As someone who is relatively new to FM as far as manager games goes I'm having some difficulty around scouting regen wonderkids. It might just be that I'm confused about how it actually works, but I'll start my scouts around the regen dates for each nation, with settings of minimum .5 CA and minimum 3.5 PA with a maximum age of 19. I'm getting some good results but for instance in Germany they're all already signed to Bayern, Dortmund etc.
Am I misunderstanding something or is it just a case of buying them off those clubs?
I was under the impression they'd start at lower level clubs, or be free agents to take on trials?
Currently in my first season playing as Liverpool.
