FIFA 16 Swansea: Complete Guide For Career Mode

FIFA 16 Swansea – For those gamers that don’t like playing online, manager mode is their FIFA haven. A place where you can take apart any team you want, and completely construct a new one, however you please. Sometimes it helps to have a helping hand in explaining how to best use different teams on Career Mode. So, RealSport have devised a team-by-team guide for anyone looking to start a manager mode on FIFA 16. For a full list of the guides to the other 19 Premier League teams, click here.

General Tips

  • Always choose the lenient option when selecting your ‘financial strictness’. This way you get 85% of the money that the board receives from outgoing transfers to spend on new players
  • Use the new ‘Training’ feature – even if you can’t be bothered to always carry out the drills, simulate 5 drills every week, it’s a useful way to help your players grow outside of matches


  • Transfer budget – £18m
  • Wage budget – £100k

What the team needs

  • Striker
  • Right back
  • Back-up winger

Who you should get rid of

A general rule here is to sell off players that are old (31+), as on FIFA, their ratings can deteriorate pretty fast, so it’s best to cash in on them while their still valuable. Below are the names of the Swansea players you should get rid of and the lowest value at which you should sell that player:

  • Michu (remember him?!) – £3.5m

Total Received = £3.5m New Budget = £21.5m  

Who you should buy (with the smaller budget)

If you can, aim to sign younger players, as FIFA has this thing for making a majority of all decent young players develop pretty well, even if they don’t in real life. If you can’t sell the ‘deadweight’ players, the following are those you can sign within your original budget (£18m): Name: Divock Origi (76) Cost: £9m 

Is he worth it? 

  • Origi is a smart buy here, as Liverpool don’t have room in their first team for him right now, so are usually always willing to sell
  • With the potential to grow to around 86, signing Origi adds another dimension to Swansea’s somewhat target-man orientated attack of Gomis & Eder

Alternative option – Breel Donald Embolo (76) – £9.5m (Basel)  

Name: Sebastian Jung (77) Cost: £7m from Wolfsburg

Is he worth it? 

  • With Angel Rangel being 36, Swansea need a right-back for the future, assuming you don’t envision Kyle McNaughton being your RB of the future
  • Jung is already better than any of Swansea’s other right-back options and will grow nicely to around 81, meaning you can also sell him for a profit later on, should you want a better alternative

Alternative option Joel Ward (76) – £6m (Crystal Palace)  

Name: Munir (73) Cost: Loan from Barcelona

Is he worth it? 

  • With Dyer out on-loan, Swansea need another backup winger to Ayew/Montero, and Munir can be signed for two-years for no transfer fee at all
  • Signing Munir also means you can spend all your £18m on two quality signings to fill the other holes

Alternative optionJordon Ibe (71) – Loan (Liverpool)  

Who you should buy (with the larger budget)

If you do manage to sell the ‘deadweight’ players listed above, these are the extra players you should think about signing.

Each player’s rating is shown in brackets:

Name: Eder Alvarez Balanta (74) Cost: £3.3m from River Plate

Is he worth it?

  • Swansea’s squad is rather thin, so there aren’t too many players you can sell off beyond Michu
  • If you do manage to sell of Michu, Balanta is a savvy signing. You can sign him and ease him into your first-team, rather than rely on him from day one, as Williams (81) and Fernandez (78) are better than him now

Name: Goncalo Guedes (72) Cost: £3m

Is he worth it?

  • Like Balanta, Guedes is a player you sign with little pressure, hoping he grows into a beast later on
  • If you manage to secure European football with Swansea, you’ll need a big squad, and that’s exactly where Guedes can be most effective until he becomes good enough to be your first-choice winger
