How to choose the Best Midfielders for FIFA 18 Career Mode

 

In this article we will suggest the best midfielders for FIFA 18 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 be ending their contracts.
 
✔️ Best Young
Under 23 midfielders with great growth. Potential future top players.

BEST CHOICE

N’GOLO KANTÉ
Nationality: France 🇫🇷
Club (first season): Chelsea
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 90
Age: 26

Kanté is our best choice for this position. He won the Premier League best player award which is unsual for someone who plays as a centre defensive midfielder.

CASEMIRO
Nationality: Brazil 🇧🇷
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 85
Potential (1): 89
Age: 25

Add Casemiro to your watch list. He isn’t cheap but if you have the chance to buy him, do it. He will be even better in the future than he is now.

FABINHO

Another defensive midfielder with great potential. If you don’t know if you should buy him or no, we will make the things easier to you: do it.

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO
Nationality: France 🇫🇷
Club (first season): Chelsea
Rating: 82
Potential (1): 88
Age: 23

It’s fair to say that Chelsea has the best defensive midfielders in the world. Bakayoko is not a top player yet, but if you give him time and let him play, he will become one of the best CDMs in just a few seasons.

ARTURO VIDAL
Nationality: Chile 🇨🇱
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 87
Age: 30

It is not possible to not love this player. His physical stats are insane. He is one of the best midfielders in the world and the only reason to not be on the top of our list is his age.

PAUL POGBA
Nationality: France 🇫🇷
Club (first season): Manchester United
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 92
Age: 24

Pogba was, until last season, the most expensive player of the history. We don’t know if he is as good as United’s fans think he is, but we are sure about his value in FIFA 18 Career Mode.

TONI KROOS

Rating: 90
Potential (1): 90

Kroos has the highest rating but he will not improve much more. If you want the best midfielder now, that’s him who you are looking for. He’s slow and very expensive but no one is perfect, right?

LIONEL MESSI
Nationality: Argentina 🇦🇷
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Rating: 93
Potential (1): 93

While Messi plays, he always will be the best player in the world. Well, him and Ronaldo. We give preference to younger players but Messi still has five good seasons to play.

GARETH BALE

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?

OUSMANE DEMBELE

Rating: 83
Potential (1): 92

What a player! Dembele is one of the most desired players this year and it’s easy to understand why. He’s ready to play in any club and, in a couple of years, he will be better than almost everyone.

BERNARDO SILVA
Nationality: Portugal 🇵🇹
Club (first season): Manchester City
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 91
Age: 23

Bernardo Silva has one of the highest dribbling stats in the world. It’s a really pleasure to watch him play. Always with the ball glued to his feet and the head up. Maybe it’s time to watch him playing for your team.

CRISTIANO RONALDO

He is already 32 but not picking one of the best players in the game doesn’t make sense, right? He can’t get better because he is already at his absolute best.

One of the things we love about football is to see young talents replacing older players. Carrasco looks a player of another planet. He is a good example of how the future of this sport is guaranteed.
