Best midfielders in FIFA 23 Career Mode

An amazing striker will get you goals and a CB will help you to shut out opponents, but midfielders can bridge the gap between attack and defense by offering extra cover, providing assists to the forwards, and contributing goals themselves.

In this position, you have CDMs, CMs, CAMs, LMs, and RMs, and the game’s top 10 best midfielders can be found across these different positions – showing how versatile a midfield can be.

Obviously, unless you’re in charge of PSG or Manchester City then you won’t be able to go out and buy them just like that. If you can, here are the best players to buy in FIFA 23 Career Mode.
