Phil Foden

Phil Foden is Manchester City’s next super wonderkid and has even made his first team debut. Is he any good in FM18? We had a look!

Name: Phil Foden
Nationality: England
Age: 17 (28/05/2000)
Height: 168 cm
Weight:
 61 kg

Club: Manchester City
Contract: 30/06/2022
Position: AM (C)
Value: £ 2.4M / € 3M
Est. Cost: £ 160M / € 175M

Transfer information
Can a 17-year-old be unavailable for a transfer? Well, yes actually. We tried multiple bid with Real Madrid, starting at his value and working our way up to 100M. His club Manchester City didn’t crack once and kept on demanding 160M and a future fee clause of 40%. Although we like Foden as a midfielder, 160M for him is way too much. If he was as good as Mbappe, we would consider it. But seeing he is not even close to City’s first team, we would never pay that kind of money for him.

Pros
Phil Foden has the ability to do the unexpected, which he uses to pass his man. He has a balanced and normal personality, which makes him easy to work with. Foden possesses a fair amount of pace, can play in a couple of positions and can be re-trained as a central midfielder.

Cons
Phil Foden is not that tall, and that makes him ineffective in the air. He will also need to work on his consistency if he wants to succeed on the highest level in football. Foden is seen as a fairly selfish player and that could lead to some problems in the squad. You can pair him up with Kevin de Bruyne, and hope he will unlearn being selfish as time progresses.
