How to choose the Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

 

In this article we will suggest the best midfielders 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 midfielders of three categories:

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

Best Centre Defensive Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

 
Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Our Choice: SERGIO BUSQUETS

Nationality: Spain
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 89
Age: 27

Busquets is our best choice for this position. He is slow, has bad jumping and probably isn’t better than Matic in his first season. However, he is growing and the best part of his career is still to come.

Best Alternative: NEMANJA MATIC

Nationality: Serbia
Club (first season): Chelsea
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 87
Age: 27

It is not possible to love this player. His physical stats are insane. If he already is one of the best midfielders in the world, imagine how he will be in one or two years.

Second Best Alternative: WILLIAM CARVALHO

Nationality: Portugal
Club (first season): Sporting CP
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 88
Age: 23

If you play with a world-class club, you need to buy him as soon as possible. If you don’t, you have no chances to sign him. In the end of the first season he already has, at least, an overall of 85.

#4: PHILLIP LAHM

Nationality: Germany
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 87
Age: 31

The only problem of this amazing player is his age. You can play with him a few seasons more and, if you wish, you can also use him as right back.

Club (first season): Juventus
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 93

We usually leave the players with less than 23 years old to our young players guide. However, in this case the quality of this midfielder is too obvious. Only James can compete with him.

Rating: 87
Potential (1): 93

#4: TONI KROOS

Nationality: Germany
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 90
Age: 25

Pace isn’t such a big factor in FIFA 16, it’s more about team-play, passing and dribbling. And Kroos has it all. That’s why he is one of the community favourites.

#5: ISCO

Nationality: Spain
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 89
Age: 23

Three midfielders from Real Madrid on the top 5 is something amazing. Isco isn’t on this top because of his club. He is a really talented player and deserves it. Just look to his stats. Aren’t great? Now imagine how he will be when he reaches his maximum potential.

Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Our Choice: LIONEL MESSI

Nationality: Argentina
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Rating: 94
Potential (1): 95

Buying Messi in Career Mode isn’t easy. You know he is the best but how much are you willing to spend?

 
 
 
Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Best Alternative: GARETH BALE

Nationality: Wales
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 91
Age: 26

If you don’t have enough money to buy Messi, your alternative should be Bale. We know he is not cheap but imagine having him in your squad. It looks a dream, isn’t it ?

Second Best Alternative: ARJEN ROBBEN

Nationality: Netherlands
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 90
Potential (1): 90
Age: 31

You know we like to pick young players in career mode, right? But sometimes there are exceptions. You cannot ignore such a good player like Robben. It’s not natural for his age to be like he is.

#4: HULK

Nationality: Brazil
Club (first season): Zenit
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 84
Age: 29

OK. Two exceptions. Hulk already has 29 years old and he will not grow up any more. But he doesn’t need it. Excepting defending, his stats are insane. What a beast!

#5: LUCAS

Nationality: Brazil
Club (first season): Paris Saint Germain
Rating: 82
Potential (1): 85
Age: 23

Finally, someone young. This winger is fast and has good dribbling. There are many good young players for this position, like Salah, Promes, Volland and Carrilo, but Lucas is the best one.

Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Our Choice: CRISTIANO RONALDO

Nationality: Portugal
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 93
Potential (1): 93
Age: 30

He is already 30 but not picking the best player in the game doesn’t make sense, right? He can’t get better because he is already at his absolute best.

 
 
 
Best Midfielders for FIFA 16 Career Mode

Best Alternative: NEYMAR

Nationality: Brazil
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Rating: 88
Potential (1): 93
Age: 23

He needs to improve his passing, physical and defending. Now are you asking: why they picked him to the best alternative? Well, Neymar is one of the few who, one day, may be as good as Ronaldo.

Second Best Alternative: EDEN HAZARD

Nationality: Belgium
Club (first season): France
Rating: 89
Potential (1): 91

#4: MARCO REUS

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

It isn’t easy to choose between Reus and Sánchez. Both have the same age, rating and potential. The Dortmund’s winger has a much better passing and that may makes all the difference.

#5: ALEXIS SÁNCHEZ

Club (first season): Arsenal
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 88
