Goal looks at all the wonderkid midfielders in Career Mode, listing their potential ability and price in the game

Jadon Sancho's breakout season in the Bundesliga saw him listed at the top of Goal's NxGn list of the world's best teenagers in 2019 and also sees him used in a lot of promotional material for FIFA 20. The England international is one of the top young players in FIFA 20 and has a pricetag to match in Career Mode as his potential ability sees him become of the game's elite.

Fellow Bundesliga star Kai Havertz can reach 92 overall like Sancho, but both are valued around £40 million at the start of Career Mode and may not fit every club's budget. Velez Sarsfield's Thiago Almada can also reach the same overall score but has a rating of 72 to begin with and thus is much more affordable in the transfer market

There are many bargains who start off with low current ratings in the game but have great potential ratings which can be reached with enough game time and the right development. Sparta Prague's Adam Hlozek is just 17 but is sure to be a Career Mode favourite as he can play on either side of the pitch or even up front and is valued at just £3.1m at the start of the game.
