There’s a whole host of bargain transfers up for grabs in the career mode, you’ve just got to know where to look and who to get. We’re going to give you the top 10 bargain buys that you can acquire to start building up a dream team to qualify for honours in the long run.
1. Alexander Merkel
Alexander Merkel is a very decent central midfielder who can put in a good tackle, as well as driving the team forward and chipping in with the odd goal too. He’s blessed with terrific ball control, dribbling and his range of pass is extremely good too. He can take long distance shots and work the opposition goalkeeper when called upon as well. You can get Merkel for around £7M at the young age of 21.
2. Ben Davies
The Swansea City LB Ben Davies was one player that we covered in our best BPL U21 video a while back. He is dirt cheap and his overall starts at a very low 69, but you can get his rating up to 85 if you play him consistently over the course of your seasons.He’s also at a very young age of 20 years old so an amazing prospect.
3. Adnan Januzaj
Adnan Januzaj has burst onto the Premier League stage this season with some very impressive performances for Manchester United. He is still only 18 years young, and if you get him on a seasons long-loan deal, you can set a buy at the end of the loan fee for an astonishing £500,000. If played reguarly, Januzaj will develop and get an eventual rating of 81 which is quite incredible.
4. Pajtim Kasami
You may recall his outstanding wonder goal for Fulham against Crystal Palace in the Barclays Premier League recently. Pajtim Kasami is a perfect CAM for any team that’s looking to build for the future, and his age at the start of the game is 21 and he develops quite rapidly as well. Literally an all-rounder, Kasami is tall for headers, he can pass, shoot and dribble when called upon to make a terrific acquisition to any squad.
5. Dwight Gayle
This tricky Crystal Palace winger was playing non-league football for bishops stortford not so long ago, before moving to Dagenham & Redbridge and then Peterborough United before moving to the EPL newcomers. Gayle’s rating starts at 68 but he rapidly gains stats and becomes a first-team member of your squad in no time. The great thing about him though, is he is really cheap to buy and is a terrific prospect for the future of your club once signed.
6. Alexandre Lacazette
The Olympique Lyonnais striker/winger Lacazette is a really decent buy, as he also costs near to nothing and is equipped with 5-star skill moves. He has high attacking work rate and his overall starts at 75, with a potential of 82 if played on a regular basis.
Kelvin is the heart and soul of the FC Porto team, and is an absolute must if you want bargain players that develop quickly for your FIFA 14 career mode. He’s blessed with terrific curve and dribbling stats and is able to play on wither side of the wings. He can be acquired for as little as £3M and he starts at the tender age of 20.
8. Rubén Blanco
This Celta de Vigo goalkeeper starts at an abysmal 65 rating and over the course of his playing career will eventually go up to 81. He is easily the biggest bargain when it comes to keepers and is actually a really top class shot-stopper too.
9. Sergi Roberto
You shouldn’t be frightened by the fact that the FC Barcelona plays for such a big club, as he starts the career mode at 21 years of age, and a 72 rating. So he’s very much a fringe player at the Catalan club and is easily available for transfer. If played loads of times throughout his career, Roberto can gain various Specialities and get a 86 rating at the end of it.
10. Cristian Tello
Cristian Tello Herrera is another youth academy product of Barca, and he starts at a 79 rating, but you can get him up to 89 near to the end of his career. He plays LW/RW/CF/ST and he has blistering pace that will be ideal for any type of wing play. The other OP statistics that he possesses include acrobat, ball control, dribbling, shot power, stamina and finishing.
