For those gamers that don’t like playing online, manager mode is their FIFA haven. A place where you can take apart any team you want, and completely construct a new one, however you please. Sometimes though, it helps to have a helping hand in explaining how to best use different teams on Career Mode. So, RealSport have devised a team-by-team guide for anyone looking to start a manager mode on FIFA 16. A list of some other useful FIFA guides:

Complete Premier League Team-By-Team Guide For Completing Career Mode:


General Tips

  • Always choose the lenient option when selecting your ‘financial strictness’. This way you get 85% of the money that the board receives from outgoing transfers to spend on new players
  • Use the new ‘Training’ feature – even if you can’t be bothered to always carry out the drills, simulate 5 drills every week, it’s a useful way to help your players grow outside of matches
  • Remember, it’s not always wise to spend all your transfer budget in summer as you could need a few replacements come January, so if possible, save a few of those pennies for a rainy day!


  • Transfer budget – £7 million
  • Wage budget – £30,000

What the team needs

  • Central midfielder
  • Winger
  • Striker


Who you should get rid of

A general rule here is to sell off players that are old (31+), as on FIFA, their ratings can deteriorate fast, so it’s best to cash in on them while they’re still valuable. Below is the names of the players you should get rid of and the lowest value at which you should sell that player:

  • Lasse Vigen Christensen – £600,000
  • Adam Taggart – £500,000

Total Received = £1.1 million

New Budget = £8.1 million

Who you should buy (with the smaller budget)

If you can, aim to sign younger players, as FIFA has this thing for making a majority of all decent young players develop pretty well, even if they don’t in real life. If you can’t sell the ‘deadweight’ players, the following are those you can sign within your original budget (£7 million):

Name: Assane Gnoukouri (69)

Cost: £1.3 million (Inter Milan)

Is he worth it?

  • Gnoukouri is on the fringes of Inter’s first team in real life but is the dynamic CM Fulham need. He comes cheap and has bags of room to improve (potential jump to 83-84 overall)

Alternative option: Manu Garcia – £1.3 million (Man City)

Name: Vaclav Cerny (67)

Cost: £1.7 million (Ajax)

Is he worth it?

  • Cerny is perfect for Fulham in that they already have two slightly more first-team ready players in Cairney & Kacaniklic, but they don’t have the potential Cerny does, which makes him ideal
  • You can either use him right away or stash him for when you reach the Premier League. Although, I’d suggest chucking him in the first-team straight away as his potential is crazy (potential to grow by +15-20)

Alternative option: Isaiah Brown (67) – £1.1 million (Vitesse)

Name: Nouha Dicko (70)

Cost: £2.2 million (Wolves)

Is he worth it?

  • Dicko is slightly further down the development line than Moussa Dembele, who at the start of any career mode is rated a paltry 66, demanding you to sign someone more first-team ready (according to FIFA)
  • Dicko is exactly that – a young, hungry striker who has his best years ahead of him and could well grow to 75 by the time you’re promoted

Alternative option: Kelechi Iheanacho – £2.7 million (Man City)


Who you should buy (with the larger budget)

If you do manage to sell the ‘deadweight’ players listed above, these are the extra players you should think about signing. Each player’s rating is shown in brackets:

Name: Donny van de Beek (68)

Cost: £1.6 million (Fulham)

Is he worth it?

  • Great back-up central midfielder to ease into the first-team as the season goes along.
  • You could adjust your formation to play with a number 10 where he excels most

Name: Rafik Zekhnini (63)

Cost: £900,000 (Odds BK)

Is he worth it?

  • At just 17, Zekhnini is slightly raw but is still ready to play a role in the latter half of the season
  • A great buy-and-stash option here and also a decent substitute to bring off the bench
