    Tasty budget there..

    I personally would go with someone with age on their side.

    Depending on what you want to do, you could possibly get Iheanacho. (im not actually sure how much he is worth in game).

    If not, Andrea Belotti is a good all round striker with HUGE potential.
    Moreso for a speed demon, Timo Werner or Angel Correa
    Or a personal favourite, because of his form in real life, Tammy Abraham.

    He is on loan at Bristol City IRL, but on the game, he is in Bristol's squad permanantly, and you can sing him straight away. He doesnt start as good overall as the rest, but he will be a god.

    For the CM/CAM Position I would recommend to you Abdülkadir Ömür from Trabzonspor if you want to develop him to a quality player. Starts with 66 but has the potential to be at 84. He is also just 17 years old at the begin of the CM. Costs around 1-2 million

    If you already want a developed player that will still develop: Fares Bahlouli from Standard Liege. Starts with 71, goes up to 79. Might be a good investment for now until you have another (youth) player overtaking him on his potential. Should be available for about 4-5 million.

    Substitutes:

    One of the strongest career mode teams ive ever had. Andre Silva is completely unreal and finishes everything. I play both fullbacks on 'always overlap' which gives me so many options going forward. Im unbeaten 34 games into the prem season and im currently in the semi finals of the champions cup. Hoping to become the invincibles 2.0 with this insane team
  • Your Team: Villareal (season 2019 - 2020)
    Position: ATT
    Why: I have the opportunity to switch Origi for either Icardi, Gabriel Barbosa or Aguero, but I am not sure that i want to make the deal. What do you suggest? Which player should I get?

    Many thanks

    Not sure what he's like in 2019 but I'm in 2017 and just signed Chidoze Awadiem for £2.5m from Porto, 20 years old, 73 overall, could be a good cover player for a top team, for my Bastia team he's a first team player

    Anyone looking for a cheap, young LB I recommend Cheick Keita, plays for Chiavari in Serie B, Italy

    If you're starting a career in 2016 his stats are
    Age: 19
    Overall: 67
    Valued at £2m, can get him for £1m-1.5m

    I'm in my second season with Bastia, signed him for £1.2m in my first summer and he's already gone up to 71 overall aged 20 without any training, just playing regularly, valued at £2.8m.

    In my opinion, this team seems a bit unrealistic, notably considering the subs. my experience IG shows that any sub over 82, regardless of team level, starts to complain about playtime in a regular basis (a real pain in the a...). In my current CM I have a 17 y.o. player who started to complain after 3 games into the season. as well, I would not play pogba as a cam and probably chose a "better" rb.
