An old-school winger, Martinez brings athleticism and final-ball delivery to your side. His 16 acceleration, 16 agility, and 15 pace will carry him beyond a fullback.

Meanwhile, his 17 dribbling, 16 technique, and 15 crossing means he can torment a defender that presses him and punish ones that stand off.

Athleticism is Martinez' underlying talent. His 16 acceleration, 16 agility, and 15 pace will get him in behind defenders and causing chaos across the back line. With 15 finishing and 14 first touch he can be deadly in front of goal too.

Michael Bradley, Toronto FC (CA 141 - PA 149)

Position: DM, M (C)

Value: £2.7 million

Wage: £96k

After a stint in Europe with a handful of clubs, Michael Bradley came back to the States in 2014 and has made 200 appearances for Toronto FC while also wearing the armband for his country.

The USMNT midfielder can cover a lot of positions in the spine of a team, but he's best deployed as a defensive player in centre midfield.

His 18 bravery, 17 aggression, 17 teamwork, and 17 work rate means he will get stuck in and run all day, while his 16 tackling and 16 marking will have him winning the ball back regularly.

Jonathan dos Santos, LA Galaxy (CA 140 - PA 148)

expand image

Age: 28

Nationality: Mexico

Position: DM, M (C), M (R)

Value: £3.9 million

Wage: £29.5k

The Galaxy midfielder is primarily a distribution midfielder, with 17 stamina, 16 work rate, 16 passing, and 16 first touch he can be the engine room of your team.

He can also play a more defensive, combative role too, with his 14 bravery, 14 aggression, and 10 tackling, but he's best off in the middle playing the ball around and making your team tick.
