How to choose the Best Defenders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

 

In this article we will suggest the best defenders for FIFA 16 Career Mode that you should be able to use in your club. Keep in mind that the best players for us may not be for you. It depends of your club, other players, formation, transfer budget, wages budget, play style, preferences, etc…

To select the best players, we have mainly into consideration their stats, potential and age. That’s why a few old players are not in this list. Someone who will not be playing for more than two seasons in our club is not such a good buy as someone who will play for five or six seasons.

 

In our website we suggest defenders of three categories:

    Best of the Best
    Ideal for unlimited wallets or for who wants the best.
    Best Deals
    Decent defenders that you can find at good prices or ending their contracts.
    Best Young
    Young defenders with great growth. Potential future top players.

Best Centre Back for FIFA 16 Career Mode

 
Best Defenders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Our Choice: RAPAHEL VARANE

Nationality: France
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 82
Potential (1): 89
Age: 22

You are asking why we picked Varane and not Thiago Silva or Sergio Ramos, for example. Well, it is true that Varane is not the best centre back in the first season but you have plans to play more than one season, right? He should be the first buy in any major club.

Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 89
Age: 27

If you can’t wait until Varane reaches the maximum potential, then you will need someone like Boateng: he’s fast, tall and has amazing stats.

Second Best Alternative: MATS HUMMELS

Nationality: Germany
Club (first season): Borussia Dortmund
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 88
Age: 26

Hummels has been accused of not being a fast centre back, but in FIFA 16 this is not so important. He is not as good as Boateng, but you can play with him at the highest level at least more 5 seasons.

#4: THIAGO SILVA

Nationality: Brazil
Club (first season): Paris Saint Germain
Rating: 88
Potential (1): 88
Age: 31

In the first season, he is the best defender. He can’t get better than that. However, Silva already has 31 which means that he will stop playing in a few years. A younger centre back may be a better choice.

Danilo is not an ordinary player. It is very hard to find top-quality players with so balanced stats. He simply can’t play bad. In a near future he will be undoubtedly the best right back in the world.
