Are you building your squad but you are not sure about which goalkeepers you should buy ? Take our suggestions of the best goalkeepers for FIFA 16 Career Mode.
How to choose the Best Goalkeepers
In this article we will suggest the best goalkeepers 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 Petr Čech, for example, is 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 goalkeepers of three categories:
- Best of the Best
Ideal for unlimited wallets or for who wants the best.
- Best Deals
Decent GK that you can find at good prices or ending their contracts.
- Best Young
Young GK with great growth. Potential future top players.
Best Goalkeepers for FIFA 16 Career Mode
Our Choice: MANUEL NEUER
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Potential (1): 90
For most football fans, Neuer is currently the best goalkeeper in the world. He may be an expensive player, but he is worth every pound. If you want the best for your team, you need to buy him. However, if you want someone younger there are other good alternatives.
Best Alternative: THIBAUT COURTOIS
Club (first season): Chelsea
Potential (1): 90
The Chelsea’s goalkeeper is a bit slow but he has another great stats. The Belgian player is the only one that can reach Neuer’s level. He is very young which makes him a nice buy to a medium term too.
Second Best Alternative: DE GEA
Club (first season): Manchester United
Potential (1): 89
De Gea was once again the best Manchester United player last season. And he will keep growing. He is, undoubtedly, the third best goalkeeper of the game and the good news is that he is almost running out of contract. Do you think you can be faster than Real Madrid was?
#4: BERND LENO
Club (first season): Bayer 04
Potential (1): 88
Leno has quality to play in any club. Bayer 04 will not be able to hold him for much longer. For whom they are going to lose him? Will it be for you?
#5: MARC-ANDRÉ TER STEGEN
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Potential (1): 88
It’s impossible to talk about this player without comparing him with Leno. Ter Stegen is more expensive but Leno is globally better. Don’t worry if you already bought him. He will be one of the best goalkeepers in a couple of seasons.
#6: ANTHONY LOPES
Club (first season): Olympique Lyon
Potential (1): 86
Anthony Lopes is probably the most consistent goalkeeper of Ligue 1. He is so important to Lyon that recently he has extended his contract until 2020. Lopes has a long career to be played.
#7: HUGO LLORIS
Club (first season): Tottenham Spurs
Potential (1): 84
Everyone knows who is Lloris and how good he is. A good example that a goalkeeper doesn’t need to be very young to be in our shortlist. If you want someone to play now at the highest level, he is your man.
#8: KEVIN TRAPP
Club (first season): PSG
Potential (1): 85
Yes, another German goalkeeper. Sirigu is the reference in the PSG goal but Trapp is the one that will replace him in a near future. You will see…
#9: JASPER CILLESSEN
Club (first season): Ajax
Potential (1): 85
You will need to have a good budget to buy any of the goalkeepers we made reference in this post. However, you don’t need to spend all your money to buy a good goalkeeper. You can buy Cillessen.
#10: STÉPHANE RUFFIER
Club (first season): Saint-Etienne
Potential (1): 84
Ruffier has great stats and he is also an affordable player for most of the top clubs. His quality leaves Joe Hart out of this top 10
1. Manuel Neuer
2. Thibaut Courtois
3. De Gea
4. Bernd Leno
5. Marc-André Ter Stegen
6. Anthony Lopes
7. Hugo Lloris
8. Kevin Trapp
9. Jasper Cillessen
10. Stéphane Ruffier

(1) Potential is an average of estimated rating a player can reach. It doesn’t mean that you will reach that overall nor that you won’t overcome it.

