Donnarumma is the most promising goalkeeper in FIFA . He can reach a potential of 92, and his contract ends soon! Luís Maximiano is also another worth hiring, but watch out for Christian Früchtl. He is still young, so he may develop better than his potential indicates.

Matthijs de Ligt is Juventus' biggest promise and, in FIFA 21, he appears as the most promising defender. If you have room for another, Dayot Upamecano is another great option for your team. In any case, getting any of them will ensure a solid defense in your club.

Of course, Denis Zakaria and Boubacar Kamara end their contract in 2022. Take advantage of the Career mode!

Alexander-Arnold is the absolute king in young promises of this position. He continues to evolve and is a very complete player. We recommend it! However, both Emerson and Gonzalo Montiel are good proposals, since their contract ends in 2021.

In this case, there are three players that we advise you to follow closely: Reguilón, Cucurella, and Alphonso Davies. All three can reach up to 89 on average and are the most promising in the left-back position. If you are looking to hire someone soon, Luca Netz ends his contract in 2021.

Sandro Tonali still has a long way to go to reach 91, but he can become a crack! His contract is ending soon, so don't think twice. Behind him are many lesser-known players, but don't hesitate to give them a try if the opportunity arises.

Midfielders are the young promises with the greatest potential, in general. It is also true that here we cover different midfield positions. Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz are the best options, although don't disregard Riqui Puig or Agustín Urzi for being low on the list. 88 potential is not bad at all!

If you need a good winger, take a good look at Vinícius. Although he is still a long way from being a solid player on offense, he shows a lot of promise. Ansu Fati, Dembélé, and Adeyemi are three other wingers that we recommend, especially Adeyemi since he is not expensive. For now!

Can you imagine an offensive line made up of Mbappé, João Félix, and Haaland? It would be explosive! There is no doubt that they are the best young promises you can have on your team. Mbappé's contract ends in 2022, but there is a very big problem: he is too expensive!

For cheaper options, feel free to take a look at Adam Hlozek and Sebastiano Esposito. Both end contract in 2022 and cost less than 10 million.
