Football Manager 2023 Best Central Midfielders

Football Manager 2023 is almost here, with brand new features announced for this year's game.

With that in mind, we know gaffers will already want to start planning those shortlists ahead of this year's game, and we've got you covered for the best central midfielders you can sign in FM23.

If you're a top club looking for a new star, then don't look past these playmaking superstars.

Jude Bellingham

You don't need us to tell you just how good Jude Bellingham is, just have it known that he is our top pick for the best FM23 centre-mids.

A dominating presence with incredible composure on the ball, Bellingham is someone that every Football Manager player needs to get their hands on.

Eduardo Camavinga

From one rising star to another, Eduardo Camavinga is another top pick, but he may actually be harder to sign than Bellingham.

Camavinga is set for a long career with Real Madrid and his journey has only just started, meaning you'll have to splash big money in order to secure his signature.

Frenkie de Jong

The star of a transfer saga in the summer, de Jong ended up staying put in Barcelona, but you could come in and spoil Laporta's party all over again.

A superstar midfielder who truly has it all, we think you should be willing to pay the big bucks in order to get this man in the heart of your side.

Nicolo Barella

Barella is another star in his mid-twenties shining on the grandest stage.

With Inter faltering slightly in recent times, could you swoop in and take this Italian baller and turn him into a legend?


Probably the most impossible player to sign on Football Manager 2023 - without the help of the in-game editor - Pedri is a guaranteed Ballon d'Or winner sometime throughout your FM23 save.

Barcelona will unlikely never sell this man, so you'll just have to hope that their financial problems get even worse.

Sandro Tonali

Much like Barella, Tonali is a versatile midfielder who can play as a playmaker or as a midfield anchor.

A classy talent nonetheless, we can't wait to see how far you can take this star in Football Manager 2023.

Youri Tielemans

Tielemans has been a Football Manager star for some time now, but there may be no better time to get him into your side.

Available for nothing at the start of your first season, this Belgian star could take your team to the next level.
