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 the wisest move 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 – £50.5 million
  • Wage budget – £170,000 a week

What the team needs

  • Right back
  • Striker
  • Goalkeeper  

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 pretty 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:

  • Javi Fuego – £6 million

Total Received = £6 million

New Budget = £56.5 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 (£43m):

Name: Fabinho (76)

Cost: £13 million (Monaco)

Is he worth it?

  • He’s still a little raw but by February/March, he should be close to the 80s and has the potential to grow to around 85-86 overall, and at £13 million, is a bargain signing.

Alternative option: Serge Aurier (80) – £21m (PSG)  

Name: Divock Origi (76)

Cost: £7 million (Liverpool)

Is he worth it?

  • Valencia don’t necessarily need a new starting forward, but Origi is something of a beast with the potential to reach 86

 Alternative option – Breel Embolo (Basel) -76 – £11 million

Name: Bernd Leno (84)

Cost: £21 million (Leverkusen)

Is he worth it?

  • Valencia are in need of a ‘keeper with a slight bit more potential and who’s younger than the 30-year-old Diego Alves in goal, and at £21m, you can snap up Leno, who’s one of the Bundesliga’s best keepers and has the potential to grow to 88. The next Neuer?

 Alternative option – Jasper Cillessen (Ajax) – 76 – £18 million

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: Bartlomiej Dragowski (71)

Cost: £2.1 million (Jagiellonia)

Is he worth it?

  • Not much to work with here, but he’s 18, young and has bags of potential. A stash-and-dash prospect your future self will thank you for buying
