Erling Haaland – 91 Overall 

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see Erling Haaland top the list of best young players in FC 24! The Norwegian is coming off the back of a record-breaking goalscoring season where he helped Manchester City to the treble. Not only is he the best young player around, but the striker shares the highest rating alongside Kevin De Bruyne and Kylian Mbappe. He also has the highest potential rating of 94 POT, with Mbappe and Vinicius Jr!

Vinicius Jr – 89 Overall 

Vinicius Jr has become one of Real Madrid’s crucial players and is someone who can individually turn a match around. He is one of the fastest players and best dribblers in FC 24. This makes him a much sought-after player not just in Career Mode, but in Ultimate Team too! That mix of top pace, agility, ball control, and dribbling, coupled with five-star skill moves, makes him one of the most meta wingers around.

Jude Bellingham – 88 Overall 

Real Madrid is certainly planning for the future, with Jude Bellingham the latest edition to their young midfield options. The Englishman is a true box-to-box player and will be looking to expand his trophy cabinet by linking up with other Galacticos in the Spanish capital. If you’re after great pace, physicality, defensive solidity, long or short passing, ability on the ball, or sharp finishing, this gem has it all!

Pedri – 86 Overall 

Despite still being in financial trouble, a disappointing season following the title win, and Xavi announcing he will leave at the end of this campaign, the future at FC Barcelona still looks bright. Pedri is one of several Spanish youngsters at the club, and he looks set to control the midfield for years to come.

Bukayo Saka – 86 Overall 

A fan favourite for Arsenal and England, Bukayo Saka looks to be getting better and better. His consistency for club and country has been outstanding. This has led to a highly improved overall rating and potential in EA Sports FC 24.
