Best Free Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Our Choice: RASMUS ELM

Nationality: Sweden
Club (first season): Kalmar FF
Rating: 79
Potential (1): 82
Age: 27

Elm is amazing with the ball in his feet. It is not usual to find a CDM with such great passing. He defends well and he is also the one that starts the attack.

Nationality: Spain
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 84

Just like Alonso, Thiago Motta is ending his career. They are not the same players they were in the past, but there is lack of quality defensive midfielders in the last year of contract.
