If Messi is too expensive to you and you still want the best of the best, why don’t you try Luis Suárez ? He’s really amazing. He is expensive but the quality has its price.

Second Best Alternative: ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI

Rating: 87
Potential: 89
Age: 26

Lewandowski isn’t as good as Messi or Luis Suárez. However, he is a great player for any team, like it happens with Aguero, Falcão and Diego Costa. Where is Ibrahimovic ? Well, he is THE striker but in our opinion he wasn’t made for Career Mode due to his age.

          1. Ok do you know any fast Central midfielders for example a player like serero from ajax?

  1. What a blunder Mr Lopes, Barca fans will definitely have you on their blacklist- your list says Messi plays for their fiercest rival!

          LCB Laporte 86

          ST Messi 95
          RW Bale 92
          Any thoughts on how to improve!

          1. Make your formation 4-2-3-1.Put Martinez in CM and get a great young centreback like Stones that way Isco and Martinez are your CMs and keep your wingers the same but utilise Ronaldo as a striker and messi behind him.

          2. GK Neuer 94
            LB Marcelo 85

  2. I think Timo Werner 18 year old striker for Stuttgart also deserves a mention 70-85 and he has wonderful sprint stats when you start with him

  3. I think that Rordigo from Benfica is a beast, had him in my team for a couple of seasons and now he is a 87 rated striker yet he is only 26 years old

  4. Every body must have el-shaarawy in their team hes the fastest player in the game and in just two seasons he’s rated 89 now

  5. I got Berahino from west brom using fulham in championship for only £1.7m and only 6000$ sallery. My best buy i would say.

  6. i think jackson martinez should be mentionned, never had a game where he did not grow into a player of 86 or 87 in 2 to 3 seasons.
    plus he is already 27 so not so expensive, sorry voor shitty english

  7. I need a CM who isn’t too old but good at passing. Any recommendations? I already have Herrera, Fernandinho, Rabiot and Loftus-Cheek. Thanks!

  8. trust me get Thiago I’ve got him to a 86 in 2 seasons. kinda like xavi but just quicker and scores a fair amount of goals. I got him for like 16m.

  9. Just wanted to through out prob one person im amazed no one has said, understand you have a limited list, but what about Wijnildum from PSV?? cheap buy at the start and after couple seasons at 87 and seems to always captain my team. can run by anyone with him and been my top scorer at Man UTD from midfield two seasons in a row!!! also Angel Correa disappeared from my game 🙁

  10. harvey vickers

    I need someone with a high workrate and stamina preferably a winger/forward. (under 15 million plz)

  11. Hey Rodrigo, it’s me again… My Man UTD team in my second season
    De Gea 83
    Rafael 77
    Marquinhos 79
    Jones 81
    Shaw 76
    Ander Herrera 81
    Strootman 81
    Rooney 85
    Fischer 79
    Cavani 85
    Di Maria 86
    Lindegaard 77
    De Sciglio 77
    Vlaar 74
    Juan Mata 85
    Blind 79
    Januzaj 78
    J. Hernandez 81

    I sold Van Persie for Cavani and i’m thinking I might swap it around again so I get v. Persie. Also lost players like Valencia and Young. Plus Viktor Fischer is a great young player at the age of 21!!

  12. Pieter Verhoeven

    Look into Benteke as well from Aston Villa, hidden gem, decently fast, great strength, shotpower and finishing! 23 years old first season, I had him for 1 season he is already 83 and I sold him to PSG for $120 million

  13. And can u suggest a good striker partnership like a strong striker with a pacy striker with good high potential?

  14. sold Tim Krul for 56mil and Sofiane Feghouli for 91mil. Feghouli is a must if your looking for an attacking midfielder: quick, young, can dribble, can pass, can shoot, can cross. brilliant young player!

      1. Frank Gardner

        Into my 3rd season I need a CAM, Oscar had to be sold cause he didn’t like the cold weather in England…Lol. Bought Isco in an Exchange deal with Madrid, but he’s not as good as Oscar. Already have Max Meyer & Throgan Hazard. Who do you suggest I buy?

  15. I have the Seatle Sounders first season … 2.5mill, 355,000 for wagers ! Any ideas for a midfielder ?

  16. Started a career with valencia suggest a fast, strong and overpowered striker who can be reliable enough to lead my frontline all by himself!

  17. Plz suggest a reliable striker who is fast, strong and overpowered enough to lead my teams frobtline all by himself

  18. Guys if you have a really los budget team like I do (Accrington Stanley) you should definitely buy AKPOM from Arsenal. You can get him for only $35k ans 2k budget approximately and he really is OP. He is really pacey and has relatively good finishing. Definitely the top striker for low budget teams.

