FIFA 21 Wonderkids: Best Young Spanish Players to Sign in Career Mode

Check out which of Spain's wonderkids have the highest potential ratings in FIFA 21's Career Mode.


The Spanish national team has, for a long time, been one of the giants of the international game. However, since winning the European Championships back in 2012, La Furia Roja has found itself in a bit of a rut.

They were dispatched in the group stages of the World Cup in 2014, when the golden generation came to a conclusion, and have endured last-16 exits in their last couple of tournaments.


This has come from a nation which has blessed football with the likes of Xavi, Andreas Iniesta, and the goalkeeping brilliance of Iker Casillas. Now, we take a look at the next set of Spanish wonderkids to sign for your FIFA 21 Career Mode team.

At the foot of the article, you’ll find all of the best Spanish wonderkids in FIFA 21, with those with the highest potential ratings featuring in the body.

Choosing FIFA 21 Career Mode’s best Spanish wonderkids

The main point of emphasis that decides the value of a wonderkid is their potential rating. For our Spanish wonderkids piece, we decided to focus on players who are 21-years-old or younger and have a potential overall rating of 80 or above.

The Spanish wonderkids which feature in the body of the article have the highest potential ratings in FIFA 21, while the rest who also fit the criteria are in the table at the foot of the page.


Ansu Fati (OVR 76 – POT 90)

Team: FC Barcelona
Position: LW, RW
Age: 17
Overall Rating: 76 OVR / 90 POT
Value (Release Clause): £15.5M (£41.5M)
Wage: £21.5K a week
Best Attributes: 89 Acceleration, 89 Agility, 87 Sprint Speed

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the pinnacle of the youth movement, in terms of producing talent, is Barcelona, with Ansu Fati being one of their most recent top prospects.

The 17-year-old has already made an impressive impact in the first-team and has been capped for the national team.

For Barça this season, the Spanish wonderkid scored five goals and set-up four more through his first ten games of the season; he is very much becoming a favourite of Ronald Koeman.

Fati starts with impressive ratings in FIFA 21, primarily in terms of pace, boasting 89 acceleration and 87 sprint speed. He also possesses good tangibles while in possession, as shown by his 89 agility, 82 balance, 79 dribbling, and 77 ball control.

Ferrán Torres (OVR 81 – POT 89)

Team: Manchester City
Best Position: RM
Age: 20
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 89 POT
Value (Release Clause): £51M (£104.5M)

Wage: £87K a week
Best Attributes: 88 Acceleration, 86 Vision, 82 Composure

Pep Guardiola has had great success with Spanish players in his time with Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City. The next Spaniard who he hopes will develop into one of the stars of world football is Ferrán Torres.

Torres joined City at the start of this season, following a successful spell with Valencia. Last season, the winger tallied four goals and five assists. At 20-years-old, he has plenty of time to ease his way into the strict systems of the manager.

The Spanish wonderkid is capable of playing out wide or behind the striker, in a David Silva-type role. His overall rating from the start of FIFA 21 is a solid 81, which is built-up by his 88 acceleration, 86 vision, and 82 composure – meaning that he can pick out a pass or make an intelligent run.

Marc Cucurella (OVR 81 – POT 89)

Team: Getafe CF
Best Position: LM, LB

Age: 21
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 89 POT
Value (Release Clause): £52M (£119.6M)

Wage: £25K a week
Best Attributes: 88 Stamina, 84 Balance, 82 Reactions

Not all of Barcelona’s youth talents make their way to the Camp Nou first-team, and many find themselves carving out a career elsewhere. One such player, who opted to switch to Getafe, is Marc Cucurella.

This is Cucurella’s second stint with Getafe after being on-loan last season, and he made a positive start to this campaign. He fired-in his first goal of the season against the then-high-flying Real Betis and played an influential role in beating his former club, Barcelona.

In FIFA 21, the 21-year-old has excellent ratings of 88 stamina, 84 balance, and 82 reactions. Cucurella can play either in midfield or as a full back, and he has enough pace to keep up with some of the quicker players in the game.

Riqui Puig (OVR 75 – POT 88)

Team: FC Barcelona
Best Position: CM
Age: 20
Overall/Potential: 75 OVR / 88 POT
Value (Release Clause): £12M (N/A)

Wage: £69K a week
Best Attributes: 85 Balance, 83 Ball Control, 82 Vision

Riqui Puig played a larger role for Barcelona under the previous manager, Quique Setien, but with the arrival of Ronald Koeman, it seems as though the Matadepera-native’s future has become cloudy.

This season, at the time of writing, he’s featured for a total of three minutes in La Liga, which came in Barcelona’s 1-0 defeat to Getafe.

Puig is very much a ball-playing midfielder in FIFA 21, and his stats back-up this claim. His strongest attribute ratings suit the role, with 85 balance, 83 ball control, and 82 vision him to pull the strings in your midfield for years to come.

It may be possible to sign this Spanish wonderkid to your team for free, due to his contract expririg at the end of the first season of Career Mode.

Pedri (OVR 72 – POT 88)

Team: FC Barcelona
Best Position: LM, CAM
Age: 17
Overall/Potential: 72 OVR / 88 POT
Value (Release Clause): £5.5M (£14.7M)

Wage: £9.1K a week
Best Attributes: 88 Agility, 88 Balance, 86 Acceleration

A native of Tegueste, Pedri made his name with Las Palmas in La Liga 2, where he made 36 league appearances as a 16-year old.

It was Barcelona who swooped in for the wonderkid, with a number of other clubs also interested. This season, the young Spaniard was involved early and often, being given plenty of minutes for the Catalan giants.

Pedri has great ratings in key areas of FIFA 21 gameplay, including his 88 agility, 88 balance, and 86 acceleration. The left midfielder also has good vision and dribbling attribute ratings, which will only improve as he develops.

It might be hard to justify paying Pedri’s release clause, given his starting overall of 72. However, the longer you wait, the higher this Spanish wonderkid’s price will become, with him destined to be a superstar in Career Mode.
