FIFA 18 is out today if you managed to order the Icon edition with the legendary Ronaldo Nazario on the front, but for the rest of us, we have to wait until September 29.

In recent years, FIFA Ultimate Team and The Journey have become huge successes among EA Sports' cult following and both modes grow bigger and stronger every year.

But what about the Career mode? That's still a firm favourite amongst gamers and EA have taken great strides to improve it for the 2018 incarnation.

On this edition, gamers now have the power to actually sit down with rival managers and thrash out transfer deals and if they can agree a fee, then they also get a chance to have a chat with the player and their agent.

There are new interactive screens where players will unveil their shirt numbers at press conferences on the home screen and the whole transfer process now features release clauses for certain players.

But, as we all know, the difference with playing a Career on FIFA compared to the other modes in question is that the players can get better.

Therefore, you can purchase players with the view to them becoming much better, and thus, worth much more down the road if you're smart.

Below is the top 10 players in terms of potential on FIFA 18:


1. Kylian Mbappe (ST) - 94

2. Gianluigi Donnarumma (GK) - 94

3. Marco Asensio (CAM) - 92

4. Gabriel Jesus (ST) - 92

5. Thomas Lemar (LM) - 91

6. Leroy Sane (LW) - 91

7. Dele Alli (CAM) - 90

8. Ousmane Dembele (RM) - 90

9. Anthony Martial (LM) - 90

10. Youri Tielemans (CM) - 90

However, most of those players are going to be pretty expensive to begin with. What about the stars that fly under the radar that you can pick up for cheap?

FIFA always has it's fair share of hidden gems and these are they guys to kick-start your managerial career with if you're hardly flush for cash:

Fulham v Hull City - The Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round

1. Danny Amos (LB)

2. Steven Sessegnon (LB)

3. Luca Plogmann (GK)

4. Vesel Demaku (CM)

5. Frederik Rej-Rosenqvist (GK)

6. Benjamin Tannus (CAM)

7. Emilio Simonsen (CAM)

8. Elias Abouchabaka (CAM)

9. Rekeem Harper (CM)

10. Michael Cuisance (CM)

Top of the list is 17-year-old Danny Amos, left back for Doncaster Rovers. His current overall rating of 48, but in just a few short years he jumps to 74.

He'd be dirt cheap to get ahold of and he can be sold at a tidy profit indeed.

Other Englishman includes Steven Sessegnon of Fulham and West Brom's 17-year-old midfielder Rekeem Harper. Harper has a potential rating of 84 and is a smart early buy.

The majority of players on that list rise to the mid-80s - so get yourself a bargain!
