TRANSFER INFO

Because Sousa is a youngster he is still on a Youth Contract at FC Porto. So, if you want him you will have to be quick. When he signs a professional deal at the club, which he will in almost all saves if you wait too long, his Value will be sky high and you could be forced to pay a very large fee. When you try to sign him during the first summer window, you will be paying a fee around €1.000.000 (£950k) for him as a compensation, which makes him an absolute bargain.

PROS

Afonso Sousa is a wonderful wonderkid on Football Manager 2017. He is 16-years-old but already has some great Attributes for his position. He is exceptional in Passing, Ball Control and his with his high speed he can be a deadly Attacking Midfielder or Shadow Striker. In our Test Save Sousa stayed at Porto for the first ten years of the game, but still he developed into quite the player. If you pick him early on in the game, you can mold a perfect Attacking Midfielder that has the potential to be one of the best ones in FM17.

CONS

Afonso Sousa is a small player and that reflects in his profile. Balance & Strength are both  very low. He will make up for the lack of strength with his Speed, but he should really work on his physique. He should also work on his finishing, as you would expect some goals from an attacking midfielder. If you decide to play him as a Central Midfielder finishing isn’t that necessary and you will need to focus more on his playmaking attributes.
