ronaldo Camará is a star in making that I’m sure we’ll see much more of in the future. You can learn more about the player by watching the video below.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Mathis Rayan Cherki – Olympique Lyonnais (France)
Mathis Rayan Cherki (aka Ryan Cherki) is a 15 year old attacking midfielder playing for Olympique Lyonnais Under-19 team as an attacking midfielder or winger. The highly unpredictable youngster has only received 14 minutes of UEFA Youth League play time, but have scored one nice goal in Lyon’s 4-1 win against Manchester City.
He got his debut for the French Under-16 international team in September against Denmark. Noted for his directness with the ball at his feet he passes his opponents as cones using his quickness and tempo shifts to advance play and create chances for his teammates. With a tendency to cut inside he prefers to show off his trickery and dribbling abilities to get space to play others in.
Mathis Rayan Cherki is a rough diamond with great potential. By improving his decision-making and long shots he may become an important figure in French football in the years to come
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Xavi Simons – Paris SG (Spain)
In the absence of Andres Iniesta, who left FC Barcelona prior to the 2018-2019 season, future might be rescued as the next generation of talent has been revealed in Xavi Simons. The 15 year old midfielder, who’s apparently named after the one and only Xavi (my all-time favorite player), was born in Amsterdam in 2003 and been part of the Barcelona U17 team since the summer. Xavi Simons is currently part of the Netherlands U16 international team.
Xavi Simons features great technical skills that we’ve seen from Xavi and Iniesta plus the dribbling and movements of Lionel Messi, which is why he’s nicknamed the ‘new Messi’.
Labelled as the new pearl of La Masia, in a time where most talents has moved away for improved possibilities for first team football, the Basque club holds the skills and potential of Dutch Xavi Simons in high regard. Not surprisingly why, when you’ll see the youngster in action. His creativity and tendency to do the unexpected when setting pace with the ball against the opposition, either it’s 1, 2 or 3 opponents, sparks resemblance to Messi. He got the same composure in front of goal plus the passing technique and vision that made Messi into the worlds best player. He’s proficient in the short passing play that FC Barcelona is famed for and got the extra ordinary talent to keep hold of the ball (just like Xavi) in the most pressing situations and get out of tight spaces with his agility and dribbling abilities.
Future looks bright for Xavi Simons either he’ll be dominating center of the park or Instagram as the kid has over 1.3Million followers to date, and have signed a contract with Nike. I’m definitely in awe about his talents! At the 23rd of July 2019, Xavi Simons surprised everyone, even the FC Barcelona board by moving to Paris SG, which he signed a contract until 30.06.2022.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Fernando Ovelar – Cerro Porteño (Paraguay)
At the biggest spectacle in Paraguayan football, the match between the two most successful clubs, Cerro Porteño and Olimpia, a 14 year old striker rose to fame as he scored the final goal which settled the 2-2 draw. The player was Fernando Ovelar, who showed glimpses of his potential, excellent composure and the eye for a goal with a wonderful chip behind the goalkeeper. With his goal he became the youngest ever goalscorer in Paraguayan football.
This was the Cerro Porteño strikers second appearance, as he in his debut became the youngest ever player to feature in a consecutive league match.
I’ll be sure, we’ll hear much more about the player in Football Manager 2020 depending on if Sports Interactive will have the allowance from his parents to feature him a few months before turning 16. If not, Football Manager 2021 will definitely feature Fernando Ovelar.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Naci Ünüvar – AFC Ajax (Holland)
Want to find the most promising talents in Europe, then ‘de Toekomst’ is the place to go. AFC Ajax has in recent years produced some of the best Under-21 talents in the world with Matthijs de Ligt and Donny van de Beek as the front figures. Now, a new wonderkid has emerged within Dutch football. He’s been part of our youth database since December 2018, and was one we really hoped you would discover without promoting him too much.
