Equip Your Team

Gianluigi Donnarumma, of AC Milan and Italy, is the best young goalkeeper in the game reflecting his huge prominence in the game over the last few years. He is the only young goalkeeper with a rating of over 90 and his price in FIFA 19 scares off most potential suitors.

There are a lot of talented goalkeepers at the start of the game with a rating under 70, making it hard for the two to join your team straight away. But as the trend of the modern game insists keepers are as good with their feet as they are with their hands, you may want to examine their full list of attributes.

Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is quite affordable, even as one of FIFA 19 Best Young Players, to those with a budget even though he is the most demanded defenders in the world football with a rating of 80.

The breakthrough of Trent Alexander-Arnold under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool has made him the best young full-back in FIFA 19. With an opening value of over 12 million pounds, his value will only increase as time progresses, therefore if you are building a team in Career Mode and want a full-back who is strong both in attack and defense, look no further than Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Man City’s Phil Foden is also one to watch, with great technical ability and flexibility in terms of his position across the midfield.

However, you will have to look elsewhere to find a front man like Mbappe, as it is impossible for most clubs to sign him due to his incredible value.