  19. I have a career with Newcastle, does anyone know a good striker (80+) that is younger than 27 that I can get for 14mil with 100k wage?

  20. Hi, im trying to clean up newcastle, strikers i currently have riviere, cisse, perez and purchased paulo dybala who has been awesome to play with! all are young and pretty good strikers though i feel like i feel like im missing someone pacey, big and strong whos good with crosses like maybe lukaku or benteke? which do you think i should give up for lukaku or benteke?

  21. I bought Varane in 14 million from Real Madrid and sold him in 60 million to Manchester City at the 1st season January transfer window.

  22. sandro from Barcelona b is a good signing as well, he is on 77 at age 22 in my 4th season. I have him at hull and am in Europa league. my team is. GK vagner DEF chambers, jonny evans, hernandez, abner MID ruben neves, Livermore, jeff Louis (another hidden gem) gnabry, ince ATT either sandro or harry kane.

  23. I have Messi, Aguero,Lewndowski, and Suarez; Who should i sell i want to keep 1. (I’m in my 2nd season with Chicago fire since I’m from chicago and i used the team editor to get moneyyy$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)

  24. What about Rodrigo vs. Diego Costa?

    Who is the best buy for the money? And what is the biggest difference between them?

  25. You should get Hakan Çalhanoglu, beast CAM reached 90 from 77 in three seasons. Amazing player!!

  26. Which is the best striker for Liverpool, worth around 30-35 million or less under 25 years of age (First Season) except all Barclays Premire League Strikers.

    And who is the best Right Back for Liverpool.

    1. Lewandowski is great but 35 millions may not be enough to convince Bayern. Mitrovic is much cheaper but he is much younger too.
      For RB you can try Carvajal, Dani Alves for free or De Sciglio.

  27. Anthony Chiaurro

    Rodrigo what about the st from Barcelona B dongou Tasfack he’s a outstanding player and who I think is one of the biggest steals in fifa he’s young fast and has high potential

  28. I got ronaldo for man united by offering 475k a week and 55m and kevin prince boateng
    I got messi for man united by offering 900k a week and 60m and juan mata
    I got bale for man united by offering 250k a week and 11m and falcao
    I got neymar and isco on a pre contract. neymar wages is 230k isco’s 150k

    1. AlbalooshiGamer

      I tried to sign Messi on a pre contract…. I requested him a 2mill wage but yet he rejected..
      I even tried To sign Ronaldo on a pre contract… I requested him a 500k wage and he accepted…
      What shld I do fr Messi?

  30. Alexandre Lacazette is a great striker. He has a good profile he is young and he comes from a small club so he is not too expensive. He is a very good investment for top clubs. Trust me he is one of the hottest strikers in fifa 15.

  31. I made a career mode with Manu.i tried to buy different players that i used to buy.
    Gk de gea and valdes
    Defenders are same i like manus defence i didnt buy or sell Anybody.
    Midfielders are thiago herrera blind götze dimaria mkhitaryan
    Strikers are muller and muriel
    I also have valencia and i have nani and januzaj on the loan so i didnt buy more rm or lm. This is my first season but in the second season i try to buy a good st and one more cm i think khedira and sturridge are good options

  32. Hey this is a little bit off topic, but could someone gift me all the career mode pro player boosts?

  33. You should really go for Luis Muriel! After three years, he now is a 83. Fast, good dribbling, good shot, excellent finishing! You won’t regret

  34. My career mode team:-
    [Formation is 4-4-2]
    And I am planning to bring James Rodriguez from Real Madrid for 90 million as Gerrard will be retiring.
    Any thoughts on improving it??
    Thank You

  35. I’ve just started a career with Aston villa and sold benteke for 30mill, I have agbohnlahor for pace but I need a strike partner for him who’s tall and good in the air, have you got any suggestions?

  42. I bought dybala in my first season and I keep getting big offers from big clubs.Should I sell him ang get somebody better or do I keep him ?

  43. 1. Arturo Vidal won’t fit in Chelsea would he?
    2. Players from the youth academy. Do they really grow to their potential stats? And does loaning them out seem to help?

  44. Cristiano Ronaldo should be There, Ge is the perfect strikers,although he isn’t striker he can act like one, he is fast, has a good shooting, good passing, is tall and is good jumping, 5 star skill moves and 5 star week foot, he is the perfect striker!

