Please suggest a CDM for my team

Cheers mates.
Looking for CDM for my squad, running 352 with RTTF SMS and RTTF Marcos Alonso as CDMs. Both go forward too much even if I instruct them to stay back. I need someone who will work more in the defense rather that support the attack (M/H or M/M if that works). I already have SMS as big guy, so it can be someone more agile, just want him to do the dirty work and be more defensive.
I was thinking about doing Keane (how is he?), but open to other options - icons <1 million, Brasil, Spain or maybe even BPL.
Any suggestions?

    Kante is a beast in defence.

    Leiva looks good and will perfectly fit into my team, is his stamina an issue? I want my CDM to last 2 full games without being subbed before I apply squad fitness.

    IF Leiva is perfect if you want someone to stay back. I use Nainggolan as he just gets everywhere

    I have TOTGS Parolo and he's been better than Nainggolan to me. But I'm looking for someone who won't contribute to attack that much

    I had IF Leiva for over 100 games before I packed UCL nainggolan untradeable. Recently done Keane myself and he's brilliant mate. I'd definitely do the loan Keane and try him for yourself. It's cheap and you can then try both of them for yourself

    I just bought prime Makelele and he's incredible. Payed a bit Bit over a million, I got one on bid for 1,000,030.

    Staying till tots if not the whole year, he's been that good for me. L/h too so he's always in position. With anchor he's rapid, strong, aggressive, the whole lot.

    Keane for me, had him before the hype and he was amazing, so pleased he's in the SBC as well

    I had NIF for a while, he was ok but his passing is ****. And that was in October.

    Thanks for the option. Not sure what should I aim - buy Makelele or do Keane SBC. Statswise I like Keane better tbh

    Depends what stats you look for. I prefer Makelele.
    The nerfing of chem styles this year has made my choice of players even more limited.

    Makelele is alot faster and more agile, I'd have to use shadow on Keane and lose out on physical boosts. But Keane has mach better passing and shooting, scored a screamer against me the other day.

    I got Petit at Lcm to win headers in midfield. Makelele is basically Kante on steroids.

    Probably can't go wrong with either. Or both!

    I think I`ll go with loan Keane first to see if he can give what I need. Don`t really need both, I`d like one of my CDMs to be like SMS/Pogba who can support attack, shoot, win headers and do skill moves. Appreciate your input, mate!
