The best young players on EA FC 24 in career mode

Here we list the players according to their position, with their general rating at the start of the season on the game and their maximum potential. Be careful because roster updates will change these figures, often reducing the potential for advancement (the maximum rating remains the same but the player will start with a better rating). So last year, a player like Martinelli saw his starting rating progress with each update, while maintaining his maximum potential.

Note that our lists are classified in ascending order of base rating. Players listed in bold are those we recommend buying, since rating and potential aren’t everything in career mode.

The best wonderkids goalkeepers

A position that we do not consider as interesting as the others, since the evolution of goalkeepers is relatively long (limiting the interest in developing them within the framework of an exchange), it is however important to know the potential Max from a young goalkeeper.

If Guillaume Restes has incredible room for improvement, a goalkeeper like Marco Carnesecchi is an option allowing a young player to start from the start.

The best young defenders in career mode

Here we place the best young defenders for the career mode of EA FC 24. These positions are interesting because they are quite expensive in the game, which allows you to make good capital gains by buying players who are still young to resell them for one or two seasons later.

We’ve always loved Geertruida, Saliba and Baldé in career mode, hence their presence here in bold. Although not the cheapest, these three are extremely effective in play and will help your defense turn a corner.

Midfield wonderkids on EA FC 24

Note that we also love Jude and Enzo, who were our favorite midfielders in FIFA 23 in career mode. However, their price is now exorbitant, limiting their interest in the vast majority of scenarios.

Although we love Wirtz and Musiala, their price is now too high to be used in small clubs. Note that Simmons is on loan at Leipzig, which could be a limit in certain cases for a purchase.

The best young strikers in career mode

Here we bring together the best young attackers, in different positions. For greater visibility, we have grouped each position. Note that Haaland and Vinicius Jr are listed here because they are under 24, although they are already superstars.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia rarely left an impression on us during our seasons on FIFA 23, just like Foden. Watch out for Fati who is on loan to Brighton.

Although on loan, Angelo is a great option on the right for a young player who will become a star. In addition, Diaby has always been effective for us, in offensive schemes his speed can make the difference.

Hojlund and Adeyemi have always been great options, both as super-subs and as starters. If their price is now high, it is possible to make a nice capital gain on the Man United player after one or two seasons.
