10. ASEC Mimosas
Since the club was founded in 1948 ASEC Mimosas have won the Ivorian league title a staggering 24 times. Their secret to success? Their academy.
1948年建立的ASEC Mimosas俱乐部，已经赢得了24次科特迪瓦联赛冠军了，他们依靠的就是 自己的青训
The Academie Mimosifcom has produced some of the nation’s best ever players, with Yaya Toure, Salomon Kalou, Didier Zokora and Gervinho all having spent time at the club as youth players.
The ASEC production-line quite often churns out some unbelievably talented players during a standard Football Manager save, and due to the youngsters’ minuscule wages and values, you can pick them up for buttons.
Be warned, however. If you’re playing as an English team, getting a work-permit for an Ivorian youngster can be pretty stressful.
9. River Plate
Argentinian youth players often command small transfer fees and wages, though they are not allowed to sign for foreign teams until they turn 18. If you find the right player though, he might just be worth the wait.
8. RC Lens
More than a few Lens youth products are now playing their football with either PSG or Lyon, and players such as Geoffrey Kondogbia and Benoit Assou-Ekotto also came through their youth system.
7. Ajax 兵工厂
Ajax are arguably the most legendary feeder club in world football. Not only do they buy in plenty of young talent like the young Zlatan (pictured above), they also produce a lot of their own. Fancy the next Wesley Sneijder, Dennis Bergkamp or Johan Cruijff? You’re looking in the right place…
Though Dutch youngsters can sometimes command steeper fees, Ajax produce some incredible technical footballers in-game. Keep a close eye on the Dutch club, and you could just snap up the world’s next big superstar.
6. FC Porto
Porto are a unique entry in this piece. They aren’t on here due to the talent that comes through their academy. Sure, in game they have a pretty good youth setup, and many of Portugal’s top players will eventually come through their system.
The reason every Football Manager player should monitor Porto is simple. They buy nobodies and make them world-class – both in the real football world and in-game. In recent years, Jackson Martinez, Deco, James Rodriguez, Danilo, Falcao and many more have all made their name with the Portuguese giants.
By monitoring Porto, you make sure not to miss out on any South-American/Portuguese talent you may have otherwise glanced over. If you’re looking for players in their early twenties with remarkable ability and potential, Porto will not disappoint at any stage of your Football Manager save.
5. Boca Juniors
Argentinian champions Boca are River Plate’s huge Buenos Aires rivals. The two match up to each other in every possible way. They share a city, they’re historically successful and they produce some unbelievable talent.
The young Carlos Tevez pictured above is just one example. Other products of Boca include Walter Samuel, Juan Roman Riquelme and a certain Diego Maradona （近代球王。。还需要解释吗）.
As is the case with River Plate, check Boca Juniors regularly and you could just find yourself one of the world’s biggest prospects for a relatively low transfer fee. 和河床一样，球员属于廉价实惠！
4. Athletic Bilbao
- 虽然作者列出了这个，但是玩FM都知道，挖他们的墙角，坏人品的 。。。。
Bilbao are one of Spain’s great historic clubs. Their transfer policy of only signing players from the Basque region of Spain is acknowledged in-game, which puts great emphasis on their well-known youth setup.
Highly-rated players such as Aymeric Laporte, Iker Muniain and Beñat have all been developed by Bilbao, though the club can be quite hard to lure players from.
Should you find a gem, you can expect to pay more than a little over his value to land him. The Basque club’s transfer policy makes it tough for players to leave, and the same applies in-game. In spite of that, paying a bit more for a top talent from Bilbao may still prove a smart long-term move.
Many people reading this won’t have actually heard of Danubio. They’re a Uruguayan club, and though small in international stature, they’re well-known domestically, having won the Uruguayan Primera Division three times in the last eleven seasons.
Fancy yourself a new striker? Diego Forlan and Edinson Cavani both came through Danubio’s youth system, and their player recruitment in-game is certainly the best available in Uruguay.
Uruguayan players tend to be dirt-cheap and command low wages, so by occasionally checking Danubio’s squads, you could be uncovering bargain of the century.
Colo-Colo are Chile’s most successful and most supported football team. They have won Chile’s top-flight a record 30 times, and the Copa Chile on 10 separate occasions.
Two pretty familiar faces in the Chilean national team made their name with Colo-Colo, with Claudio Bravo and Arturo Vidal both being products of their academy.
Chilean players are often ridiculously cheap. The only issue lies with work-permits, which can often prove tricky to get. If you’re playing as a club outside of England, especially keep an eye on Colo-Colo, who are Chile’s best producers of talent in-game.
Stop laughing – it’s true. On Football Manager, Middlesbrough are up there with England’s best when it comes to producing quality youngsters. Due to their second-division stature, they’re often cheaper to lure in too.
Who have they actually produced in recent years, you ask? Adam Johnson, Stewart Downing, Lee Cattermole and, er, Danny Graham. Admittedly that doesn’t sound too prosperous, but the Regens the North-East club produce in-game are just ridiculous sometimes. 这些人都是来自米堡的
Keep an eye out. If you’re a keen admirer of young, domestic talent, Middlesbrough is the club for you.
