At long last, FIFA 16 and PES 2016 are upon us - the reviews are in and now it's time to get settled in our new homes for the year ahead. I've dabbled with both titles this time around and I stand by my decision to follow PES 2016; a game that has surpassed its competition in almost every way. But we're not here for that age-old debate, we're here to improve our Career Modes and Master Leagues with some exceptional wonderkids!
It's always interesting to compare the rating systems for the same individuals with these games. Each one has its preferences and strengths. Therefore, we thought we'd take a look at both PES 2016 and FIFA 16 beside one another to provide you with a more complete picture!
FIFA 16 - Wonderkids For Career Mode!
Let's begin with the more popular franchise! Be sure to keep an eye on these individuals and be sure to nurture their talents to further your accomplishments.
Featured Player - Raheem Sterling
In 2015, he moved from Liverpool FC to Manchester City for 49 million pounds. He already has a rating of 82, a potential rating of 88, and was one of the most skilled players you could have in FIFA 15. Raheem Sterling is an exceptional midfield player, one who has carried his reputation for skill over to FIFA 16!
Youri Tielemans - With a potential rating of 90, Youri Tielemans is an exceptional midfield player for Anderlecht, one who will guarantee your team the same level of success!
- Memphis Depay - Starting off at level 81, Depay can rise to be one of the great stars of FIFA 16. He's an excellent winger with tremendous abilities when it comes to speed.
Goncalo Guedes - Starting off at level 70, Guedes may not seem like much. But with the ability to rise to level 88, this is one fantastic midfielder to keep an eye on!
Breel Donald Embolo - A relative unknown in the football world, Embolo is a striker of real prowess! With level 88 potential, this is one player you shouldn't forget so easily.
Niklas Sule - If you're looking for someone to demonstrate real skill in the last line of defense, Sule is your man. With tremendous skills of interception, this German player can rise to level 88 no problem!
PES 2016 - Wonderkids For Master League!
Now on to the game that has almost unanimously received the superior score in 2015. PES 2016 demonstrates how far this franchise has come, and though it may never top FIFA 16 in terms of sales, this underdog shows that money isn't everything!
Featured Player - Hakan Calhanoglu
Hakan Calhanoglu became a YouTube sensation recently following a series of remarkable free kicks - one of which he scored almost from the half way line! This guy is a lethal weapon on the pitch and you'd be mad not to consider him for Master League! With his talent on the ball and his ability to swap from defence to attack in seconds, Hakan Calhanoglu is a must!
Mateo Kovacic - “A mixture of Kaka and Clarence Seedorf.” This is one way that this marvellous player has been described by analysts and Kovacic has been rewarded with a 78 starting score in PES 2016!
Marquinho - Whether it be filling in for David Luiz or Thiago Silva, Marquinho has proved himself to be more than capable! Starting off with a level 80 score, this guy can only get better!
Aymeric Laporte - Only the second Frenchman to play for the notoriously picky Athletic Bilbao, this man is an incredible defender! He too starts with a level 80 and you'd be mad not to consider him.
Domenico Berardi - Simply put, Berardi is a goalscorer. He is beautiful to watch behind the ball and this has been reflected with a remarkable score of 81 in PES 2016!
Arkadiusz Milik - Milik is a strong and aerially capable player. I'd recommend considering him for your Master League as soon as possible as he assuredly won't disappoint!
So there we have it! A collection of wonderkids worthy of your attention. Also, know that those listed are also interchangeable between PES 2016 and FIFA 16 as both franchises have given high ratings to these players. Let us know what you think in the comments and which game you've picked up this year. Best of luck in either Career Mode or your Master League!
