17-year-old Brazilian Paulinho is one of those exciting prospects in Football Manager 2019 that you should always have on your shortlist. We take a look at the young left winger to see how he develops.

Transfer Information

Seeing Paulinho has only just joined Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, the Brazilian wonderkid will not be available for a move until at least the January window. Bayer paid 18.5M for the youngster and that shows that they have the utmost confidence in his abilities. We expect that Leverkusen will not be allowing Paulinho to leave the club for a reasonable fee for some seasons.

Paulinho – 2018

As we said earlier, Paulinho is a fresh signing at Bayer Leverkusen. He has signed on a 18.5m deal, but that doesn’t mean he will be playing right away. Seeing he is considered a hot prospect, we do expect him to get some minutes, but he will probably be coming in from the bench for the first few seasons.

Paulinho – 2028

After ten years Paulinho has decided to stay inside the German Bundesliga as he completed a move to Bayern Munich in the 2025 summer window. Bayern paid 75M for the left winger and since joining he has been a key played for the Bavarians. During his career (which will not end for a couple of years) he has won multiple trophies, including two DFB Pokals, 2 Bundesliga’s, a Champions League, a UEFA Supercup and the FIFA World Club Cup.

Surprisingly he earned his first cap for Brazil in 2026 and has only featured twice for the Selecao. That is odd seeing the left winger is one of the better players in the game.

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