Labelled as one of the biggest talents at AFC Ajax along with Ryan Gravenberch, the player in question is Naci Ünüvar. Born in the same district as the Koeman brothers June 13 2003, the technical gifted attacking midfielder is one of the hot prospects who can reach, or even exceed, their reputation.
At the age of 15, the midfield ‘maestro’ became the youngest player to score in the UEFA Youth League. He received the Adidas topscorer award in the Future Cup 2018 and was part of the Dutch UEFA European Under-17 Championship winner squad in the summer of 2019. For the last year, he has dazed the world with ‘world class’ vision, sublime technique and the most magical passes that creates chances out of ‘nothing’.
Naci Ünüvar can be described as an advanced playmaker who likes to roam around the pitch and take on players one on one. The attacking midfielder of Turkish descent features similar ball control and the eye for the goal as of a young Lionel Messi. Last term he recorded 13 goals and 10 assists in 36 appearances across all competitions. He’s the perfect #10 with his movements into the box, unpredictability/flair and receiving the ball in tight areas before taking on his nearby marker with some dazzling dribbles.
Naci Ünüvar should be one of the biggest wonderkids in Football Manager 2020. But with a professional contract signed back in May 2019 until 30.06.2022, signing him won’t be the cheapest deal.

Karamoko Dembele – Celtic (Scotland / England / Ivory Coast)
While there’s a battle between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo about who’s the greatest of all time, a similar battle might happen 15 years on between Xavi Simons and Karamoko Dembele. Karamoko Kader Dembele was born in London 22nd of February 2003 and is currently contracted to Celtic and part of their Under-18 squad.
He represented Celtic’s Under-20 squad in 2016, at the age of only 13(!), and immediately received media attention as Brendan Rogers called him up to the first team to train with them. Karamoko Dembele is a versatile forward who can play anything from winger to attacking midfielder. Due to his great technical abilities he’s too been compared to Lionel Messi by fans and former coaches.
In 2016 he received one match for England U16, before switching to Scotland. In august 2018, he received his Scotland U17 debut playing on the left wing with the number 10 shirt. As Scotland U17 won 2-0 against Russia U17, he provided an assist to the final goal.
Karamoko Dembele has made a remark with his excellent acceleration and great pace. He’s technical gifted as the ball is glued to his feet as he moves past the opponents with dribbles and touches ‘out of this world‘. In an interview with Soufiane Touzani he names, dribbling, combination play, quickness and shooting as his best qualities. He’s proficient at creating goal scoring opportunities for his team mates with his through balls and passing range, but is also able to finish off attacks with placed shots.
Already at a young age his determined and focused on improving. He seems really humble and down-to-earth, two personality trait which is necessary to reach his full potential and become a professional footballer.
If you’d like to know how Karamoko Dembele develops in Football Manager 2019 using my database, please check out this Youtuber Enda Story’s wonderkid review
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Eduardo Camavinga – Stade Rennais (DR Congo / Angola)
One of the biggest revelations the last year has been Eduardo Camavinga. At the age of 16 and a month he became the youngest ever professional for Stade Rennais as he signed his professional contract. Tought to be one of the brighest talents in French football, the wonderkid had to wait until April 6th 2019 to get his first team debut in a 3-3 draw against Angers SCO. Since then he has not looked back!
The Angolan midfielder born in November 2002, made an impressive display in the second match of the 2019-2020 season as Stade Rennais stunned Paris SG. Camavinga made an inch-perfect assist which sealed the win for ‘The Rennais’ (2-1) and thereby making history as he became the youngest ever to record an assist in the French top division. So far he’s recorded 11 appearances within the Ligue 1.
