16. Mario Balotelli/Neymar

The last two players on this list may be hard to get. They are young players in FIFA 13. However, they are already established footballers in their respective teams.

Neymar, 20, is already ranked at 85 which should tell you all you need to know about him. However, unlike any other players on this list, he will come with a heavy price tag.
