Best Deals in FIFA 16 Career Mode
Best Deal: ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC
Club (first season): Paris Saint Germain
Potential (1): 89
Now that FIFA 16 is slower, Zlatan is really unstoppable. He will play only more one or two seasons but for free you can’t ask much more.
Best Alternative: FELIPE CAICEDO
Club (first season): RCD Espanyol
Potential (1): 83
Caicedo is a very strong player, useful in teams playing with a single striker. He is the one with biggest growth in this top 10.
Second Best Alternative: JONAS
Club (first season): SL Benfica
Potential (1): 82
Benfica signed him for free and now it is your turn. In the meanwhile he reached an average of more than one goal per match.
#4: CLINT DEMPSEY
Club (first season): Sounders FC
Potential (1): 81
This striker is a true legend in United States. Why don’t you invite him to join to your team to show all his skills?
#5: ALEXANDR KOKORIN
Club (first season): Dinamo Moskva
Potential (1): 82
He is the less popular player of this list but he doesn’t mean that he is not as good as they are. In fact, Kokorin is a great signing. He is fast, young and has a nice potential.
#6: JAVIER HERNÁNDEZ
Club (first season): Manchester Utd
Potential (1): 80
Javier Hernández is not a physical player but he is fast and has a good shooting. He is young enough to play more 6 or 7 seasons.
#7: CHARLIE AUSTIN
Club (first season): QPR
Potential (1): 81
The most important thing to say about this player is that he is still in development. In one or two seasons he will be a very good striker for mid-table clubs.
#8: FERNANDO TORRES
Club (first season): Atlético de Madrid
Potential (1): 79
He will not become better than he is now, but his career is not finished yet. Will be you to give him a chance to prove it?

Club (first season): Tottenham Spurs (Free agent)
Potential (1): 79
He was released from his contract by mutual agreement. However, in career mode he is in Spurs. For you it doesn’t matter because you can sign him for free.
#10: PABLO DANIEL OSVALDO
Club (first season): FC Porto
Potential (1): 78
Osvaldo is a very balanced striker. Take a look to how his first season is going and, if you like it, offer him a contract in January.

How are you supposed to get them for free??
They are all in their last year of contract
An off topic question. If you have just started a career mode with Manchester city for example, who have $108 million transfer budget. Will the financial takeover increase it? Also how long does it take for the financial takeover to take effect?
We haven’t tried yet on FIFA 16. Anyone here can help us?
When you use a financial takeover, It’s gonna go to your 1st CM. I don’t know how many days is it gonna take (in FIFA 15, it took me 3 days in game)
In career mode does the young players (below 20 age) height increases and skill moves/weak foot gets upgraded?
Ea doesn’t really care about career mode, but if they did than they could make it into such a good game…. Like upgrading stadium, videos, interviews videos, changing your kit every year etc. If only they cared!
Unfortunately it is not usual. It already happened but it is very rare.
You forgot Pato…
In adebayor you say:For you it doesn’t matter because you can signing him for free.I think you should say sign instead of signing
Can you do the best teams for career mode?
They depend of many factors. You can see the budget list here. We will try to see if there is a way to rating the CM teams.
Fixed. Thank you very much.
Hi i was wondering if you can help me fix my line up
I play the 4-3-3 formation
Gk-De gea and or bravo
Cb- thiago silva and felipe luiz
Cm-sergi roberto (r) and iniesta(l)
Lw-neymar or ronaldo
Rw-messi or cristian tello
And as St-hernandez and or lewandoski
Sorry i also forgot i play
El sharrawy and william as wingers
Assuming that you have a good budget, our suggestion is to buy Varane and James. That’s all what you need.
ive started an arsenal career mode and heres my line up:
CB: KOSCIELNY AND CACERES
CDM: POGBA AND MATUIDI
CAM: OZIL AND CARZOLA
ST: ALEXIS AND lacazette
room for improvement??????????
IM Loooking to maybe replace lacazette
i have changed it a bit now instead of carzola i have isco and ignore my comment below i accidently posted twice sorry
It is better now.
Buy a younger keeper and a top CB.
Griezmann can be the best replacement for Lacazette
