After his big transfer to Atletico, the 20-year-old has been very much in the spotlight and could be one of the best forwards in years to come.

Rodrygo-future-stars

After a £40m transfer to Real Madrid in 2019, Rodrygo has broken into the Madrid first-team brilliantly on the right-hand side.

PRE ORDER FIFA 21

Sandro Tonali (OVR 75 – FS 91)

tonali-future-stars

With transfer rumours floating around from big clubs, Tonali’s massive potential is clear to see and so he is deserving of his 91 FS rating.

His nationality and hairstyle have often had him likened to Andrea Pirlo – not a bad footballer to be associated with…

Mason Greenwood (OVR 67 – FS 90)

greenwood-future-stars

The Man United starlet is a majorly popular inclusion, thanks to his 5-star weak foot and potential skill move upgrade – this is set to be a great FUT card!

Nicolas Dominguez (OVR 75 – FS 89)

dominguez-future-stars

Nicolas Dominguez was on loan to Argentinian side Velez Sarsfield for the first half of the season – with five goals and an assist in 13 appearances, it’s not hard to understand why he’s rated so highly at 21 years old.

Team 2 Predictions

The following players are who we expect to be released today.

Lautaro Martinez – 93 OVR

martinez-future-stars-predictions

The Argentine has become more established this season and so is still easily eligible for a Future Stars item – after missing out on an anticipated Headliners card, maybe he’s been saved for the Future Stars promo.

Erling Braut Haaland

haland fifa 20

Haaland’s incredible eight goals in his first four appearances at his new club, made him the first player to do so at any Bundesliga club. He would surely come in with one of the highest ratings?

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 91 OVR

One of Chelsea’s many young starlets coming through their academy, the 19-year-old winger looks set to become one of England’s main future talents.

Theo Hernandez – 90 OVR

hernandez-future-stars-predictions

Another player that was tipped for a Headliners card – being only 22, Theo Hernandez is still eligible for a Future Stars item and should feature.

Alex Meret – 90 OVR

meret-future-stars-predictions

While he may be older than the already established Donnarumma, Alex Meret is still tipped to be one of the best future keepers, with many likening him to the next Buffon.

Federico Valverde – 89 OVR

valverde-future-stars-predictions

Having broken into the Madrid first team, the 21-year-old has been showing glimpses of his potential and looks set to receive a card in the high 80s.

Plus, that loading screen is a massive clue that he’s on the way.

renan-lodi-future-stars-predictions

Another left back, the 21-year-old Brazilian has been a solid performer for Atletico this season – he should be due to a very nice upgrade if he’s included in the Future Stars squad.

Daniel James Academy Card Explained

Essentially, Academy cards are a new variation of the traditional Objectives cards.

If you complete certain Objectives you will earn the initial Academy card.

However, once you’ve redeemed the first Academy card, you will be issued with a new set of Objectives to complete, in order to upgrade your Academy card to the next level.
