If you’re eager to build a young squad full of potential, these are the names to look out for
Kylian Mbappe is the brightest young star in football right now and EA Sports seem to agree based on their FIFA 21 ratings.
Ahead of the release of their newest game, EA has revealed the ratings for the best Under-21 players in the world right now with Mbappe crowned king courtesy of an overall rating of 90.
Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho round out the podium with overall ratings of 87. Both already play for England at international level and have turned plenty of heads at club level with Sancho desperately wanted at Manchester United.
Dortmund, Chelsea and Real Madrid are the best represented clubs when it comes to talented U-21 players with each team boasting three players in EA’s list.
Interestingly, no Barcelona names have made the cut with 17-year-old Ansu Fati not included despite his breakout season at Camp Nou.
