FIFA 19 Wonderkids You Need to Sign

Looking to get the inside tips on the hottest young players available in FIFA’s ultra-popular Career mode?  Well, we have you covered in our complete Wonderkid guide that helps break down and detail all of the best young players in each position that have the highest potential to rise into stardom with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Modric, and even Ramos.  

It should be noted though, that for the purpose of this guide, we have only selected players between the age of 17 to 21 and have them listed in order of highest potential.

Before you go ahead and start purchasing some of the best young talent in FIFA 19, it is important that you understand some of the key tips and tricks that are needed before you buy.

  • In most cases, high-rated players such as Ronaldo and Messi are usually out of the question for most players in Career mode, especially as you just begin to get started. So how do you purchase the best talent available while on a budget? Well, you’ll actually be surprised at just how much potential a young up and coming star may have, as a player rated in the low 60’s could potentially reach the high 80’s after just a few seasons. For this reason, wonderkids are highly sort after.
  • The best thing about young talent is the fact that if they are below an overall rating of 80, they can usually be snapped up significantly cheaper than most already established players.
  • With many highly regarded players nearing retirement, wonderkids can be a great way to build up a squad that can potentially replace well-known squad members once they retire, without having to fork out unnecessary money. 
  • One of the most important things to remember when purchasing a young up and coming star is that their estimated potential is not guaranteed, as it ultimately comes down to a number of factors such as training and playing time.
  • It’s always important to weigh up whether or not it is worth your time and money negotiating for a player with big clubs, as they will usually be very reluctant to let go of high potential players.

EditThe Best Young Goalkeepers With The Greatest Overall Potential

Leading the top of the list is the up and coming Milan goalkeeper, Donnarumma, who has the potential to reach an overall rating of 93, which is up 11 points from his current overall rating of 82. Another surprising name on the list is Christian Fruchtl, who has the potential to jump a staggering 21 points. It is highly recommended that you pick him up while he is cheap, as he is only rated 65 overall and has huge potential to grow.

Here are the best young goalkeepers with the highest-rated potential in FIFA 19.

EditThe Best Young Defenders With The Greatest Potential In FIFA 19

Leading the defensive list, Matthijs de Ligt has the potential to reach the same rating as the current defensive superstar, Sergio Ramos. While he isn’t going to be extremely cheap, he is definitely worth picking up if you’re looking for the next leading defender in the sport.

If you’re on the cheaper side of things you’re definitely in luck, as up and coming stars such as Ethan Ampadu, Reece James, and Lars Lukas Mai all have the potential to jump over 20 points, taking them all into the mid to high 80’s. Thanks to their current low overall ratings, their transfer fees will barely dent your budget.
