With FIFA 22 releasing only a few ago and everyone needing to find themselves a starter team, we thought it would be only right to make a list of some of the best cheap players at the start of FIFA 22!
Kicking off the list we have the 80 rated beast Renato Sanches! For only 8k on Xbox and 12k on PlayStation you can grab yourself a great all-rounder with some awesome stats: 84 PAC, 74 SHO, 77 PAS, 84 DRI, 72 DEF and 84 PHY. With a shadow on this man can do anything, from covering every corner of the pitch to picking up your kids from school for you. This card is possibly one of the best all round budget cards and is definitely one of the best starter players to pick up to go into your team!
Next on the list we have the 80 Borussia Dortmund Striker Malen. For the price of 800 coins on both Xbox and PS, you can make your opponent wish they had never bought the game in the first place! They’ll be asking themselves why someone who is the same price as a packet of Cheetos has suddenly turned into R9 and has run around your entire team four times just to chip the keeper from 50 yards. If that very specific description (definitely not from first-hand experience) didn’t sell him to you, then how does a lovely 90 pace, matched with 97 finishing, 94 agility and 98 dribbling when you chuck a finisher on him sound? I’d say it sounds pretty good.
Third on the list we have everyone’s favourite super sub from FIFA 21, Adama Traore! 2k for the successful footballer version of Usain Bolt isn’t too bad now. If you enjoy a sprint down the wing like it’s the 100m every time you pick up the ball, then Traore is the perfect player for you! Now the stats on this card aren’t all that enticing, as he can only just about stand on his left foot with his 2* weak foot, the shooting will need a finisher chem style to get him to 81 finishing, and the passing…well it’s not great. But let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter as all you’re going to do is run the ball into the back of the net from your own box every time you use him!
