If you’re a team on a tight budget in FIFA 16 career mode, getting talent doesn’t have to be costly – just get one of these super cheap high potential players. If you liked my series on the best cheap high potential players in FIFA 16 but felt they were too expensive, these are the articles for you – every player will cost you £1m or less!
If you’re not sure what these articles are all about, click the bold link below. Otherwise, let’s get straight in to the article.

These articles aim to highlight young, high potential players that are priced at £1m or less. If a player is not available to buy straight away, their maximum price (in the ‘Cost’ column; see below) is £500,000. Most articles will showcase players with a minimum potential of 76 (although in some cases having a minimum potential of 77 brought back more than enough players).
This year I made a couple of exceptions to the price rules. I have included players whose clubs want £1.1m for them (as opposed to a maximum price of £1m) because you can negotiate this down to under £1m, and in some cases excluding these players meant to articles were lacking players you could actually buy straight away! For the same reason I have bumped the £500,000 rule up to just under £600,000 (e.g. £525,000, £575,000, etc).
The ‘Avai?’ column is short for ‘available?’ and refers both to whether or not you can buy the specified player at the start of the first season and how long their current contract is. Let’s take Y/2 as an example – Y means that yes, you can buy him at the start of a new career, and the number means he has two years left on his contract. Similarly, N/3 would mean that no, you can’t buy the player straight away, and he has three years left on his contract. These ‘no’ players are often available for transfer if you wait until the January transfer window, however. For some players this column is blank – this means that they are out on loan at the start and are therefore unavailable for purchase until the second season.
The figure in the player cost column refers to the price you are given if you scout the player. There’s also another column – ‘Enquiry’. This refers to the price the other team want for the player if you enquire about him. Often there is a large difference between the player cost obtained through scouting and that obtained through an enquiry. This leaves a lot of room for negotiation, so don’t be put off if a price in the ‘Enquiry’ column is high, as you can usually get the player for much less. Try bidding lower than what you think will be accepted – you may be surprised at their response. If the ‘Enquiry’ column is blank it’s because the team refused to give a price, either because the player has just joined them or because they are loaning him in.
And as a final note, in FIFA 16 EA update player OVRs and potentials every week. Mose of the time these are very minor changes, and most order xanax from uk players won’t be affected at all unless they have had a very noteworthy week. Furthermore, some players occasionally disappear if they have been put in the reserve squad that week. So just bear in mind that these figures should be read as a guide only and not a definitive account of player costs, potentials, etc, for the entire season.
Here’s who I picked out as the best cheap, bargain goalkeepers under £1m.
Anthony Maisonnial: potential 81
It’s rare to find a player with more than 80 potential for less than £1m, but you can get that with Anthony Maisonnial. He’s only 17 but already his diving and reflexes are in the 70s, so it won’t be long before he becomes insanely hard to beat thanks to his lightning-fast reactions. Combined with his 6’2″, that diving is going to enable him to reach the far corners of the net where other keepers may concede a goal.
You can’t get him straight away, but your scout puts a value of £525,000 on him, so he should be very affordable when he does become available. With wages of just £2,000, he won’t cost you much per week either.
Christian Walton: potential 79
If you aren’t absolutely strapped for cash and need a player right now, Christian Walton is your man. Although, like Maisonnial, his main strengths lie in his diving and reflexes, Walton is actually very well balanced and is good at all aspects of goalkeeping. That makes him a safe pair of hands whether you need him to hold on to a fierce drive or get down quickly to stop a low shot. He’s also got the joint highest OVR of any player in this article, so you know you’re getting quality straight away when you buy him.
Brighton want £1.1m for him but you should be able to negotiate that down to around £800,000. His wages are £3,000.
Jind?ich Stan?k: potential 77
If your budget won’t stretch to the likes of Christian Walton, go for Jind?ich Stan?k. He’s far more affordable, but that doesn’t mean he’s lacking in quality. His handling stat is the best of all of my recommendations, so he’s far less likely to spill the ball in the area and concede sloppy goals. While his diving isn’t quite as good as his other goalkeeper stats, that can easily be trained to make him a fantastic all-rounder.
His asking price from Everton is already low at £600,000, you get knock that down even further to around £450,000; his wages are £3,000. He’s the best option if you need a cheap, high potential goalkeeper but don’t want to sacrifice potential or ability.
