Bernardo Silva – Path to Glory – 92 Rated
Right now it is hard to imagine a better card for your midfield than this one. He is so good going forward and his dribbling is unbelievable. He also plays in the Premier League, so you can link him with some other exceptional players, the only drawback is the price.
To get Bernardo Silva you’ll need to drop the best part of a million coins but he can still go up more.
Joao Cancelo – Out of Position – 90 Rated
We promise this list won’t just be Manchester City players, but they do have a lot of great midfielders and this Cancelo card is up there with the best. Cancelo normally plays his trade at fullback, yet his passing range is so good he good do a job in midfield, especially with how he underlaps.
This card plays homage to that making one of the most balanced midfielders in the game. Right now, you can pick up this card for just over 400,000 coins.
Frankie De Jong – World Cup Path to Glory – 90 Rated
Frankie De Jong is one of the best young midfielders in the world, he perfectly captures how you expect a Dutch player to play. He is confident on the ball, with a killer first touch and an eye for a pass, as the card shows. Like Bernardo Silva this card also has some room to go up if the Netherlands go far in the World Cup. He will cost just under 600,000 coins.
Other midfielders to consider
If these midfielders don’t crop out for your preference – we have a plethora of midfielders to try in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, these are:
- Bruno Fernandes (CM) – a solid attacking midfielder, he can provide mostly everything for you from a CAM viewpoint. Great shooting, decent pace and strong playmaking skills
- Bastian Schweinsteiger (CM, with position modifier) – This is one of the best value icons you can get early on. Both his 87 and 89 are around 125,000 coins and can play anywhere in your midfield.
- Dirk Kuyt (88 CAM/CM) – Kuyt is a legend of the game and he costs just over 200,000 which is a bargain for a player of this quality.
Type of midfielders – which one is best for you?
While these midfielders a great, you’ll have to figure out which ones are best for you. The best midfielders in FIFA 23 ultimately is your decision.
These midfielders excel at certain things but lack in different areas i.e Toni Kroos is a great central midfielder who can set up plays whilst Valverde is better box-to-box, due to his increased mobility.
It is important you have the right players for the formation you’re using. If you’re using only two midfielders, with a back five, then you need to make sure your midfielders can do it all. Where as if you have a midfield three, then a mixture of attacking and defensive players is best.
The key is to find your niche across your midfield that best compliments your play style – this will extend your team’s potential going forward!
