#GamingBytes: 5 young prodigies to sign in FIFA 19
FIFA 19 is coming out soon and one of the favorite ways to play is the career mode. We all love managing a club and living out our dream of lifting a silverware. However, a crucial part of the club management is the player acquisition. With this in mind, we bring you five young players to sign in FIFA 19.
Why buy young players?
Some gamers tend to buy high profile players like Messi or Ronaldo depleting most of their budget. However, the smart move is to buy young players and bring up their rating through rigorous training and playtime. Furthermore, young players can replace your retiring squad members, thereby forming a balanced organic team. Lastly, if you don't like them, you can always sell or loan them.
Who is the ideal goal-keeper?
In today's football transfer market, most good goal-keepers are so highly priced that it is nearly impossible to acquire them. However, keep an eye out for AC Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma. Aged only 19, the goal-keeper has the potential to reach 93 from his current 82 rating. Though his initial rating itself makes him a good purchase, he may cost on the steeper side.
The best defenders to watch out for
Some of the best-rated defenders are now getting old and might soon retire. In FIFA 19 it's smarter to buy young defenders with potential. The first name that stands out is Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt. The 19-year-old center back has the potential to reach the highest-rated defender Sergio's 91 rating. Another notable defender is Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, who can peak at 88.
What about the mid-fielders?
The mid-field is one of the key positions in the team. It is the cohesion that holds the defense and offense together. One of the best talents you could hope to snap up is the 19-year-old Ezequiel Barco from Atlanta United FC. He has a current rating of 74, but with his perseverance on the pitch, he can reach his maximum potential of 89.
The best forwards you should buy
Some of the best young forwards you can buy are Kylian Mbappe who can go up to 95, Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus who peaks at 92 and Barcelona's Dembele who can reach 91. However, a young player you can snap up for lesser is Real Madrid's 17-year-old Vinicius Junior who can reach 92 from his current 77.
