How We’ve Rated Players

We’ve rated players from every team, with ratings ranging from 0-5, with 5 the highest, and 0 the lowest.

  • The ‘rating’ column shows what level they player is at now.
  • The ‘potential’ column gives you an idea of how much that player can grow by.
  • The ‘importance’ column gives you an idea of how important that player is for your squad.

For example, a player who’s importance rating is 4.5 is one you should probably never sell, while a player with an importance rating of 2 wouldn’t be missed that much if you were to offload him.

The list below contains every team’s starting transfer and wage budget. However, these will vary depending on which objectives you select for your season, so we’ve given the highest and lowest amount possible for each club.
