As Christmas draws ever nearer, we’re all beginning to lower our own spending and budget for what is likely to be an expensive few weeks. But there is no need to limit such frugality to real life, with FIFA 15’s career mode also ideal for doing business on the cheap.
There are some real bargains to be had with a little scouring around, but we here at FFC Towers have done some of the hard work for you and found FIVE cost-effective options for your team.

Nicknamed the Asian Gareth Bale, Adnan certainly has the billing to be a great FIFA 15 buy. The Iraq international (rated at 73) combines great defensive abilities with ferocious shooting and free-kick ratings, making him a fearsome package from the left-back role. Plying his trade in Turkey with Caykur Rizespor, he can be picked up on the cheap, too.
Whilst fancy playmakers and silky wingers will dominate the ‘must buy midfielders’ category, Malanda is a decent cost effective destroyer. Rated at 73 when you kick-off, he possesses good physical stats (91 for strength the highlight) making him a great shield for your backline. He’s not bad going forward either, with sound aggression and pace ratings.
Another Eredivisie wonderkid to roll from the Dutch conveyor belt is Zivkovic. The attacker may lack strength and aggression from the fore, but with decent pace (80ish) and the potential to reach an overall rating of 86 he’s one to bag. Ajax won’t let him go easily, but wait a while and he’ll be available for a good price.
Bakkali is by no means a FIFA secret, but this time around he’s a real bargain. The flying Belgian’s contract situation means that PSV Eindhoven will not demand the earth for their man, who can easily develop into one of the very best career mode wingers with a little patience.
Away from Arsenal’s host of first-team stars, Zelalem is a real gem. The pacey attacker boasts good skill ratings and plenty of speed, making him a great counter-attacking option. A loan to the Championship or League One is possible early on, while he can also be snapped up for a reasonable fee if desired.
