The best midfielders can do it all, but who are the best young central midfielders on FIFA 21 Career Mode?
See the best under-23 CMs available below.
Frenkie de Jong (OVR 85 – POT 90)
Can Frenkie de Jong help take Barcelona back to the top?
One of the best on the game. The Dutch star is the ideal box to box midfielder with great pace, stamina and passing attributes.
Arthur (OVR 84 – POT 88)
We thought Arthur would partner de Jong at Barcelona for years to come, but the Brazilian has made the switch to Juventus instead!
Technically excellent, Arthur boasts 89 Ball Control, 88 Short Passing and 87 Dribbling to help you retain possession of the ball.
Federico Valverde (OVR 83 – POT 89)
Federico Valverde will be a Real Madrid superstar in years to come!
Another classic box to box CM. Valverde is quick with 89 Sprint Speed and has an eye for goal too with 81 Long Shots.
Youri Tielemans (OVR 83 – POT 86)
Leicester’s midfield dynamo Youri Tielemans has been a Career Mode wonderkid in years gone by.
With a potential of 86 OVR, the Belgian midfielder is still a top-class prospect with some dangerous attacking attributes.
Houssem Aouar (OVR 82 – POT 88)
A target for Arsenal in the summer, Houssem Aouar looks to be staying put at Lyon for now.
The French midfielder is a classy attacking threat from midfield with 87 Dribbling and 86 Ball Control making him difficult to dispossess.
Donny van de Beek (OVR 82 – POT 87)
Game time has been limited for Donny van de Beek in Manchester with the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the squad.
The Dutch star is a supreme talent, with 90 Stamina his standout attribute. Well-rounded stats make van de Beek versatile too.
Ruben Neves (OVR 82 – POT 87)
It is easy to forget how young Ruben Neves is! Still just 23, Neves has made well over 200 senior appearances in his career.
One of the slower players on the list, Neves controls the game with his excellent range of passing and devastating 84 Long Shots.
