Are you trying to find the FC 24 best CDM? Holding midfielders are very fashionable right now, despite them having spent years going under the radar.

It is no surprise to see Rodri and Casemiro at the top of this list. Spaniard Rodri was instrumental in Pep Guardiola’s men winning the treble last season. Brazilian Casemiro has been there and done it with Real Madrid, but alas there are question marks as to whether he needs help in the midfield for Erik ten Hag’s men.

Elsewhere in the list there are some major upgrades. Ismael Bennacer, Sandro Tonali, and Declan Rice are among the best defensive midfielders in the game. All three players have age on their side too. We are expecting Tonali and Bennacer in particular to feature heavily across all FC 24 game modes.

If these players are out of your budget, then why not uncover a gem? Take a look at the FC 24 best young CDMs for the game’s up and coming stars. Even cheaper but potentially riskier, have a look at the FC 24 wonderkid CDMs for the top teenage talent in this year’s game.
