Adnan Januzaj was a top prospect in 2014

Where are they now? Man Utd’s 7 FIFA 14 wonderkids a decade later

FIFA 14 was released over a decade ago and we thought it would be a timely point to check out where the seven Manchester United wonderkids from that game are today.

The Red Devils have a rich history when it comes to developing young players, although not all of these wonderkids have managed to make a name for themselves at Old Trafford.

Using SoFIFA, we have found United’s seven wonderkids from FIFA 14 and have checked out what they are each up to these days.

Andreas Pereira

The Brazilian attacking midfielder had plenty of hype around him back in the FIFA 14 days. While he didn’t quite make the grade at Old Trafford, he still managed 75 senior appearances for the club.

Pereira has undoubtedly played his best football away from United as he is currently one of the main men in Marco Silva’s Fulham side.

Since making the £10million switch to Craven Cottage, Pereira hasn’t looked back. With 19 goal contributions during his Fulham stint so far, he seems to be enjoying life in London right now.

Adnan Januzaj

Fresh off his breakthrough season in 2013-14, Januzaj was all the hype upon the release of FIFA 14. He had a lofty potential of 87 on the game, which was the same rating that Wayne Rooney had on the game.

It’s safe to say that things didn’t quite progress in that way for the Belgian winger. After some early glimpses of potential, he ended up dropping down the pecking order under Louis van Gaal and then Jose Mourinho.

Despite things not quite working out in England, he has crafted a good career for himself elsewhere. He enjoyed his best days with Real Sociedad and now plays for Sevilla.

Jesse Lingard

The days of Lingard being regarded as an upcoming prospect are now well behind him. Following his release from Nottingham Forest in the summer, Lingard is still on the lookout for his next club.

He’s not the only former United star who’s currently without a club either.

Juan Mata is back on the market after leaving Vissel Kobe.

Angelo Henriquez

The Chilean forward was one of the last players signed by Sir Alex Ferguson. Despite showing some flashes of quality for the Under-21s, Henriquez never got his chance with the senior squad.

Fast forward 10 years and the forward is now playing in Russia for Baltika Kaliningrad. He’s been quite the journeyman since leaving United as he’s played for nine different clubs across eight counties throughout his career.

Nick Powell

Had it not been for the constant injuries that plagued his career, who knows how good Powell could have become. Despite not making the grade at United, he has enjoyed a good career in the EFL.

The creative midfielder spent his best days with Wigan Athletic and Stoke City where he racked up a combined 218 appearances.

These days you can catch the 29-year-old playing for Stockport County who are currently flying high in League Two.

Wilfred Zaha

The move to Old Trafford seemingly came too soon for Zaha and it wasn’t long before he was packing his bags and leaving the club.

He enjoyed a great spell with Crystal Palace upon his return to the club and left them this summer as arguably their greatest-ever player.

The 31-year-old moved to Galatasaray last summer and has struggled for consistency thus far, but did manage to score upon his return to Old Trafford earlier in the season.

James Wilson

United fans had high hopes for Wilson back in the day, particularly after he scored a brace on his senior debut against Hull City.

Despite some early signs of promise, Wilson eventually slipped down the pecking order and ended up leaving the club in 2019 following a series of loan spells.

These days you can find him playing for League One outfit Port Vale where he has scored four goals so far this season.
