TRANSFER INFO

Pound for pound, probably the biggest bargain in Football Manager 2018 – and Lautaro Martinez is an awesome wonderkid in real life too. Martinez is available for an inital fee of 11.5, which can be lowered a bit by adding clauses and bonuses. We managed to sign Martinez for 7M, 4M in bonuses and a 40% profit of next sale fee.

PROS

Lautaro Martinez is well-suited for the Argentinian Primera Division, but he can also improve a lot. He has the potential to be a lethal striker in a top flight league in Europe. The strongest area of his game is his Overall Speed, while his strongest attribute is Finishing, which is pretty important for a striker.

CONS

Martinez can plan in one position only. That is no disgrace, but it could be handy if he is able to play in other positions as well. An area he should be improving on is his Composure. So, make sure to set his training on this attribute. It is also advised that you appoint a tutor. His Determination is not impressive and should really be improved.
