There is nothing better in FIFA 17 than a teenage wonderkid, and if they are nurtured they can turn into world beating superstars. They will bring your club long term success and a very particular sense of pride that can only come when you feel like you personally have helped craft a squad that is legendary. Also, they can save you a bucketload when it comes to transfer fees and may even gain you profit if you choose to sell them on.
The best teenage players in the game can often outperform other ageing stars, and unlike their elders, they will always improve. Luckily, few struggle with Freddy Adu syndrome in FIFA 17.
Obviously, a blossoming teenager in every position would be great, but realistically you may want to start by building the spine of your starting eleven and mixing with older heads. If you combine an unflappable goalkeeper, tough tackling centre back, creative midfielder, and a striker who scores for fun, you have the basis for a formidable young team.
As ever, FIFA 17 offers an enormous amount of teenage players to sign, so it can be a hit and miss process if you sign youngsters gung-ho. To save you this inconvenience and help you watch the trophy cabinet expand, here are 25 teenage wonderkids you really must sign...
