FIFA 18 wonderkids

Fraser Gilbert runs you through the exciting youngsters with the highest potential in FIFA 18’s single-player mode

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

FIFA’s Career Mode lasts for 15 whole seasons, and if you’re hoping to achieve long-term success then you’ll need to build for the future. Of course, there are so many options at your disposal that it can prove tough to know who to spend your precious cash on.

That’s where FFT comes in. We’ve identified every FIFA 18 wonderkid who begins Career Mode with a potential of 90 or higher (at time of writing). If you train them well, pay them handsomely and offer plenty of valuable game time, then you’ll soon have the world’s very best players lining your squad.

13. Ezequiel Barco

Rating: 72, Potential: 90

Need to know: The youngest of FIFA 18’s top wonderkids arrives in the form of 18-year-old Ezequiel Barco. The Independiente star boasts 90 acceleration, 85 agility and 81 sprint speed attributes, favouring LM, CM or CAM roles in-game. Sign him up, and watch as his overall rating flourishes in seasons to come.

12. Youri Tielemans

Rating: 80, Potential: 90

Need to know: Monaco’s new, €23m signing sees a slight boost applied to his FIFA rating this year, with his potential ability hitting the 90 mark. The 20-year-old Tielemans signed a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 champions back in May, offering them plenty of time to develop the talented Belgian into a worldwide superstar.

11. Marcus Rashford

Rating: 81, Potential: 90

Need to know: The pacy Rashford is equipped with 93 acceleration and 92 sprint speed in FIFA 18 - a lethal combination in attack. His potential has also increased this year, allowing the prolific young striker to become one of the world’s top forwards in time. You’ll struggle to pry him away from Old Trafford, though.

10. Andreas Christensen

Rating: 81, Potential: 90

Need to know: Since returning from his loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, Chelsea’s Christensen has found himself a regular at Stamford Bridge. The 21-year-old Denmark international is clearly expected to thrive given his 90 potential in FIFA 18, a figure which sees him listed as the only defender in our line-up.