    My team how can I improve this

  46. Comment: Should i buy bellerin for real madrid , in my 3rd season, is he good enough any other options for RB

  47. Blake R. Oliver

    I bought Lacazette for £18m. Scored 42 goals in the league (1st season). Already on 36 goals in the league (2nd season) NB: Legendary Difficulty

  48. I started with bristol city so I could go from league 1 to premier and I signed Luis Muriel to my league 1 side. In 4 seasons he’s now 86 or with 98 spd complete foward and 98 dribble. He’s nasty. I also signed Adam Campbell from Newcastle as a back up striker with spd.

  49. I had Mitrovic & Zivkovic as Strikers with Tielemans just behind them and it was so good!
    Zivkovic scored 37 goals and got 7 assists
    Mitrovic scored 15 goals and got 11 assists
    Tielemans scored 7 goals and got 17 assists

    The main problem is my midfield. Can you suggest a young CM that can play near Tielemans?

    Thanks in advance!

  50. I’m using Juventus on my career, I changed formation to 4-4-2 and as a result can no longer find position for Pirlo. Because of my style of play I find him too slow when my team attacks. I Could use him as a CM but i got Pogba and Vidal and Marchisio. Any suggestion how I can use Pirlo? i know hes good with long passes, penalty and FK but I don’t really need those to win my games.

  51. Any good young cm and I am talking younger than 20 who I could use for Southampton academy so that he can grow in a few seasons before I use him in my squad.I need players with high potential.

    1. Of course Ronaldo is better but older too and much much expensive.
      “If Messi is too expensive to you and you still want the best of the best, why don’t you try Luis Suárez ?”

  52. Hector villalba
    I bought him in first season an now he is 90
    He is so good and his sprğnt speed is 99 now

  53. Can’t think of a team to do a career mode with need ideas for teams I would like teams with budget region with 8.5 mill and 13 mill

  54. Hey Rodrigo, Ive got a arsenal career. My first season. My last career mode till FIFA 16.
    This is my best team: 4-2-2-2

    robben 91
    for 1st season ,is my team good

  56. I don’t know about you but I usually have a very good experience with Paco Alcacer, a striker for Valencia. 79-83 in first year, reached 87/88 multiple times later.

  57. Which is a striker as a backup for Suarez in barcelona first season which can come at low price and is pacey and good finisher?

  58. Good day! To all , really I don’t know from where this list appeared: Lukaku, zivkovic , Benteke,Mitrovic )))) it funny they never be a best sign , believe me, I spend a lot of time in this game, and can’t image for how long need to wait until they grow and start scoring , same as depay or iturbe ( winger) the price is really amazing, for what! I suggest don’t buy them and after 5 years u will see they not grow but still high prices, unbelievable! Best solution is Lacassete & Gameiro each of them is 18ml but after 2-3 years u will be more than happy , definitely better than spend a 30ml for Lukaku, which is even not a dribbler!! Other good solution is edit teams, and move from barca , baern and real all players to other teams, each to different team, the gave will more interesting, other players growing, I’ve buy Mkhitaryan from borusia now he is 86 but I spend only 18 ml, also for center is will be good solution Pogba, Mata( is really amazing) Oscar( January u can buy him cheap) , but don’t buy Gotze he is on peak level and not improve and slow! Winger of course Neymaer and Sterling make fantastic game with Benzema or Lacassete! Enjoy the game

  59. Dear Mr.Rodrigo , I get one question , why the game , sometimes have such problems: one off stricker with rank more then 88 suffer that he is not sure that can score a goal , every season twise , and simply score only 10 goals per season, hence why his price is 50-60 million, I mean that engine in this game have a problem, because if someone spend such big money for players, it’s mean that he should scores, otherwise he should be not so expensive! Other problem , team limit is 42 and if u want to make exchange between teams, it’s impossible)))) also on friendly matches only three changes! I think makers should check the rules and pay more attention for this! Best regards

      1. messi 94
        neymar 91
        suarez 92
        bale 90
        this my line up others are also 80+ and it is my 2nd season

  60. I know I’m late but Clinton N’jile is straight beast mode and know one knows about him, fastest player I’ve ever played with, blows by defenders every time, too easy almost. I have him at age 26 now with 98 acceleration 96 sprint 95 shoot power 94 dribbling 93 ball control 93 agility, and he was cheap when I got him, like 10 million.

    1. Parvinder Singh Saini

      I purchased him easily bro. The only player who doesn’t leave his Club for me is Gerard Pique. All others come happily. You just have to offer them huge amounts of wages and crucial first team player role.
