Best youngsters to buy in FIFA 22 Career Mode

Buying young, talented, footballers is a model many clubs across the world follow, we show you how to successfully replicate that in FIFA 22.
Career Mode in FIFA 22, the game mode which allows you to take any club (or your own unique creation for the first time this year) and mould them in your image, is promised a revamp this year.

One aspect of Career Mode that has always brought smiles to peoples faces is the buying and selling of young players. Bringing them into your club, turning them into superstars or advancing their career to a stage where you get a megabucks offer, is what football is all about and FIFA games have always been able to capture this aspect of the beautiful game particularly well.

And with FIFA 22 releasing in a few short weeks, you may be now wondering who the best wonderkids are to purchase in Career Mode, the Rooney's and Kante's of the future and if that is the case, we are here to help.

We list here 20 of the top young players at the start of your FIFA 22 Career Mode, all of which have the potential to be starters for your club but some of whom could also go on to become the stars of the future.