Can you tell me a good keeper for leicester city in 2nd season for fifa 16? I have 32 million sterling
Leno and Anthony Lopes are my suggestions. If you need a GK just for a few seasons, you can also try Handanovic for free. In other hand, if you plan to play many seasons, Perin and Oblak are the best choices
Comment:i have lloris with 88 rating in my career and you say his potentiel is 84
That’s because his potential is 84.
As we published in the end of the article:
“Potential is an average of estimated rating a player can reach. It doesn’t mean that you will reach that overall nor that you won’t overcome it.“
id take handanovic over any of those players …neuer doesn’t even have to play half the time in bundesliga!
Neuer is the best GK to most of the players.
Joe hart is at least top five. I have played with eight of these keepers and he is far more consistent than most of them including Nueur. How is he not in the top ten…
In our opinion he is not good enough to be on top 10.
First of all, he is not as young as other top GK, like Courtois, De Gea and Leno. Then, he will not be better than he is now (except in rare cases). Even now, he is not better than most of the other GK.
What about icardi
Great player. He can reach 86 or more.
What about donnarumma?
Not good enough
What about tomorrow horn I have him 84 and the first season hasn’t finished yet
Personally, I’ve just started my second season with Arsenal and Petr Cech finished the first season with 88 OVR, so I don’t know why you think he doesn’t improve.
Because most of the times he won’t.
I managed to get ruffier up to 90 rated, how is this possible?
Everything is possible. Most of the times it will not happen.
Trapp is good too when he reach 30 years he will be like 87 ovr and i sell it to r madrid for 125.000.000$
When his value only25.000.000$ not long after that his ovr is 92
What about my Sqaud?
GK’s : Courtois , Bürki , Dragowski
Defenders : Jetro Willems , Gaya , Varane, Laporte , Zouma , Vallejo , Rodriguez , Darmian
Midfielders : Calhanoglu , Halihovic, James Rodriguez, Pogba, Tielemans, Baozer, Rafinha, Veratti
Forwards : Correa , Dybala , Embolo , Bertrand Traoré
Playing 4th season Juve. got left 21mln €. i sold Isco for 88mln€ to PSG and Bought James for 120€ 😛 , worth.
What a team! Congratulations. You followed our suggestions.
How is my squad, it is organized in a 3-3-4 (I know very offensive but I like it that way):
GK: Anthony Lopes (86)
Defenders: Alaba (86), Hummels (88), Boateng (87)
Midfielders (CM) Pogba (87), (CAM) Reus (86), (CAM) Sanchez (86)
Forwards: (LW) Neymar (89), (RW) Bale (89), (CF) Messi (95), (CF) Aguero (89)
This is in 2019. Thanks for the opinion
The team is amazing. Don’t forget to buy a few wonderkids for the future.
I suggest buying James Rodriguez his potential is 93 and in that formation he will score tons of goals for you, as well as create them. Place him in the CAM and replace Sanchez.
What about my squad ?
Gk. Mandanda . Oblak
df. Ramos . Zouma. Miranda
Lb. Flipe luis . Fabio countrao
rb. Walker . Juanfrane
cdm. Bosquets. Gabi
Cm . Isco. Thiago alcantra.hamsik
fw. Griezman. Cavani.lewandwiski.cuadrado.higuan
Really nice team. Maybe you should invest in CM position. James, for example.
I have Lioris at an overall 92 right now
That’s more than he usual reaches.

Now at start of 5th season in August I have 86 mil. £(Sterling). SO ANY COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS?
Well, you already have a very good team…
Maybe you should buy a top goalkeeper, like Courtois or Leno.
where is Petr Czech I had him for two seasons and he rose from 85 up to 89 unbelievable but in average I would say he rises up to 88.
Too old for Career Mode
Halfway thru my third season as Man U and Da Gea has demanded a transfer. I have Kepa as my number 2, should I hand him the reigns and let him play his way up (78 overall) or buy?
If you have a good offer, sell him and buy someone from this list.
GK: De Gea, Buffon
Def: smalling, laporte, Darmian, hummels
Mid: Muller, Mata, Bale, schwanstinger, verrati
For: Rooney, Ronaldo, lewandoski, ibra n morata
Can you rate my squad and any suggestions
Defense: Bellerin, Varane, Koschielny, Gibbs, Marquinhos
Midfield: Xhaka, Ramsey, Conquelin, Rafinha, Ozil
Attack: Walcott, Sanchez, Lacazzete, Breel Embolo, Jesé, Campbell
Hi. You need a GK and maybe a strong CM 🙂
Celtic team after 5 years (Including OVR due to development):
Def: R.Rodriguez/87 Tah/86 Varane/88 Bellerin/85
Mid: Januzaj/88 W.Carvalho/87 Halliovic/87 Hulk/86
Att: Dybala/87 Rooney/88
I quite enjoyed the game, I got most of the money from consecutive Champions League victories and my bench just consists of 70-77 rated youngsters from the academy. I would replace Rooney with Rashford as in my save he is developing quite well. I wonder what you think Rodrigo as I put quite a bit of effort into it and your guides have been of great help in moulding the galacticos. Thank you!!!
Thank you so much. Don’t forget to visit us next month to see our choices for FIFA 17 Career Mode.