The midfielder combines aggression and determination to retain possession and hazzle the opponents with composure on the ball. He’s vision and passing technique stands out for his young age. His direct playing style where he sets speed towards the opponents penalty box with the ball at his feet reminds me a bit of Paul Pogba. What he may lack is the physic and a broader dribbling reportoir to be a real threat with his direct playing style. The highly gifted midfielder can play both as an regista, box to box midfielder and a roaming playmaker as he’s great at making both simple passes and penetrating through balls.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Harvey Elliott – Liverpool (England)
You have to applaud the work Fulham have done in the past years with producing talents. In recent years we’ve been introduced to players like Matt O’Riley, Ryan Sessegnon and twin brother Steven, while we’ve get to know wonderkid Cody Drameh in Football Manager 2019.
For Football Manager 2020 there’s a new wonderkid in the making as Harvey Elliott is the next in line worth watching.
Harvey Elliott is a 15 year old right winger, who got his first team debut in the Carabao Cup third round win against Millwall in the 81st minute. By entering the pitch he became the youngest ever player to make a first-team appearance.
The current England Under-17 international as only made 2 appearances for the first team, but is a regular starter in the U18 Premier League where he’s scored 3 goals in 6 appearances.
The winger tends to cut inside and move forward with the ball at great pace. He got a fierce powerful long shot and has some decent crosses. The youngster tends to take free-kicks and penalties for the youth team.
On July 28th, 2019, Liverpool confirmed the signing of Harvey Elliott for an undisclosed fee. Jürgen Klopp immediately decided that the youngster should be part of the first team and he received some matches in the pre-season, where he made a remark.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Dillon Hoogewerf – Man Utd (Netherlands)
The next generation of talents is frequently coming out from ‘de Toekomst’. In difference to Barcelona and other clubs, Ajax manages to produce international stars no matter whom the manager may be. With Matthijs de Ligt and Frankie de Jong as the most touted youngsters in their academy this season, another future hot prospect comes in Dillon Hoogewerf.
Dillon Hoogewerf is of Nigerian ancient, but born in Almere in Netherlands, capable of playing as a striker or on either wings. He’s two footed with an eye for the goal. As part of the Netherlands Under-15 squad December 2017 he scored 6 goals in 8 appearances, while he’s completed a similar record in the Under-17 Eredevisie (one goal per 99 minute!). This October he received his debut for the international Netherlands U16 and scored the first goal and provided an assist in the 2-0 win against Hungary.
The Dutch forward may spark comparison to Patrick Kluivert – a forward who could find the net in the most difficult situations. Similarly, Dillon Hoogewerf, has a great composure and finishing technique, either he chips the ball over a diving goalkeeper or he places the ball in the back of the net. With the ball at his feet, he accelerates past the opponents as it was FIFA 2019. Apart from his goalscoring talent, the forward is also capable of creating space for himself and for teammates by holding up the ball by dribbling or turning quickly (read agility). The promising forward has a great physic and a low center of gravity that makes it hard to get the ball out of his feet.
Dillon Hoogewerf is just one of many promising talents who signed for Manchester United. Together with Noah Emeran, Mateo Mejia, Hannibal Mejbri and Johan Guadagno, the future looks highly promising for the ‘Red Devils’.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Youssoufa Moukoko – Bor. Dortmund (Germany)
28 goals in 15 matches so far this season of the B-Junioren Bundesliga West might stand for itself, as he looks to smash his own goalscoring record of 2017-2018 season where he scored 40 and helped his team to the league trophy with some stunning goals. The player I’m talking about is the wonderkid phenomenon Youssoufa Moukoko.
You might have heard of him since 2016 where he left St.Pauli on a free transfer to Borussia Dortmund. In the first season, at the age of only 12, he was called up to the Germany Under-16 international team after finding the net 33 times in 21 appearances. His debut for the Germany U16, did not go unnoticed as he found the net twice – one brilliant volley and a powerful shot towards the near post.
He just turned 14 years old under a month ago so there might go another edition of Football Manager before he’s included. But the kid has the physic of boys 3 to 4 year older than himself and a repertoire of tricks and dribbles that makes the opponent look like training cones.
