Yes, another Spanish right back. If you play with a top club, maybe you will have to put him in the reserves. In two or three seasons he will be ready to assume the right side of the first team’s defence.

  1. Hello , I think you should also include Gimenez (ATL Madrid) in top 10 young CB . His rating is 79 and potential is 87.

  2. Alaba is probably in the best defenders list but he had great potential, he can play in the midfield or centre back, and he upgrades quite quickly, can you tell me his potential please?

  3. Hey man thanks for the this list. i would like to you ask how would you rate aleksandar dragovic. Is he a good buy?

  4. Mr. Lopes , I’m impressed by your list ..yiu have helped me in so many ways…speaking of defenders sir , Jonathan Tah is awesome ..19 76

  5. Thanks a lot for your list, Mr.Lopes. It’s very helpful. Btw, I use your list to sign player in FIFA 14 ???. I am amazed that they’re cheaper than i think.

  6. Hello Rodrigo Lopes, great list ! I’m doing a Borussia Dortmund career mode in Fifa 16 and I need a ST, a Winger, a LB or RB, a CAM a CM and a GK. I would like to have young players with lots of potential but also grown and already improved players. What are your suggestions?

    PS: Do you speak Portuguese? I know you’re a Benfica fan! I’m a Porto fan and I speak Portuguese!

    • Hi Yuri.
      Sim, falo. Você quer uma equipa quase inteira. Se seguir as sugestões que encontra aqui, de certeza que irá se sair bem. Por exemplo, Bernd Leno é um ‘must buy’.
