Gianluigi Donnarumma is a young player who starts out as an outstanding shot-stopper and has the potential to become a great player in some years.

With a potential rating of 92 which is greater than any other goalkeeper with their current abilities in the game and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is a wonder kid who comes in second place with a rating of 91 this year.

Porto’s Diogo Costa is a hidden gem of a goalkeeper with a potential rating of 86 if he is you develop him properly.

Also, Gavin Bazunu of Manchester City is a hidden gem who can be bought by the teams not in the top division because of his low current ability and age.

Matthijs de Ligt is a wonder kid who singed with New Juventus makes his current and potential ability understandable and justified, even for his real-life price tag.

It would be very difficult that the Old Lady in FIFA 20 puts him up for sale again in the Career mode. Nonetheless it is important to mention in any best young players guide for his sheer talent and what he becomes down the road.

Center-back pairing RB Leipzig with Ibrahima and Dayot Upamecano are more likely to change clubs. The versatile talent of Dan-Axel Zagadou makes Borussia Dortmund defender look like a compelling target.

Panagiotis Retsos of Bayer Leverkusen is a best young player who is also a very likely candidate for our list because he is able to play at all positions across the backline bur his cost is the same as Diogo Dalot of Manchester United but they both are likely to be out of budget for some club.

Costing £3 million Nuno Tavares of Benfica is a more affordable option.

Kai Havertz and Jadon Sancho are the best young midfield players in FIFA 20 belonging to Bundesliga and they are also the club’s top two young players. But keep in mind they cost a lot more than a coffee from Starbucks.

Thiago Almada is one of South America’s most entertaining and exciting young players who plays for Man City in real life. He can play up-front as well as on the wing at only 18 years of age with a value of £6m in the beginning of Career Mode.

Kylian Mbappe, as expected is still considered one of the best players and the potential ability to prove it. With an overall rating of 89 at the beginning of Career Mode and because of that not everyone will be able to afford him.

Joao Felix is the new guy at Atletico Madrid so he probably won’t be available to buy during the first transfer window but instead of him, you can maybe get Mason Greenwood of Manchester United in an affordable price as well who also has the potential to become a great striker in the game.

This is the end of our best young players guide. We hope this wonderkids guide will help you choose the player you want to get. If you want us to cover something else let us know. Have fun playing and give your opponent hell.
