Another year brings another Football Manager and another generation of FM wonderkids.

From Freddy Adu and Eduardo Ratinho to Nico Kranjcar and Cherno Samba, each Football Manager game brings with it another wave of incredible wonderkids, and it will no doubt be the same story for FM21.

Last year’s game saw the emergence of now Wolves striker Fabio Silva, Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, Tottenham’s Troy Parrott, Velez midfielder Thiago Almada, Lyon’s Rayan Cherki, Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and many more.

This year, FM is different to anything that has gone before, as it features the impact of Covid-19, as players who start a new career mode save will experience later league start dates, a different transfer market and an impact on club finances.

From season two of your virtual save, the world should return to ‘normal’, or as close as possible.

It has also been confirmed that FM will return to the Xbox platform for the first time since 2007.
