Your FIFA Career Mode save can be dictated simply by picking up a top-class wonderkid.

Have a youngster who's potential can rival the likes of Ronaldo and Messi will pretty much guarantee your success in years to come and give you the incentive of maximising their ability.

We look at which youngsters will be the must-have signings in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Latest news - La Masia

Barcelona's youth academy has been producing great talent for years, and it looks like another crop of youngsters is on the way to the top.

Barca boast youngsters like Pedri, Francisco Trincao and Ansu Fati already, but there are two La Masia graduates that are making waves in the first team.

Oscar Mingueza and Ilaix Moriba have both been involved in first-team action this season and they certainly look the part.

With plenty of other talent in the squad too, Barca are looking ready to dominate once again.

What is a "wonderkid"?

We are classifying wonderkids as teenagers at the beginning of a save on FIFA 22.

Therefore, Erling Haaland, who will be 21 by the time FIFA 22 comes out and Joao Felix are ineligible for this list.

Pedri (OVR 79 - POT 91)

pedri-fifa-22-prediction
ON THE RISE - Pedri has become a regular starter for Barca

At the start of the 2020/21 season, you probably wouldn't have heard of Pedri, but he's now a regular starter for Barcelona aged just 18.

The youngster had just one season of professional football under his belt, for Las Palmas in the Segunda Division, before making the £6.5 million move to Barca.

Eduardo Camavinga (OVR 79 - POT 91)

camavinga-fifa-22-prediction
CULTURED - Aged just 18, Camavinga is in his third season of professional football

Aged just 18, Eduardo Camavinga already has a fantastic reputation, and it's now expected that the French international will be on the move this summer.

Real Madrid are the favourites to secure his signature, with Real Madrid and Manchester United also linked with the midfielder.

Ansu Fati (OVR 77 - POT 91)

ansu-fati-fifa-22-prediction
EARNING HIS STRIPES - Ansu Fati would have learned plenty playing with Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann

Ansu Fati burst onto the scene with eight goals in his first season in Barcelona colours, but his playing time has been a bit more limited under Ronald Koeman.

The Spanish international has been on the fringes this term, with Koeman often turning to a back five, limiting Fati's opportunities.

Ryan Gravenberch (OVR 79 - POT 90)

ryan-gravenberch-fifa-22-prediction
TRANSFER TARGET - Gravenberch is likely to be the next prodigy to leave Ajax

Mathijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Christian Eriksen - the Ajax production line is quite something, with Ryan Gravenberch likely to be the next academy graduate to shine in Europe.

Manchester United and Barcelona are said to be after his signature, but at this stage, it looks as if the youngster will complete at least one more season in Holland.

Bukayo Saka (OVR 79 - POT 89)

bukayo-saka-fifa-22-prediction
STAR MAN - Bukayo Saka has been Arsenal's most consistent performer aged just 19

It feels like Buakyo Saka has been around for ages now, with the young Gunner playing over 70 times for Arsenal.

The England international has played anywhere down the left flank as well as a right winger, which could see him make Gareth Southgate's squad for the Euros.

Mason Greenwood (OVR 77 - POT 89)

mason-greenwood-fifa-22-prediction
ON PAUSE - Mason Greenwood hasn't quite managed to build on his remarkable start to Premier League life

Mason Greenwood was a revelation last season for Manchester United, scoring 17 goals aged just 18.

But it seems to be too much too soon for the England international, who has struggled this term. Let's hope he bounces back in 2022.

Jude Bellingham (OVR 77 - POT 89)

jude-bellingham-fifa-22-prediction
DUCK TO WATER - Jude Bellingham has stepped up from the Championship to the Bundesliga with ease

We all thought it would be a couple of seasons before Jude Bellingham was given regular opportunites at Borussia Dortmund.

He had other ideas, with the England man picking up over 30 appearances in just his secon season of professional football.

Jamal Musiala (OVR 75 - POT 89)

jamal-musiala-fifa-22-prediction
DECISION TIME - Jamal Musiala has made the call to represent Germany over England or Nigeria

The one that got away - Jamal Musiala is likely going to be rued by England fans for the next decade or so.

The Bayern Munich youngster, despite playing 16 times for the Three Lions at youth level, has decided to represent Germany after breaking into the Bayern first team in 2021.

Gio Reyna (OVR 76 - POT 88)

gio-reyna-fifa-22-prediction
FLYING THE FLAG - Gio Reyna is just one of the young American stars shining in Europe

Staying in Germany, Gio Reyna is one of many promising Borussia Dortmund youngsters, and makes up the American contingent in Europe.

The attacking midfielder has registered over 50 appearances for BVB but needs to work on his output with just five goals and eight assists in that time.

Xavi Simons (OVR 66 - POT 86)

xavi-simons-fifa-22-prediction
THE NEW AGE - Xavi Simon has over 3 million followers on Instagram

It's rare to see an athlete pick up such a social following before they've even played a game professionally, but plenty of eyes will be watching the career of Xavi Simons.

The Dutch youngster moved from Barcelona to PSG a few years ago, and made his debut for the club under Mauricio Pochettino in 2021.