His skills are truly unbelievable considering his young age. He stands out despite playing against 3 to 4 years older players with his acceleration and pace, physic and technical skills.
With a record of over 101 goals in 64 appearances just in the league you could say it might be down to good teammates, but actually he creates most of the goals himself revealing his determination on the pitch to get the ball in the back of the net, either he has an unbelievable touch and shot, or he have to force the ball over the line.
The current Germany U7 international was actually born in Yaoundé and has been handed the top scorer title in the past 2 seasons, and is expected to complete the feat the next 2 seasons as well as he’s not allowed to play with the pros until he turns 17.
Expect to see Youssoufa Moukoko in Football Manager 2021, in the mean time enjoy him in FM19 with our youth database.
Passion4FM’s Potential Rating:
Filip Stevanovic – Partizan (Serbia)
Filip Stevanovic is a Serbian wonderkid, who plays for Partizan. Born on September 25, 2002, the young winger missed the cut for Football Manager 2019 and should be one to watch for Football Manager 2020. Part of the Under-21 Serbian National team, Filip Stevanovic has quickly emerged on to the world scene the last year.
On August 1st 2019, Filip Stevanovic became the second youngest player to score in the history of Partizan FK, as he scored his first goal in the second round match of Europa League qualification against Connah’s Quay. With the last goal of the day making it 3-0, Partizan FK qualified for the Europa League group stage.
Filip Stevanovic can be described as a technical winger who also tends to cut inside from the left. He likes to show off his dribbling skills and take on multiple players in tight areas before running with the ball either down the byline or setting speed towards the penalty box. With his dribbling he creates chances by opening up spaces and draw attention to him. His quickness and movements makes him difficult to mark.
Filip Stevanovic is one of the latest Serbian talents to emerge. He could be a great bargain in Football Manager 2020 and could be compared to Strahinja Jovanovic.

Disclaimer and Background to the Creation Process
Creating such a database of promising talents and youngsters requires great research and several different valid sources of information. Not only about the players themselves, but also about the current FM database in order to be able to compare skills, abilities and potential among more.
It’s tricky and sometimes quite difficult to make right.
For the less unknown youngsters, the amount of information is lacking, meaning that only basic information is detected and added within the database. Other times, information about position or skills are missing so I’ve been forced to use my subjective instinct to add certain information required to create a satisfying profile of the player(s).
While other times, the players have been watched via matches either by myself or other sources and the amount of data that can be included is more accurate.
This year, it’s been harder than ever to add new youngsters within the database. I’ve found both major and minor differences in how the official database researchers sets CA and PA between nations and regions. For example, Emil Ceide, a Norwegian U17 international talent playing for Rosenborg has been set with a CA 6 points away from Mason Greenwoods, while other Under-17 internationals that currently excels, such as Naoufal Bannis or Nicolò Cudrig, is 10 or 20 points below, .
When most of the youth players (of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid) that plays part of Under-18 competitions and the UEFA Euro U17 championship has been given PA of -55 to -7 (few above and most at -65 to -7) it becomes an uncertainty factor of which level I shall set PA for the players I’ll add. The case about Barcelona youngsters and Spanish talents (compared to for example Dutch, English or Portuguese players of similar age) is something I’ve encountered for years. Personally it seems like an underestimation, as they often receives a PA boost as soon as they moves abroad.
What I’ve done is that I’ve edited and set CA and PA in comparison to the other players at similar age within their club (as it differs so much from nation to nation in my point of view) and used my own judgement (and if possible magazine and newspaper sources about statements about the player from the manager or coach) according to whether I believe the player will influence international football in the years to come.
The result has become a database that’s 50% fictional and 50% realistic. We can not guarantee that every bits of information about the players that we’ve included is 100% correct, nor currently or the future (regarding their PA). Because of their low age and current world reputation we can not even guarantee that information from our sources is 100% accurate neither. Besides that, we hope you’d enjoy this young player database and that you use it for the entertainment purpose which it was created!
