Position(s): CAM, CM
Club: Manchester City
Value: £81 million (Release Clause: £149.9 million)
Wage: £333,000 a week
Kevin De Bruyne has long been considered one of the finest creative players in the world. Starting his career with Genk, he made an early move to Chelsea but failed to make much of an impact and spent a lot of his time in Germany on loan. After a brief spell with Wolfsburg he was snapped up by Man City in 2015 and hasn’t looked back since.

The Man City man is the quintessential string-puller at the heart of your attack. His incredible 92 short passing, 91 long passing, and 86 dribbling means he can do anything you want to creatively. He’s also deadly in front of goal with a mega 91 shot power, 90 long shots, and 82 finishing.
Paulo Dybala (OVR 88 – POT 92)
Position(s): CAM, RW
Club: Piemento Calcio
Value: £68.9 million (Release Clause: £118.8 million)
Wage: £194,000 a week
Paulo Dybala arrived in Europe with Palermo in 2012, but it wasn’t long before his talents put him on the radar of Juventus, who snapped him up in 2015 for around €40 million.
The Argentine playmaker brings a fearsome combination of 90 dribbling and 86 acceleration to break away from a defender and 87 short passing to pick out a teammate perfectly. His £118.8 million release clause is a lot, but at his age you will get plenty of peak years out of him.
Christian Eriksen (OVR 88 – POT 89)
Position(s): CAM, CM, RM
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Value: £61.2 million (Release Clause: £117.8 million)
Wage: £185,000 a week
A product of the famed Ajax Academy, Christian Eriksen moved to Spurs in 2013 and has developed into one of the best creative forces in world football. He scored 10 goals and registered 17 assists in all competitions last season.

The Danish maestro is absolutely deadly in the middle of the park. With 92 vision, 91 short passing, and 89 long passing there little he can’t do to keep the ball moving as you probe a defence. Eriksen only has one year left on his contract so you might not have to pay his massive £117.8 million release clause if you are patient.
Marco Reus (OVR 88 – POT 88)
Position(s): CAM, LM, ST
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Value: £50.4 million (Release Clause: £85.7 million)
Wage: £153,000 a week
Marco Reus first made his mark with Borussia Monchengladbach before moving to Dortmund in 2012 where he exploded onto the world stage. The club captain has seen his career hampered by injuries, but when on the field he has been lethal.
In FIFA 20 Reus still has some of the athleticism he is known for with 85 acceleration and 85 sprint speed. His 87 finishing and 86 short passing are his best assets on the ball, along with 87 dribbling which makes him ideal to break open a defence by himself.
David Silva (OVR 88 – POT 88)
Position(s): CAM, CM
Club: Manchester City
Value: £32.4 million (Release Clause: £59.9 million)
Wage: £239,000 a week
David Silva is an icon of the position. He pulled the strings at Valencia for years before moving to Man City in 2010, where he has been instrumental in their transformation to a Premier League titan.

Silva may be coming to the end of his career in FIFA 20, but with 92 short passing, 87 dribbling, and 84 crossing he can still be a creative force. Given his age and £59.9 million release clause he wouldn’t be a wise purchase if you plan on playing multiple seasons though.
