What is Potential?

Potential, in Fifa 19, is the predicted maximum overall rating of the player, which can be achieved if a player is played and trained in the right way. It is important to know this fact that high potential doesn't guarantee that a player will reach that level. For a player to achieve his potential he must be given regular game time and must attend training sessions frequently.

Scouting and uncovering potential wonderkids have been one the best features of FIFA's Career Mode and this year is no different. 

Signing a big name is always satisfying but finding a youngster who can become a world- beater after a few seasons is even more exciting. It doesn't matter whether you are managing a champions league contender or rebuilding a team, these players can be game changers for any team. Nothing captures a football fan's attention quite like highly talented prodigies.

The best young players are essential to build a long-term squad. A squad of best potential under-20 players would mean that you have a secured the best team of the upcoming decade.

This guide suggests standout players at every position and their alternatives. Remember you might not be able to get some of these players during the first transfer window because of the club's unwillingness to sell. Some of these players are can be played in multiple positions.

Whilst younger, lower overall players might cost you less, try to sign more players in the first transfer window itself.

Here is the Best Potential XI below 20 years of age. Sign these gems and watch them grow from edgy teenagers to World-beaters.

These stats are based on the start of 2018-19 season of the FIFA 19 Career mode.
