Wage: £176,000 a week
Since joining City in 2016, Sane has produced a sensational 39 goals and 45 assists for the Manchester-based club. The German has helped the current English champions win two Premier League titles, two English League Cups and one FA Cup during his time in Manchester.
It is therefore unsurprising that Sane will set you back £90 million and wages of £176,000 a week. He may not be cheap, but with stats like 96 rated sprint speed, 88 rated dribbling and 87 rated shot power, he’s worth every penny.
Kingsley Coman (OVR 84 – POT 88)
Position(s): LM, RM, LW
Club: Bayern Munich

Wage: £108,000 a week
Kingsley Coman has spent four seasons with Bayern (the first two on loan from Juventus), and in that time, has won four consecutive Bundesliga titles. Perhaps he’s ready for a new challenge?
The Frenchman’s 91 sprint speed, 87 dribbling and 87 ball control can all be yours for the price of his £62.3 million release clause and his £108,000 a week wage demands.
Marco Asensio (OVR 83 – POT 87)
Position(s): LW, RW
Club: Real Madrid
Value: £30.6 million (Release Clause: £65 million)
Wage: £162,000 a week
Marco Asensio first broke in to the Real Madrid team in 2016. His 18/19 season was his best so far, making 8 La Liga assists in 30 appearances. Nevertheless, Los Blancos ended the year trophyless; maybe you could tempt the Spaniard away with the promise of silverware?
Asensio has fantastic all round stats for a winger including, 86 shot power, 85 dribbling and 82 crossing and passing. The Madrid wide man is a talented playmaker and thus will cost you £54 million and £162,000 a week in wages.
Anthony Martial (OVR 83 – POT 88)
Position(s): LW, ST, LM
Club: Manchester United
Value: £31.1 million (Release Clause: £61.3 million)
Wage: £126,000 a week
Since joining Man United in 2015, Martial has contributed 50 goals and 30 assists in 177 appearances for the Premier League club. His reputable numbers mean he is now a regular starter and therefore his experience would serve your team well.
The United wide-man will cost you £54 million to sign, as well as his £126,000 a week wages. For this price, you’ll be signing a player with fantastic sprint speed (89), dribbling (87) and finishing (82) stats.
Mikel Oyarzabal (OVR 82 – POT 89)
Position(s): LW, LM, RW
Club: Real Sociedad
Value: £27.9 million (Release Clause: £64.2 million)
Wage: £35,000 a week
Mikel Oyarzabal is a product of the Real Sociedad youth system and has paid back their faith in him with 13 goals and 4 assist in the 2018/19 La Liga season. The Spaniard also helped his national team win the under 21 European Championship in 2019.
This young talent has three key stats that you need from a winger; 85 dribbling, 86 finishing and 82 crossing. Evidently, Oyarzabal will keep defenders guessing as he attacks down the left channel. His services will cost you £45 million and £35,000 a week in wages.
Leon Bailey (OVR 82 – POT 88)
Position(s): LW, RW
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Value: £27.5 million (Release Clause: £52.2 million)
Wage: £58,000 a week
Bailey joined Leverkusen in January 2017 and has since made a steady contribution of 19 goals and 12 assists in 89 appearances. But if you were to unlock his potential of 88, he could help take your team to the next level.
The Jamaican is dangerous with the ball at his feet, with 86 dribbling and 86 agility; not to mention he can fly past defenders with his 90 sprint speed. Although his release clause is £52.2 million, you can land the winger for just £40 million and his £58,000 a week wage after negotiations.
David Neres (OVR 81 – POT 86)
Position(s): LW, RW, CAM
Value: £21.6 million (Release Clause: £31.9 million)
Wage: £23,000 a week
David Neres had a sublime 2018/19 season; with Ajax he won an Eredivisie medal and the Dutch domestic cup, whilst on the national stage he was crowned as a Copa America winner. Not forgetting, the Brazilian helped Ajax reach the semi-final of the Champions League.
His 88 rated dribbling, coupled with his five star skills, make him a flair master, and so he will have no problem beating defenders. Neres’ £31.9 million release clause is an absolute bargain, along with his low wage demands of £23,000 a week; he has to be a consideration for any manager looking to bring in a winger.
Rony Lopes (OVR 80 – POT 85)
Position(s): LM, LW
Value: £18 million (Release Clause: £39.2 million)
Wage: £17,000 a week
Rony Lopes had a fantastic season for Monaco in 17/18, scoring 15 goals and making seven assists. However, his last season was not nearly as fruitful, with only two goals and two assists in the 18/19 season. He has moved to Sevilla this summer but could you poach him from the Spanish club and help him fulfill his full potential?
Lopes has quick feet with 84 rated dribbling and decent crossing and finishing stats of 77. With some training and experience he could become a complete left winger. You can either pay his £39.2 million release clause to sign him immediately, or wait until the January 2020 and offer Sevilla £33 million; Lopes’ wage demands will likely rise to £30,000 a week.
Milot Rashica (OVR 79 – POT 85)
Position(s): LW, CF, RW
Club: Werder Bremen
Value: £15.8 million (Release Clause: £29.9 million)
Wage: £29,000 a week
Milot Rashica joined Bundesliga team Werder Bremen back in January 2018. In his first full season (18/19), the Kosovan managed 12 goals and six assists; respectable numbers for any left winger.
Rashica is a tricky winger with 87 sprint speed, 90 agility and 84 dribbling; he is sure to cause problems for your opposition’s defence. His release clause will set you back £29.9 million, with wages of £29,000 a week.
Christian Pulisic (OVR 79 – POT 86)
Position(s): LW, RW
Country: United States
Value: £16.2 million (Release Clause: £34 million)
Wage: £76,000 a week
Pulisic had a decent final year with Dortmund, scoring seven goals and getting six assists across all competitions. After signing for Chelsea in January 2019 and being loaned back to his old club, Pulisic has now joined the London club in their latest Premier League campaign.
If you activate the American’s £34 million release clause and cover his £76,000 wage bill, you will sign a useful winger whose strongest stats consist of 87 sprint speed and 85 dribbling.
