FIFA 16 Man Utd Career Mode Guide

So you think you can do better than Louis van Gaal do you?

The Dutchman has left the building and you’re the new boss at Old Trafford. Now, despite having a large pile of cash at your disposal and some extremely talented players, a career save with Manchester United on FIFA 16 isn’t as easy as you would first imagine.

Luckily the board expectations have been lowered on the latest version but (rightfully) you’re still expected to make the Champions League spots. Now if you’re playing on world class or legendary level this isn’t going to be easy and you will need to make the right decisions pre-season to avoid being removed from your position come May.

Armed with a tasty £57.5 million (or more if you can take advantage of the bonus % increase) and a wage budget of £1,895,250 it’s time to fix the Red Devils’ squad. Do you need a striker or are you going to trust Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial? Is Andre Herrera good enough to be your number ten and surely you’re going to need a central defender?

Here is what I decided are the best decisions to make (after three or four questionable careers with the Man United squad) that are sure to make you the next Alex Ferguson…

1. Make Sure You Update Your Squads Before You Start

A very obvious and brief first tip: If you don’t update your squads then you will have to endure the agony of having Sergio Romero as your starting goalkeeper and Marouane Fellaini as your centre forward every time you go into your team management.

If you can put up with that then ignore this information but you’re a stronger man than me

2. Utilise Fellaini As Much As You Can (Or Sell)

Physicality is a big thing on FIFA 16 and due to the new defensive controls it’s handy to have a strong man in your side. Marouane Fellaini’s 89 physical rating puts him in the top bracket, which means that regardless of your opinion of him in real life he could actually be a crucial player for your Manchester United side.

He works well in the centre of midfield as he can steal the ball from lighter midfielders and start poignant counter attacks. He also wins a lot of the aerial balls that come from both goalkeepers meaning he will consistently help you retain possession.

BUT. If you cannot bare to have the Belgian brute anywhere near your Red Devils’ starting eleven then I would advise you to get rid of the player as you can make around £12 million (that does get you a very decent replacement) if you counter the offer a couple of times.

3. Send Andreas Pereira And Jesse Lingard Out On Loan

Andreas Pereira (66 overall FUT rating) and Jesse Lingard (69 overall FUT rating) could be two potential future superstars for your Manchester United career mode but they need to be handled with care.

I loan spell would work well for the pair and it’s up to you whether you list them for a one or a two year spell. Hopefully the players will both return as a near to a 75 rating as possible and then you can start to better them through training and a run in the first team side.

Warning. Do not sell them or release them as they have great potential on the game.
