How to choose the Best FIFA 21 Midfielders

In this article we suggest the best FIFA 21 midfielders for Career Mode. Keep in mind that the best players for us may not be for you. It depends on 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.

1 The Best of the Best
Ideal for unlimited wallets or for who wants the best.
