FIFA 20 Career Mode: Jadon Sancho, Kai Havertz and the best potential Bundesliga XI

The brand new FIFA 20 game is set to be released by EA Sports on Tuesday 24 September. As it does every year, the footballing world's leading game gives you the chance to play with your favourite players, build your Ultimate Team and even become the manager of your club and take them to the top.

Gamers are always searching for the best wonderkids to sign on the Career Mode of FIFA, and that won't change with FIFA 20. Therefore, bundesliga.com wants to help out those searching for the best young talent the Bundesliga has to offer.

Featuring the likes of Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz and RB Leipzig's Tyler Adams, here is the dream Bundesliga XI on FIFA 20 Career Mode, using a 4-2-3-1 formation considering each player's comfortable positions on the game and the highest potential rating of each player.


Christian Früchtl (Bayern Munich) – Current: 65, Potential: 82

At just 19, Früchtl is the perfect goalkeeper to buy and build your team from. Ideally, Bayern's current third-choice goalkeeper can work as a back-up in your team to start with but will rise through the ratings with training.

Achraf Hakimi (Borussia Dortmund) – Current: 79, Potential: 86

Despite Hakimi's starting position on FIFA 20 being at left-back, the Morocco international is equally adept at playing at right-back. His high current rating of 79 means he'll be able to fit into your team immediately. However, you'll have to wait one season to sign him from Real Madrid, with the 20-year-old in the final season of his loan deal with Dortmund in 2019/20.


Ibrahima Konate (RB Leipzig) – Current: 79, Potential: 88
Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig) – Current: 77, Potential: 88

Two of the future's best defenders from the same country and already at the same club. The potential that comes with Konate and Upamecano is unparalleled. Whether you start your career mode with Leipzig or another club, these two will be key to your success. The pair are also ideal for the game with their strong pace-height combination. Konate stands at 6'4" with a 78 pace rating already, while Upamecano is 6'1" with 76 pace. The possibilities are endless with these two in your squad.

Dan-Axel Zagadou (Borussia Dortmund) – Current: 79, Potential: 86

The third French defender on this list is another versatile one. Zagadou's card is at centre-back, but he can also play at left-back or even central defensive midfield. At 6'5" tall, the 20-year-old is almost impossible to get through and will be a powerhouse in aerial battles. Lining him up alongside Konate and Upamecano will help create the perfect chemistry with three Frenchmen next to one another.


Defensive midfield:

Arne Maier (Hertha Berlin) – Current: 76, Potential: 88
Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig) – Current: 76, Potential: 86

Holding your midfield together can be this dynamic pair of German and American efficiency. Both at 20 years of age, Maier and Adams also offer different styles of play to each other. The former possesses the better passing rating and can be your deep-lying playmaker, while the latter is the robust hard-working option and already has 76 pace, 73 defending and 75 physical ratings. Adams is also able to play at right-back, should your team require him to do so.

Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) – Current: 84, Potential: 92
Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen) – Current: 84, Potential: 92
Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) – Current: 72, Potential: 87

Two of world football's most talented players are in the Bundesliga, and their work on the pitch in recent seasons has been reflected with their ratings in FIFA 20. Sancho and Havertz are both already 84 rated players, and have the potential to become an incredible 92 rated.

Sancho is already one of the hottest prospects on FIFA 20. The England international has five-star skills, four-star weak foot and can play on either wing. With 88 pace and 92 dribbling, Sancho already has high ratings for the two most important attributes for a winger.

While Davies has a far less current rating, the Canadian's potential of 87 makes him a must-have in your attack. He'll have defenders on the back foot already with his 91 pace and, at only 18 years of age, can be your left winger for the majority of your Career Mode.


Matheus Cunha (RB Leipzig) – Current: 74, Potential: 85

There should always be room for some Brazilian flair in a FIFA team, and our Bundesliga XI gets that from Cunha. Scorer of a wonder-goal against Bayer Leverkusen in 2018/19, the Leipzig striker has four-star skills, four-star weak foot and already has 70+ ratings for pace, shooting and dribbling.

Luca Plogmann (Werder Bremen) – Current: 63, Potential: 81
Evan N'Dicka (Eintracht Frankfurt) – Current: 76, Potential: 86
Ethan Ampadu (RB Leipzig) – Current: 67, Potential: 86
Weston McKennie (Schalke) – Current: 76, Potential: 86
Paulinho (Bayer Leverkusen) – Current: 71, Potential: 86
Jacob Bruun Larsen (Borussia Dortmund) – Current: 75, Potential: 85
Ahmed Kutucu (Schalke) – Current: 68, Potential: 85

You can have yourself a complete squad with these stars on the bench. McKennie provides incredible versatility as well as his massive potential, starting as a central midfielder but being able to play almost anywhere.

Bruun Larsen and Paulinho are already solid ratings and the potential matches their talent.
